Getting the Family Together

I’m flying to Omaha on Friday afternoon, then driving north towards Sioux City. From there I’ll head east to Le Mars, and check in to a hotel. I’m pretty sure this is the first time that I’ve taken care of all my travel plans for a family get together in Iowa by myself.

Normally I would fly to Des Moines and get picked up by one of my parents. I’d ride with them to the get together and stay in a hotel room that they had reserved.

This time I booked a cheap flight to Omaha, reserved a car at the Omaha airport, and booked two nights at the hotel by myself. For a normal trip this is nothing new, especially a work trip, but for a family trip this is fairly new.

I’m using Kayak to manage my travel plans. It’s great.
