i love that line - so fitting...

was not going to rent car - wifes family is there.
good point on web searches - i will check them out this evening.
doing the math on driving - expect the roundtrip drive to take about $600
not to mention "pain and suffering" with the kids...

i am thinking a transition point may be about $900 USD....
If i can get airfare ( and the additonal bag charges) for under 900 - i will probably take it... If not i think driving will win out.

Anyone else ever play the "Do i drive or do i fly" game? expecially with kids - if so how do you deside where is the transition point between a long drive or a flight?
