    I know the answer to this one.

    Spotts bought me a ticket to the Pat/Bronco game two years back. All I had to do is get there. Which of course I did because you can't get tickets to Foxbough.

    But I degress.. I flew into Denver. And then rented a car. It takes about the same amount of time to drive from Denver to Ft. Morgan as it does to drive from Albany airport to Bennington. The only difference being is that Ft. Morgan is 80 miles from Denver and Bennington is only 50 miles from Albany. THERE ARE A LOT OF WIDE OPEN SPACES OUT THERE IN COLORADO!!!!!

    It is mostly interstate from the Airport to Ft. Morgan. (I forgot which one. I-70??). There ain't no place for cops to hide so 80 is the norm.

    There isnt too many places for them to hide on I-80 on that stretch. But occassionally they use planes, so if you speed on the wrong day! They will get you.

    DIA Southern. It's a pain in the ass to fly from Greensburo to DIA. No direct flights. I've been there twice last year. It burns up a whole day. Do you have a bigger airport you can depart from? Id look at those options. Save some time and money. I was just thinking..... Hey!~ I get a free vacation this year!~ Not gonna use up my miles on the convention. Whooo ahhh!

    I will be flying out of Raleigh/Durham airport. I don't think they have a direct flight either. Or I just haven't found it yet.

    I did find direct flights out of Raleigh back in the day........ It should be better than GSO. The code is DEN while yer searching.

    In my limited search United has a direct flight but it is expensive and looks like it doesn't leave till late afternoon on that Friday United # 561 and it is pricey.... 585 a person RT

    Found some reasonable flights with one stop for 346 RDU to DEN layover in the ATL

    Honestly Prices may come down if the airlines have fare reduction sales, But where will Oil prices go?

    From past experience I would probably seriously start looking around May 1
    (bout 90 days out)
