    Can I also take a minute to be sad that Southwest bought Airtran? AT is just as inexpensive, plus I like their service much better. And Southwest has the buttugliest color scheme ever on their jets!
    I suppose I had better use my couple of free AT trips I've built up before they are erased due to the takeover; where can I go that it won't be too hot or unsafe to camp out in a car? i'm really broke. Fortunately I don't have to eat much at all any more

    The last few years, I have flown Alligient from Greenville to Florida. The flights are cheap (I flew round trip for $50). It's a one hour flight. I figure I don't need to eat or drink in that one hour, stuff that is mostly crap anyway.
    They charge extra to check baggage, for a seat assignment, priority boarding and express boarding. If I did all that, the $50 round trip turns into $200. For a one hour flight, I don't need to get on first, check a bag, have an assigned seat or anything else.


    And yes, SW colors scheme is horrible.

    Pisgah forest in NC has rough camping spots and it's not hot at all up there right now. It's about 45 min. from Greenville, so about a 2-3 hour drive for you?

    Is anyone a member of Angie's List? I'm thinking about joining, and I'm looking for opinions. I never realized that it was a membership-thing, but it seems like it would be worth it.

    I checked it out a few times, thought of joining, and am very glad I did not. All they ever have is those contractors I would never use. For me, it was a waste.

    I got the impression that it is like an epinions.com for your area services...like repairmen, electricians, etc. Am I mistaken?

    Yes, it is basically like most stuff on the Internet. People post opinions.
    I found that it contained very few reviews on services that I was interested in. And, the reviews I foud didn't look overly credible.

    Yelp and Citysearch have free reviews of local businesses including the kind mentioned.

    I have mentioned in the past the Italian Astronaut Paulo, that I'm following on twitter. He has been in space since Dec/2010 for a 6month mission, and is expected to return the end of this month. He has been twittering from space, and has been providing awesome pictures of earth.

    This is just unbelievable!!
