I try to deplete as much ozone as possible. Therefore I fly everywhere.

The best part of traveling is the getting there. My son and I will be backpacking near Mesa Verde Colorado, stopping along the way to camp,hike, bike, and consume every bit of being away from today's society we can. The last thing I would want to do is get on an overpriced, overcrowded plane with rude people and employees. Flying used to be fun, I wish my son could have experienced that.

I think the only planned vacation we have this summer is to Branson so I doubt we'd need to fly. Although I'm hoping to see some flying rolls over at Lambert's on the way there!

Yes. Savannah!!! Would love to drive and take our time going through Tennessee and the Smokey Mountains, but have heard horror stories about the traffic in Atlanta. No thanks!

Flying is nothing to worry about, if it's your time to die, then so be it.... why do you think they serve alcohol ? I'll be flying to the Florida keys this year, via hot air balloon.

I've been invited to a wedding in South Carolina on Memorial Day. A friend suggested leaving the driving to Greyhound. I've taken Greyhound on shorter trips, but hadn't considered it for this one. Rates round trip with 21-day advance purchase are just too sweet to pass up! The money I save on transportation can go towards a couple of nights at Motel 6 and a couple of days with a rental car.

Yes, four r/t 1st class tickets free. Wife is an A/A Platinum member with 350k miles in the account.......well 150k now since booking the W. Palm tickets yesterday----but that's what they're for.

Flying has become a huge hassle. No liquids, pay for each piece of luggage, show up extra early, take your shoes off, etc, etc. When I can swing it time or money wise, I take the train. It's comfortable and luxurious compared to flying, and if you're only going to Chicago, it's really not that much longer. If I'm going to California, I'll fly though. I love the train, but not enough to spend three days on it.

No, I would rather see the countryside. Besides if your flight is 8 hours or less, why bother. You will lose that much time just messing with using the plane. Oh, and Arizona wont be on my list of places to go.

I've flown many times, taken a train once, a bus once. By preference I would rather drive.

You can take the time to see the country, stop and smell the roses! Flying today is like riding in a cattle car! Now back in the 60's and 70's flying was comfortable and fun!

The coach class was better than today's 1st class, and 1st class really was.

I have been debating on taking my grandson's on a train trip to San Antonio.

Yes, of course we are flying. Virginia this year.
bcman - that is a beautiful place to visit. I just love that area. There was a little place called Gilbert's in Portland last time we were there. Huge steaming bowl of mussels - the best! Have fun!

We might go to meteor crater and the grand canyon in the fall. It depends on how much we have left after upgrading the engine/drivetain in the vette. 12 seconds or bust.

I am afraid of intergalactic travel although as of this date there have been no known cases of human deaths as a result.

Palm Springs next week. Oregon this summer, one of the kids bought a house. Want to get back to Costa Rica sometime in the next year. I so regret not buying land there when it was cheap. grammaddy, your fear of flying is irrational. The only modes of transportation safer than flying are the escalator and elevator.

Due to my funds it will be Lake of the Ozarks, and Bagnell Dam where I can ride the go carts, take a ride on a houseboat, miniature golf, and batting cages.

The whole Central America to the States trip is a bit cumbersome by car. And there's all those pesky border crossings. Flying. It's the only way to go.

Sorry about your fear of flying, grammaddy.

China's a little too far to drive to.

Not really a vacation, bit it's the only place I'm going.

I have never flown and after 9/11 I never will. If I can't get there by boat, train, bus or car, I don't need to go.
