Traffic in LV is murder and CES is making available cabs a rarity so we got up early early and ended up getting to the airport about 2 hours before we needed to but no biggie. The only sacrifice was a good breakfast. We had a mediocre one. The food this trip has all been expensive and ranged from perfection at Roy's last night to the worst ever cheeseburger and fries and lemonade at CES yesterday.
It's 9 am now and all these Southwest gates are packed. I'm in the A group for my flight #24 so I'm not stressed. My feet are so so so sore. When I get home, I'm going to bed and I may not get up for days. Happily, I have nothing on my hit parade so I have the luxury of taking as much time as I want to recover.
And it was so worth it. I had such a wonderful time with my brother. And we already locked in next year. Plus every year we get smarter about how to see what we see. I am going to spend the next 12 months finding the perfect shoes. The one I wore this year missed the mark - by a lot.
Right now I'm looking forward to some humid air for breathing - my nose is done with the desert.
