In Las Vegas for Defcon 16
I just finally got checked into my hotel and its been an adventure already. Except for my shuttle not showing up and taking a cab, the trip started out ok. However, when I got into Vegas I knew something had to go wrong. Yep, US Assways lost my bag. Its amazing how an industry that goes to great lengths to create some annoying levels of security and policies, can’t seem to keep track of baggage. That really frightens me, how is this possible ? I can understand it happening once in a while, but its just far too common.
Needless to say, I need to sleep in dirty cloths tonight and need to wear them tomorrow as well. With some lucky maybe my bag will appear tomorrow morning. They have a limited number of flights here per day, and I was on the last one of the day. Great.
What pisses me off more then anything is that I have no clean socks. After wondering around my hotel for a while, I was able to purchase some dress socks. Guess what, that is good enough for me. (For now)
I asked what the airline expected me to do about brushing my teeth and what not. They responded with this small bag of stuff to get me through the night. I am happy they provided it for me, but not happy I needed to beg for it.
So far Circus Circus has been an annoying hotel. It took far too long for me to find my room. I love how they have maps all over the place, and none of them indicating “You are here”.
I was told they have internet access in all the rooms, however I can’t find a jack and no wifi signal. Good thing I brought my EVDO card. The connection speed is far faster then it was last year, so I am just going to stick using it.
I am off to find something to drink and maybe a light snack. I have a bit of a headache that I need to shake.
