Note: airfare can be very expensive to some locations. To estimate the airfare costs, please look up the rate from my home airport of Las Vegas, Nevada (LAS). I will fly Southwest whenever possible.

  • Travel includes airfare, mileage to/from my airport, baggage fees, shipping quilts and any other non-specified incidentals.
  • I book my own airfare and I choose flights and travel times to accommodate my needs (e.g. no red-eye flights or extremely long layovers). Please note that this may not be cheapest flight, but it will be equivalent to standard coach rates.
