I do on occasion convince myself of the need to fly to some distant destination. Usually due to something I have to do, like a family funeral, wedding, or something of that nature. In the last three years, I have flown twice, and prior to that the last time I flew was in 1989. Now for the first time in a very long time, I’m going to fly because of something I want to do. This weekend, I’m flying to Vegas to visit, The Star Trek Experience before it closes in September.
Yes I’m a Trekkie, and so is almost everybody in my family. I posted about the adventure closing back in June. If you check out the comments on that post, you’ll see what I mean about my family being tried and true Trekkies. We are devoted no doubt, but far from obsessive, maybe. Any way, I have never had the opportunity to go to The Star Trek Experience, and my sisters felt it was something that I had to see. Kel who had frequent flyer miles got me a ticket, and Tinaleigh who gets free hotel rooms set me up with a room.
Unfortunately, Kel will not be able to make it, but Tinaleigh will be there. She has been many a time, and will I’m sure have plenty for me to see. She is the list type or itinerary type of person, so I’m sure my weekend will be full. One place I will have to go is Quark’s Bar, just to see all the people in costume and possible try a Cardasian Fish And Chips or a Warp Core Breach.
Needless to say I am just a tad bit excited, and all aquiver with anticipation. I will however probably suffer from blog withdrawal, but perhaps Tinaliegh will bring her laptop so I can update.
