Time to book travel

In this budget-busting economy, it's always good to find ways to save. One way right now is to book your travel to Seattle now.

Airlines are desperate for business, and are offereing up some tremendous bargains, most of which extend through March or April. For example, Virgin America is offering flights from SFO to Seattle for around $140, great for anyone heading up from the Bay Area.

Virgin is also one of the few airlines without tons of dishonest fees, such as American, United, U.S. Airways, and others. (Southwest is the best in this category.) I urge folks heading to the conference to choose to do business with companies that are honest with their advertised pricing, that include their CODB (cost of doing business) in their prices, and that don't tyr to nickel and dime (and dollar!) you with added costs once you've made the commitment.

Me, I'm driving up.
