Dulles is a bit of a hassle with the distance from the ticket area to the gates but it's generally not a bad airport.

If you don't know your way around, you can see National but it can be difficult to find it. Once there, it's a very easy airport to negotiate, especially the old terminal.

Yeah were out of national. I think we are doing a hotel in crystal city and parking at the airport so there is no need for a ride to our car back at the hotel.

It's definitely easier to park at the Airport but cheaper at the hotels.

We didn't find it cheaper to park at the hotels. I will look again to make sure.

Check Marriott.

Its $26 a day at Marriott. I see $14 a day at the airport. Maybe I'm not looking at the right spot.

You're probably right. Marriott beats the Dulles Parking price.

We usually get a shuttle from the house when we fly from National.

Let me know when you're in town. We know some good restaurants in Crystal City and my wife is one of the Disney Mom bloggers. I don't know if she's related to Tim or not.

I'm going to New Orleans on Friday. Got a $47 roundtrip fare on Delta the day after Christmas. 5:35 a.m. flight time is only downside.

here's a funny little travel related story.

I'm going to myrtle in April for a golf outing. Since we're driving down a day early we figured maybe we'll stop at a town along the way in South Carolina where there's a brewery, have some good beers spend the night there and then finish the drive the next day.

One of the options was Florence SC, since it's not far from our destination, close to the travel route and has a brewery. So while in the planning stage I figure I'll see if there's hotels nearby and there is... a bunch of them. I do a quick check and the first 3 hotels are sold out. That's strange. I try hotwire and it suggests I try another area. I finally find a room via booking.com and it's at the HoJo. It's a king bed smoking room for $250. WTF? After a little searching I discovered that the trip overlaps with a NASCAR race at Darlington Raceway in Florence SC. nice.

We decided to scratch Florence off of our list of options.

I had three choices for tomorrow; 6:30am, 8:00am and 12:55pm. I chose 12:55pm. I still get my layover in lovely Atlanta. I've been there way too much these past couple of months.

I'm hanging out at the Outback in St. Clairsville, Ohio. The dining options here are less than ideal.

Flying Delta for the first time in quite awhile tomorrow. It supposed to be done snowing two hours plus before takeoff. Are they generally pretty good about times/delays?

I don't think the airlines have much to do with it when weather is involved. I think it has more to do with air traffic control and the airport's ability to get the runways clear.
