The airline freak out edition.
Ok, freak out is too strong of a description.
People, I haven’t been on a plane since the 90’s, saying things have changed would be an understatement. So can I pick your brains?
So, yeah no real tickets anymore? I either print it at home or once I get to the airport? That’s so odd.
Can you really not lock your luggage anymore?
And what’s with the no assigned seats?
I mean for crying out loud, the last time I flew it was on an airline called Ryan International and my flight number was 007. Doesn’t even sound legit but I had an assigned seat. I was also flying over the ocean so maybe that makes a difference who knows.
Can I take food? Like my drink mix and some gummy bears? Or is that a bad idea? A bottle of water?
Or medications? I can throw them all in a jumble in one container right? I don’t have to lug 4 pill bottles around with me do I?
How about a tennis ball? My back sure would appreciate it. 😛
I know nothing!
You should check in the day before? Well, that’s just stressful. I don’t really have internet or printer access or work so that means I can’t until I get home. Among everything else I need to do before leaving for the airport Friday morning.
Oh and that airport is still a good 3 hours away from here.
Am I missing anything?
Any helpful flying tips?

I’m going to Las Vegas!!!
Seriously, I still can’t believe it’s happening. I also still don’t know how but that’s beside the point. 😛 I have wanted to run this race ever since I flipped a page in Runner’s World a few years ago and realized there was a race on the Vegas Strip. And it was at night. I want to do that!!! As amazing as it looked, I could never make it work. So when the chance to run it came up this year, I leapt without looking.
I’m going to Vegas!
Sorry had to say it again. 😛 I haven’t been to Las Vegas since I was a child- seriously the only thing I remember is colorful carpeting and even that might be confused with another memory. Ha! Due to scheduling conflicts, my mother is busy so I’m also flying solo this race trip. Who wants to join me?!? Slacker’s first real trip to Vegas? 😁
This is also an afternoon- evening race so I don’t even have to worry about an early wake up call! I can sleep in and look forward to an afternoon run with thousands of other crazy runners like me under the Vegas lights! Is it November yet?
Now I just have to figure out how I am getting there. This could be my first plane ride since my senior trip in high school! Ok, now this post is making me feel nostalgic and old. 😛
I will have a discount code soon that I will share with everyone.
Have you ever run Las Vegas?
Want to come run with me?
