I just got in from Newark and BOY are my arms tired!

You might have to drive down to Baltimore to get a cheaper flight.

I think Jason used Hotwire or something like that when he came to see me. It was apparently alot cheaper than the other services out there.

I always look for schedules on travelocity sites, then go to the airlines directly. Given that they run so many specials it's not always the best idea to book way-early.

What's in SFO?

Prices aren't that bad - I usually use Expedia to find out what airlines are going where (and sometimes they even have cheaper fares). Continental has non-stops for 241 (a bit cheaper if you want to go at a totally insane hour!). Book with Continental and save $5. From BWI you'll most likely not get a cheap non-stop flight. You planning to visit your bro? Taking the family? Should I find out if my bro has a gig?

Nothing so far that far off. I sent him an email the other day asking if he's got anything scheduled while I'm out west. Haven't heard back from him yet.

First climb on top of a really large tower.

Next, talk to a moth.

After that, be threatened by an evil wizard.

Then, jump off the tower, managing to fall onto the back of the giant eagle flying by, and tell him to take you to San Francisco.

Hey, this always works for me.

Haven't you heard of ITA Software? It's the same engine that runs Orbitz, but without some of Orbitz's funkiness that makes finding low fares more difficult. Searching on ITA, I found tons of Continental flights, none more expensive than $276 roundtrip. You can even see the cheapest flights by combinations of departure and arrival time. You then go directly to Continental's site to book, or send the flight numbers to your travel agent.

cool...the $276 fare is what I have a reservation for already. I'll book it today unless my travel agent says she thinks she can find something better.
