Re: PC: Gas Prices and Conventions

I'm not going to let the higher gas prices screw up my travel plans either. 
I only take 2 trips a year, so to me, it's not that big of a deal. Besides, 
Cleveland isn't that far from me. But, next year, I'm taking the train out 
to Denver. It's been awhile since I've taken Amtrak, and wouldn't mind the 
layover in Chicago :)
