For those of you traveling to/from shows (and anywhere else) in the next few months, be aware that many flights are being CANCELLED due to safety inspections.

This is for the MD-30 plane, which is the small one that we typically fly on domestically (2 rows on each side of the aisle).

Check ahead with airlines and make other arrangements as needed!!

That will take 4ever...but very understandable...they closed Sky Bus' terminal here last week...didn't even tell ppl. Ppl were just arriving to the airport to find out that the flight had been cancelled. That's the last thing you need is to be prepared for a show and stranded at an airport!!! So happy I'll be able to drive to Charleston...b/c it doesn't seem like things are go'n 2get better anytime soon.

Gas will be well over $4 in Northern IL by June 20th. I was shocked last year when I drove from STL to Chi for Jrs. It was like, maybe 3.19-3.29 in St. Louis, got up to Chicago and it was $3.69 or more around O'Hare. Gonna go way past that this year during peak driving season.

Thanks for the heads up. This will also help non fbb/fit/fig people. Time to plan for alternative means of transportation.......

I might have to invest in a Hybrid car. With each day that gos by,it looks like ethanol fuel is the wave of the future.

I'm not sure about that. You might want to read this article before you consider using ethanol.

Hmmm interesting read. I guess for now, we might have to bring out our old bikes and invest in segway and segway type transporters. 10 years ago, Dean Kamen and his "Ginger" segway were supposed to revolutionize transportation.....
