The motel where I stayed near LAX (web photo) offered a continental breakfast. I took them up on it. Since I had printed out my boarding pass ahead of time, I felt I didn't need to get to the airport too early. However, I gave myself two hours and used the motel shuttle which took me right to the Delta terminal at LAX. Although I didn't have to check in, I still had to go through security. That line was OUT THE DOOR. Inside, the line snaked all over the place, then up the stairs, through a side room, and finally to a TSA person. It took me over one hour to get through security. But I still made the plane. My stop was in Minneapolis since Delta acquired Northwest and Minneapolis was a hub for Northwest. My layover was a bit long, but I got home. Cards lost badly! Next weekend John and I will do a pair of Patteson pelagics out of Hatteras.
