When I went to the photography seminar given by Larry Winslett, he told us about a seminar he’s conducting in Taos, New Mexico, in June of next year. I’d read a blog post about Great Sand Dunes National Park at Lisa’s Chaos a few months ago, so when Larry told us the trip would include a day there I started to drool. Almost literally.

Information about the trip came out Wednesday. The “tuition” is reasonable, $400 for a week-long seminar. Then I looked up the airfare. From Atlanta the fare would be about $550.

So I was thinking, “I should just go visit my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew. It couldn’t be much more expensive.”

The flight to Montana? It’s $850.

I don’t think we can afford either trip, especially adding hotel and at least some spending money to the photography trip. But I want to go. To both.


Do you think I could get away with leaving Ed at home and do the photography trip? If it’s just one of us going, it will be a relative bargain! 😉

    That does sound like a great price and loads of fun! Maybe you could sneak away and he just wouldn’t miss you for a few days? I hope you get to go! Fingers crossed!

    Don’t they say that ‘Absence makes the heart grow fonder’? Is that NOT what they say? On the other hand, just who are ‘THEY’ anyway? And is that a philosophical question? Or just rhetorical? And what the heck am I rambling on about? Coffee. I need coffee. I’ll see ya’ later. Gotta go find me some Joe.
