Vegas, the Arrival
Just arrived in Las Vegas. I initially was going to drive here from Salt Lake where I had stopped over to see my family, but in the end I decided to fly. I may have made the wrong decision. By the time you account for a conservative airport arrival, baggage hassles, a delayed plane and trouble with hotel shuttles, I didn't really save any time. I left the house at 7:45 to arrive at my hotel at 12:30 (which would have been 1:30 MST). So, in the end, the trip took me just under 6 hours. The drive is about 5 hours.
Then again, it was certainly a less active effort on my part and I actually was able to get some work done on the plane. Either way, it's nice to be here and safe.
