Life lesson learnt number 2 – oh fuck!

Posted by David McKell On June - 5 - 2011
Ok ok. So here iam sitting at the airport. Now you might be asking why iam at an airport because iam traveling by bus everywhere. Well good question! Ok so I might have missed the bus. Maybe. Yea I did. We may have had a big night at a club last night. Which was awesome. But if memory serves me correctly, which isn’t the best right now….I got back to casino/hotel at 430-5am. And the bus left at 845. I had all my alarms set and everything. But I woke up at 1030. So yea kinda was/am shitting myself. Quickly had a shower and went downstairs. I thought the quickest way to grand canyon was by plane. Turns out no one really flys there. Hmmmm. Anyway lovely lady at the information desk at Los Vegas airport was able to point me to another airport which do like charter flights. So got a taxi from airport 1 to airport 2. Some 30 minutes of spirited driving by rob the awesome taxi man. Iam now sitting in some small airport waiting for my flight. It’s a small plane and going to be rough. I have not had food or much water so I will probably struggle. So yea iam sure i will cop a it when i meet up With the group again. Its good though, it doesnt matter what i do whether i am missing the bus or with everyone iam doing what i want. The trip out here was nice, beautiful scenery and good people.  Anyway I love it over here but iam missing home. Oh ice-cream. Cya.
Ok I wrote that post as i was at the North Las Vegas Airport as i was waiting for the plane. The plane was 30mins late and i was really hungry as i had had no food. But anyway i got on the plane and the flight was amazing! It was about 40minutes to the GRand Canyon and flew over Hoover Dam (which contiki didnt even stop for) and the grand canyon. Absolutely amazing views! So glad i missed that bus as i had an awesome experience and when i made it back had a great story to tell everyone. So i landed at Grand Canyon airport (which has wifi FYI) and was expecting maybe some taxis or publoic transport…but nope. None of that. Just the tour bus for the people on the plane i was with. So i just talked to him about my situation and being thea awesome guy he was agreed to drop me at the resort. He was really friendly and i got half a tour out of him as well. I gave  him a pretty good tip for his efforts.
Anyway here are the pictures (note probably half of them are blurry, i just dont have time to check them):</p>
