RE: My first big audio show

For me, at about 100 miles Each Way, I'm looking at 2 hours each way, traveling at some ridiculous times. I'm closest of all SD residents.
With real conditions? I'm certain that 6 to 7 hours realistic would be more like it. I worked in El Segundo many years ago and would go to work on Monday to arrive by 0730 and stay until Friday and start home about 1430 or so. Miss your 'window' and spend an extra hour on the road. OOOPS! It was easy driving to work from the hotel about 5 miles each way. I was right next to the Matel Corporate Store. HOT WHEELS!
I gave myself 3+ hours TO work and about the same on return.
The 5 / 405 split is EPIC. Even at 0530 on a Monday.

I briefly considering FLYING up from Carlsbad to LAX. I did that 20 years ago to catch a flight to Europe. Now? No commercial makes that short hop. But OH! the time saving. Get dropped off at the airport and an hour later, hop out of the plane @LAX. Turbo Prop is like that! Hotel Shuttle from airport to show.
I EVEN considered taking the TRAIN. Public Bus from Union Station to the hotel. Or even hop off the train in Anaheim and take the shuttle from Disneyland to LAX than the hotel shuttle. I could hardly imagine unwinding THAT trip later that night. I'm too old to Sleep in a Train Station!

I went to the Getty Center years ago with my Neice. We took my S-2000. I figured I was only 2 turns away from outrunning ANYTHING else on the road. Nearly. Joke on ME. On the 405 NORTH of the Airport? Traffic was UnImaginable. Took forever go get home. Location was even north of Brentwood.
Too much is never enough
