Airfare Booked!

Well, it's done. We booked our airfare for Palm Springs yesterday. There's something so exciting about taking that step, that commitment. We're leaving on March 19 flying into LAX on a 6:45 am flight. We originally had wanted to fly into Orange County but it was a later flight and about $40 more expensive, so we opted for LAX. We return on Saturday March 22 on a 3:45 flight. Now I need to find out if there's any hiking in the area as Chris really wants to do that. Me, I'm up for sitting by a pool, reading some good books.

Also on the California travel front, we booked our rental car for our Paso Robles weekend - $35 a day for a Ford Taurus or equivalent, not too bad. I had started looking into booking a car for Palm Springs and out of curiosity looked at the convertibles, but they wanted $95 a day - way too much considering I can drive one at home for free.

Thanks Jerry - I wrote Kathy this morning. Will report back with what I've found.


LOTS of hiking trails in the Indian Canyons! Up at the top of the tram where Kathy went is SNOW. I will bring you some info to Paso.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrr poolside for me!

Palma, that would be fabulous - while we like being in the mountains - we'd much prefer to hike where it isn't freezing!

We should talk dinner - we were thinking Thursday night, if that works for you.
