choose my own adventure
The American Sociological Association meetings are next month in Montreal. I was going to book my flight and have noticed that flights are both pricey (even though I'm not paying for it) and that I cannot fly Northwest/Continental/Delta (my preferred carriers). Now I'm thinking about driving instead. A scenic 5 hour drive through Vermont, New Hampshire, and Quebec. Any opinions?
I need to submit a budget for the trip to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and get approval because it is international travel, although I think they would approve the car since even with parking it is likely cheaper (the car itself would be ~$250 + taxes, whereas the plane is ~$400) and of course they would approve the plane since I can't be expected to drive.
