Tomorrow morning we'll show up at the airport with our standby passes and hope for the best. There are two flights daily; one at 6:30, one at 10:30. If we don't get seats on either of those ~ and Cait reports that it's going to be tight ~ it will be back home to try again on Monday. Or Tuesday. Or . . . If we do get seated, it will be off to Salt Lake where we then have to try to get a seat to Bozeman. There are more flights but the planes are tiny. We've been mulling over other options; take the Greyhound for a 12 hour ride that leaves at 8:15 am which would mean an overnight? Rent a car and drive which takes 8 hours so that would mean an overnight somewhere along the way as we probably wouldn't get away much before noon. But perhaps we'll be lucky and get seats all the way without any problem which puts us in Bozeman before noon tomorrow. Andrew is already there; smart boy actually bought a ticket. We'll hope for the best but prepare for the worst. At any rate, our luggage will be having a fine time in Bozeman no matter where we are. Then we'll have to figure out how to get it back.
