    While I won't be attending, I will be helping out the community. On Thursday of USITT, I will instead be teaching workshops at the NV State Thespian Convention. The next day I will be helping out a performance at a local HS. So, it all works out in the end.

    ... and you don't have to deal with getting a flight to Cincinnati.

    I am driving from Chicago Thursday morning early and returning Sunday - probably leave Cincinatti around 9:00 ish - if a ride would help anyone.

    Thanks, but I get to spend a couple hours in the Salt Lake airport on the way out and the Minneapolis airport on the way back. There are no direct flights from Seattle.

    @JChenault where are you flying through?

    Too late to mention this now, but perhaps useful for the future...

    CVG (Greater Cincinnati Airport is actually in Hebron, KY) is almost as far from downtown as DAY (Dayton, OH), which has less expensive flights and is a better airport. If renting a car anyway, what's the diff.?

    CVG is about 12.5 miles from Duke Energy Convention Center, about 15 minutes. DAY is about 65 miles from DECC, about 1 hour, 10 minutes. I'm confused as to what you mean.

    Not that it really matters to me, since I'll be driving the 3:15 from Fort Wayne.

    You got me; I didn't look it up. I have friends whose parents live on the north side of Cincy and thus DAY works better for them.

    I've found - pre 911 - the time from CVG landing to downtown Cincinnati is usually over a half hour, and - being a Southwest fanatic - the time from landing in Louisville to be just 90 minutes - so an hour of extra driving (through nice country) and to usually save $500 or more. I think you'll find that time form scheduled touch down to rental car in CVG is substantially greater than the same at DAY as well. Post 911 I usually just drive if it's less than 5 hours. The fares to and from CVG are just murderous. I can usually fly from Chicago to London or Paris for less than to CVG, and certainly to NY or CA or TX for a lot less.

    I understand what you are saying. I only fly out of FWA for business. Just too expensive otherwise. Better to drive to Indy or South Bend and fly from there.

    I looked at flights through Dayton, but from Seattle I wouldn't save much money and would have had a much longer day both in air time and layover time.

    Ouch: Cincinnati > DC >Atlanta > Seattle....

    Seattle - Dayton via Denver on Southwest doesn't look bad other than early departure. Just a thought since most other web sites don't list SWA.

    While in Cincinnati tune your rental car radio to twenty year old WMKV 89.3 LPFM. Bing, Rosemary, Frank, OTR and great local personalities.
