To Drive Or Not To Drive...That Is The Question

So, the debate in the Marsh household lately is whether or not we should drive or fly to 70.3 Worlds in November. I would like to fly because well...it's faster and Brandon would like to drive (I have know idea why). It's about an 18 hour drive to Clearwater Beach, Florida and that's a long time to be sitting in a car before a race.

The Pros of Driving
- Saves money
- Stock the car up with as much food as we want
- Take as many wheel sets as we want
- No rental car
- No packing bike

The Cons of Driving
- 18 hours in a car together (that should count as 2 or 3!)
- Gas money
- Extra hotel on the way there and on the way back
- Missing more days of work because of the long drive
- Being cramped in a car for 2 days

The Pros of Flying
- Faster
- Faster
- Faster

The Cons of Flying
- More expensive
- Pack and unpack bikes 2x
- Pay extra bike fee

We should probably decide soon since it's only about 6 or so weeks away. It looks like Brandon is winning the debate so far. He usually seems to win these...but I ALWAYS win the race to get ready to go!

My take. You should drive b/c then you could take my bike too. :) But in all reality..I LOVE to drive to races but I think that distance may be a bit long and tiring on the old body..I'd say Amy you win this one..ya'll should fly. I got my tix for about $265..not bad at all!
