Fun fact: waterofthemoon and I found out just a few hours ago that it would be cheaper by $100-$200 for her to take the Greyhound from Dallas to Phoenix, hop a plane (or two) from here to Boston, fly back here and then Greyhound it back to Dallas. Rosenbaum, Julia, etc, is y'all are tight for money and/or loose on time you guys should think about that.
No, tickets have been bought yet--even if we had the money we aren't that dumb--this is so we know what flights/airlines/planes/times we're aiming for and about how much we need to save. I check for the two leading weekends in the poll--the last option of August and the last option of October. We plan on flying in on Thursday and out on Tuesday because that saves us money and gives us more time to fuck around Boston with people.
