    Oh jesus. Whatever you do, don't do that. The music won't even be over until 12:30am, you might not get out of the parking lot until 2am, and then if you drive straight to LAX you'll still barely make your flight.

    Frontier has something very similar leaving around 10:30am and putting you in MSP around 545pm. Layover in Denver. Frontier is a good regional carrier as well (owned by Alaska Air)
    Layovers in Denver are the worst thing. Seems like it commonly ends up being "staying overnight in Denver"

    I can think of at least two worse things:

    - layovers at O'Hare
    - layovers in Newark

    thanks everyone for your help. Was looking at a Sun Country flight leaving LAX at 9.50, direct flight also. So what are Sun Country like?

    Direct flight is your best bet. Don't know much about Sun Country though.

    4 weeks until I'm in D.C.!! I'm pretty happy that this trip is costing me so little. $237 for the round trip airfare, no need for a hotel or rental car since I'm staying with a friend and just about all the touristy stuff is free. I figure that this trip will cost a whopping total of $500 when it's all said and done - mostly on food and drinks. I do need to take a trip over to Philadelphia while I'm there, but since my friend also has to visit there for similar reasons I'll just need to help out with gas and keep her company on the 3 hour drive.

    best of all, it's an excuse to go back to The Continental for food and drinks again, I'll take it!

    2 weeks in spain and 1 week in Morocco, something like that. Kinda just going to go with how I feel in a place. But if you know of any must see's or do's or even where's a good place to chill that'd be great!

    Go everywhere in Spain then. Search this thread for names of popular cities in Spain and you'll get a lot of good info. At a minimum, Sevilla, Madrid, Malaga, Barcelona, and San Sebastian. Once you get a draft route down, come back to ask specifics in particular cities / areas.

    Ronda, in Andalucia, is one of my favorite places on the entire planet.

    For a bigger city, I like Sevilla a lot. And Madrid, if only for the museums. Go see Guernica and see how El Greco went mad.

    Barcelona is a must too of course but you already know that. Gaudi. seafood. topless beaches.

    The Coachella flu is something many suffer after a weekend in the desert. The partying mixed with lack of sleep and nasty desert dust can destroy your body, leaving you with flu like aches, lung issues, fever, etc.

    There is a thread here somewhere with stories from sufferers. Be sure to hydrate, take emergen-c or something similar, saline for the nasal passages, bring a bandana or dust mask, and get some rest at night to lower your chances. Would suck to have an amazing vacation planned like that only to spend it wishing you were dead.

    Only the one overseas trip on the cards for 2013. Deciding between a grueling 16 day trek in Nepal finishing at base camp or a more leisurely trip around Vietnam.
