Try to contact the airlines and see if they have emergency fares available; the shelter may be able to vouch for the emergency-which the airline will require.

I'd hook you up with a buddy pass but I'm out until the end of the year. Also, many airlines release their last minute fares between midnight Tuesday and midnight Wednesday; try going to airline websites and see if they have any last minute deals.

Does Santa Barbara have flights from Oregon? It sounds like either Burbank or San Jose.

I dunno, SB is a really small airport. It's really hard to find cheap fares into those small regional ports. Best bet on finding a cheap flight is into LAX.

It's not looking good with Southwest. A one way ticket from Tacoma to Burbank is 218.00 and 225.00 to LAX.

What about putting her on a train? Obviously it would take a lot longer but it would get her out of there.

There is no guarantee. I purchased my plane ticket to ATP in April for late September and the total cost with taxes and fees from PHX to Philly was $160. I've also purchased tickets 3-4 weeks out for Chicago recently for $140 which was also an awesome deal. If you don't like the price you are getting right now, you have plenty of time to wait. Come October there might be some great winter deals for December. You just have to keep watching.

Did you actually read the first post of that thread??? seems more of a show and tell rather than people asking for advice on travel fares. I saw that thread, js... didn't mean to alter the board NOT to your specifications.

Zimmy, that thread is used for deals and information as well. Everything from show and tell to advice and tips.

no less tangential:


In April 2007 the Russian government announced that it was considering building a double track broad gauge rail tunnel under the Bering Strait between Chukotka and Alaska. The tunnel, as projected, would be 60 miles (100 km) long and would include oil and gas pipelines, fiber optic cables and power lines.[54] The tunnel project was estimated to cost $65 billion and take 1520 years to build. In addition to the Russian government, sponsors of the project apparently include Transneft and RAO United Energy Systems.[55]

The project, as envisioned, would connect the Trans-Siberian via Komsomolsk-on-Amur/Yakutsk in Siberian Russia with the North American rail network (gauge to be widened) at Fort Nelson, British Columbia, Canada, a distance of 3,700 miles (5,950 km). A significant hurdle for the project is that the nearest major road to the Russian end of the tunnel is 1,000 miles (1,610 km) away. In addition, Alaska has no direct rail link to either Canada or the contiguous United States.[56] Other leaders, including Wally Hickel, the 14th Dalai Lama, Lyndon LaRouche and Sun Myung Moon have also advocated the construction of a tunnel or bridge across the strait.[57]
