    I was going to rush finishing my Beetle but the drive is prohibitive so hopefully next year.

    We'll be driving in from Southern Texas. Roughly about 4 hours away. We'll be in our little car, but $60 round trip in gas really helps!

    Flying in Wednesday and leaving Monday. Normal plans. Hopefully with it being not all the way West I won't be wiped out upon arrival.

    I'll be driving as I always do for every one of these shows. Only this year I don't need a roadmap as I just need to hit I-35 from Iowa all the way to Dallas.

    I will be driving from Raleigh, NC all the way there. Stopping overnight in Atlanta to stay with some friends to break up the trip a bit. Gonna be a long haul, but probably still cheaper in gas than a plane ticket will be. Also, way, way easier to get stuff home that way.

    I would fly if it would be that cheap, but it isn't. The flight there isn't bad, but getting a flight that actually goes back to Raleigh? That alone is about as much as your round trip ;_;

    Yeah depends on the airport. when I went to Botcon 07 it was cheaper for me to fly into Boston and rent a car and drive the rest of the way (about an hour) than it was for me to fly into Providence directly
