One Step Forward…..

One small step….we were able to check in….had to wait for 2 minutes though….

as is BCbythesea’s….habit….we were early….and according to Delta Airlines…6 hours means 6 hours…not a minute sooner…(or 2….)

We can now move further into the airport….

onto to the security…. drivers licenses out.. prized boarding passes in hand….and….

we are chosen to be scanned further….

no huge surprise considering we are last minute…really hours….7 &1/2 long hours…. (mentioned in previous post)…passengers…

a quick …loud …yell….and we felt like we were in an E.F. Hutton commercial….everyone was listening….

we were sent down a separate passage way…to the special screening personnel…. all our stuff put out in various gray trays……and through the “puffer”….

the guy before me…feeling the effects of a real Las Vegas weekend….had a few choice words…. not to smart…

although….a little levity…always helps these awkward situations….

1-2-3- puff….and on to the rest of the check…using a pad that looks like the ‘Stridex” pads of our broken- out youth..he swabs the interior of each bag…each item…and files them in what looks oddly like a CD holder….

all clear…boarding pass returned after ….4 old fashioned punch holes were put in it….how strange…all this new hi-tech machinery and the results….are in 4 plain ordinary punch holes like they used at events before scanners…. eons ago….

On to the tram….to the designated gate area….

Upon entering…we find the Las Vegas Aviation Museum….which really entails 4 kiosk looking cabinets….explaining its development…. the history and progress made … both politically and culturally….through the years…

Back to the long walk to gate D40….we see repeats of all the major staples found within the airports of the present time….Burger King…Starbucks…Cinnabons…Quiznos….and such…

ahhh…now that was progress that was not included within the 4 kiosks of the Aviation Museum displayed at their entryway…

An abundance of seats….a gorgeous mountain view….more junk food than anyone could imagine….we’re set…

4 &1/2 hours to go….

Just paged ….missing passenger.. Too Win….really!….
