    Hi Everyone!!!

    We begin our long journey to the promise land tomorrow...or should I say today as it’s now after midnight. As some of you know we’ve had a hell of time with our flights as no one is flying direct to Vegas from Toronto. AirFUCanada canceled our original flight and we now have an overnight layover in LA and San Fran on the way home. We leave tomorrow at 6:30pm and land in LA at 8:30.

    I spent the night packing for both Patrick and I as he’s closing the restaurant which means he won’t be home until 1am...starting to think he did that intentionally.

    Oh can’t forget the shoe porn Oh and Go Leafs Go!!!!!

    Sadly this beauty will not fit in any of my suitcases which might be a good thing as it weighs a ton so I had to pack the pieces individually.

    I still need to go slather myself in self tanner so I don’t blind people with my white legs

    The last thing on our list is to exchange our money tomorrow before heading to the airport.

    meh, most.
    at first I thought that was an exorbitant amount of shoes, but then I realized it was for two.
    Have fun and good luck.. I've lived in two of those places and spend quite a bit of time in one.

    Any fun plans for the layovers?

    Too funny - I bring 2 pairs of shoes for a 4 day trip - one pair of running shoes for slotting and a a nicer pair of 'dress casual' shoes for dinner :)

    Haha I have a shoe problem but not that much of a shoe problem I have been known to travel with carryon consisting of just shoes.

    We are staying at the courtyard Marriott at LAX tonight. Nothing fun planned other than maybe taking an Uber to the beach as I’ve never seen the ocean It’ll be dark but at least I can say I’ve now seen the ocean. As for San Fran we land earlier at 5:30pm. We are staying at the intercontinental Mark Hopkins which is in the Nob Hill area so we will do some exploring but no concrete plans.

    I think there is a great bar at the top of the Mark Hopkins.
    maybe catch a ride on a trolley car if they are still running.

    Never seen the ocean? you should try to catch sunrise if you can.
    I think close to now +- 1 hr is the perfect time to catch the uber.
    Venice boardwalk is also something to see,
    don't know about now, but usually. probably still is..

    I wish I had the ability to do that...this was the end result after narrowing it down and eliminating some options.

    Sex toys like this usually get flagged at the airport.

    (A friend told me that...)

    Safe travels and good luck. Bring back a few billion of US dollars to make them pay for those new tariffs :)

    Thank you!!!! That’s the plan I think I’m due for a winning trip or at least a break even. I normally come home with moths in my wallet

    You're in a great spot in San Francisco for some exploring. Easy walks to Chinatown, North Beach, The Embarcadero, or even Fisherman's Wharf.

    It's kind of touristy, but the seals at Fishermans Wharf, a sourdough bread bowl clam chowder, and Ghiradelli chocalate is very only in San Francico.

    (oops sea lions)

    Good luck, have fun and stay safe! Looking forward to following.
    When I first saw the Dyson pic, wondered why you were bringing a vacuum cleaner to Vegas.
