The Cost to Travel

I'm looking at prices for a flight to North Carolina in June. The airfares seem reasonable; it also looks like I am doing my bit to put a dent in the volcanic debt spewing forth from our neighbour to the south.

  1. Looks like this side of the invisible wall has a hand in your pocket too. As Mr. Waits has been heard to say: "... Well, they hit you up at the door on the way out --"
