I'm at the Juneau airport right now, waiting for my connecting flight.
I took the bus/light rail system to the Phoenix airport. I wouldn't suggest it to many. It even became a bit long for me. But part of that was hauling my bags with me. I left Wickenburg at 7:50 am and arrived at the airport around 11:30. But it was only $5.50 for the entire trip.
Vegas was fun. Won some, lost some, won more, lost most of that again. But came out about $10 up. I was up over $100 at the peak and down $20 at the lowest. I went to the comedy club at the Riviera. There was a comedian that won some part of the old talent show Star Search. There was also another that had played the part of the mother of the child in the Ugly Baby episode of Seinfeld...if you've seen that one. Then there was Dom Irrera.
The other night I stopped by on of the half-price ticket outlets and picked up a ticket to see Louie Anderson. I thought I'd keep it all comedy shows. He was good...good enough for the half-price.
The train was enjoyable. It goes right along the coast for a little more than 120 miles. We went by the fire in Santa Barbara too. Sometimes you can meet interesting people along the way too.
Seattle was a good choice too. I think I feel the same way about the hotel as I did Anderson's show. It was a nice place for the money that I paid through hotwire....I might have thought a little different if I had paid the full fare though. The Coffee Crawl was informative, not only about coffee, but the city as well. I met Kari, from CoolWorks, there. After the Crawl we went for lunch at one of her favorite fish and chips places in West Seattle and she showed me a few more things in the area. In the afternoon I explored the Pike Place area of downtown.
The chocolate class at Oh, Chocolate was somewhat informative, but it was a lot of fun. Since I'm not a total beginner I already knew most of the stuff they were talking about. But I did learn some techniques.
When we landed here in Juneau, they said the outside temp was 34. I have not gone outside though so I can't tell you if I have adjusted yet.
