  • That would be very nice, Ruth.

    I will do my best to get there. If I go to an NYC airport, I can get a rate of around $250, with about $100 in travel fom my house. If I travel from the closest airport, It will cost $500. Not sure saving the $150 is worth the hassle. Any recommendations on best travel sites etc?

    • Kayak.com gave me a rate from Newburgh to St. Louis of $250 for the July dates we were looking at. Paula, check them and see if it is cheaper to fly for the set of dates around the 15th or the ones around the 20th. And we can pin it down from there.

      If we can get a kitchen I can bring some groceries since I will be driving.

        • Chris, when I input the dates I always get prices of $5-600. I'm not sure what you are looking at.

            Ah, if you make the airport flexible the rates come down too, but then outgoing airport is White Plains, and the one you get back to is Newark

            • OMG! it is open house at the asylum! I am getting the craziest requests today, not the least of which is from a woman who tried to stiff DS after the research she was paying him to do turned up nothing. She wants someone else to do the research now. Then *TMI Alert* after taking a day off my TOM started back up mid day today. Luckily I had something in my purse, but come on! when can I be done with this thing?

              • WOW!! Crazy train stopping in your depot! LOL Did she pay him? I mean really, time is worth something even when there are no results. Hopefully TOM is going on its way out for good.

                • In the end she did pay him. Basically because of her, our policy about how outside researchers get paid has been changed. And yes the agreement was for him to do the search, she gave some excuse that it was Christmas and she didn't know it was going to be that much, blah blah. He had actually written to her after he had done 2 hours to let her know how slow going it actually was and how long/how much money it was going to take to complete it. He was essentially trying to talk/scare her out of it, as it was horribly boring for him. But she told him to press on. He wrote her back a pretty controlled response that essentially told her it was Christmas for him too, and reminded her of their agreement and his warnings to her about the costs, sending her copies of the transactions. Then she responded with an "oh no" I put that check in the mail, maybe you put your address down wrong, BS.

                  In this request, she said if we can fulfill her request she won't ask for a refund on her membership (membership in our society is required in order to do research here-it is $36.50 a year and gives you an hour of free archivists time among other things)

                    • SPEED gathering. FYI due to having tickets for the Daily show on July 24th, I am only available the week of the 14th through the 18th. But, don't make your plans around me because I am not a sure thing due to money etc.

                      • I got to thinking.. maybe playing with the dates is the key. Their are peak days of the week for an airline just like for hotels I am sure. We can be pretty flexible.

                        • Unfortunately the low peak days are Tuesday and Thursday and apparently Saturday. The airport she leaves from and returns to makes more of a difference money wise.

                          • I will see today if I can get the time off.

                            Too bad we can't do Vegas or something (I'm not into gambling...but shopping, shows, etc.). I can get us a great timeshare there

                            • I don't have airline miles, and feel sure DH would not be thrilled with me flying to a meet up (plus I am not a great flyer, and this trip would be short enough that I would not have enough recovery time and still have time to have fun), and it is a 26 hour drive from Nashville. So Vegas would not work for me.

                              Wondering if this summer is the best time to do this?
