the circle widens II
I'm going. The only question remaining is do I fly or drive... big bucks or 12 hours behind the wheel?

you should drive, don't you think?
You won't be in a rush to get there and you will get to see parts of the country you will not likely see again. You have the time and now you have your border-crossing schtick down.
I think it'll be more than 12 hours, dude.
In any event, I agree with Robert. Driving gives space for thinking time. Not so crucial on the way down, but v. v. important for the way back.
Hooray!!! I'll call you on Tuesday on our way to Salt Lake. Yellowstone and the Tetons tomorrow for our "just us" day...SLC on Tuedsay...and home sweet home on Wednesday...can't wait!!!!!!! What a trip. Remind me to tell you about the phone call I got today in Ketchum, ID...whew!
10 hours 13 minutes, according to Mapquest. No matter - I booked my flight this morning!
I fly Vancouver - Denver - Boise. And the ticket is cheaper than when I flew to Denver last month. Also, these are United aircraft, but I booked through Air Canada's web site, and the price is a lot cheaper than if I booked on the United site.
Even back in the day when I was paid to understand business, I could never figure out the airlines. No wonder these guys are all going bankrupt.
Glad to hear your coming to the gathering..let me know if u need anything...picked up at the airport, host home etc....
Let me know your schedule....Look forward to hanging out.
Grace and peace,
I think you should fly :) I am :)) But then again it's pretty hard to drive across the Pacific.
