OK, deep breath, make some calls, make some arrangements, put things on a 5pm hold with the travel agency for the ONE flight I can find in the "reasonable" range (*read in here less than $800 a body). who's idea WAS this trip anyway?

I find the solution after a call to Butch regarding the ppredicament I find myself in. Turns out he has sky miles enough to get HIM there... but no-one else.

The killer part of all this? Our flights SUCK. We leave here at 4pm and arrive at 11:30pm in Anchorage... then have to drive a few hours to go south. The way home? Oh, yeah, even more pleasant - we leave at 4pm and get home NEXT day at 7:30am. Sucky. However we should have a long flight from Seattle to Atlanta to get some sleep on the plane. We're going to be miserable when we get home... should have booked in December when I knew for sure what our dates were.. would have been ahead of the game. Ah, well, hind sight on this trip planning is 20/20 in the rear view. Let's pray the rest goes well.
