I leave SA at 8:30 am (yes, I got to pick the departure time) on 9/6 and fly to Denver. I'll arrive about 11 am local time. Then I'll get a rental car and drive to Vail. (Stopping at Idaho Springs, Keystone, Dillon and Frisco to visit some brewpubs before stopping in Vail.) The boss is flying in on Sunday, and I get to pick them up at the Denver airport (woohoo) and take them back to Vail. Then Sunday Monday and Tuesday I'll be on foot. Hope I can find a bar in Vail. Then back to Denver on 9/12 for the flight home.
Last time I was in the air around this time, the Twin Towers fell. Keep your fingers crossed.
