Not driving for hours and hours and hours - Yay!

Yesterday, I checked for airline seat sales and got really lucky. Generally, I would have to wait until six weeks before the trip. I don't know what prompted me to check earlier. Anyway, I managed to get three round trip tickets for slightly less than it would cost us to drive and stay in cheap hotels. On top of that, we save a total of six days of travel time (three each way)! The flights are moderately convenient. We get into Edmonton just after midnight when the car rental agencies are closed and the return flight is a red-eye. The key is that, even though two of us are leaving from Ottawa and one from Toronto, we will at least be on the same planes between Toronto and Edmonton.

We will get to the reunion and be only mildly tired from the trip instead of exhausted from four days of driving. We'll be a day early so we can rest up for the festivities. We will also get home on the Saturday of the long weekend, so we can rest and relax before returning to a hectic work week.

The good news is that I won't miss more than a week of work. Since I run my own business, this is a huge plus.
