Holiday travel may be bumpy

Scott McCartney, WSJ, Oct 24, 2013, says prices of airfare for the hols are going up. Act now.

In past years, airlines had last-minute bargains, but now the planes are filling up and such deals have gone a'glimmering.

Heading for warmer climes--like the Caribbean? Bring your wallet! Instead of going to Grandmas, the story said, more people are going to the beach and bringing Grandma along.

Christmas is mid-week, so the travel window is longer--which is good news.

The best professional advice--don't wait, prices probably won't be going down.

I remember one Christmas, stuck in O'Hare with almost no money and a whiny kid, then hitting DC at 4 AM in a blizzard, all our presents fell into an icy lake of water...ah, good times.
