    I've seen it done both ways. I'm all about flying though.

    Flying in to Palm Springs is kinda pricey because it's a small local airport....Ontario is better to fly into, but either way, you're going to have to rent a car. It'll be cheaper to just drive if you can. Then you don't have the hassle of returning your rental car and sitting in the airport with everyone else on Monday morning.

    I flew to LA, met with some people and we rented a car. Good deal.

    From California, went to school in Texas. I would always take the 40 when I went home/back to school. Its a nice drive, not a lot of traffic, but if you're in the Eastern part of the state, count on taking two full days driving to get there. I think it really depends on whether you enjoy road trips or not and also whether you have a friend/s to switch off driving with.

    Ignore the ***holes bashing Texas. Unfortunately, there are more than a fair share of bad apples living in California. I really miss going to ACL for the simple reason of how nice the people are there.

    Do Texans consider Houston a part of Texas? Because that's the biggest shit hole I've ever been to and deserves every negative comment it receives.

    Houston I've heard it a nasty place, but West Texas is dope.

    Texas is so massive that you need to state where you'd be flying out of or where you'd begin your trip by drive.
