More, the illness of a child dictates a trip from our winter home in Florida to Ohio once a month when normally we would only do that trip once or twice in six months over the winter.

My family is big so we rotate as to whose home we get together, this year we are the hosts. No driving this year, but when we do drive we combine to use less vehicles.

Well, it looks like I'm getting snookered into traveling this Thanksgiving after all. Can I change my answer to "About the same as last year"? ;)

Less than last year. I made 2 trips last year in the winter time and got sick on both trips. I decided no more winter trips now.

About the same as last year. Personally, I would rather not visit for the holidays.

To be fair, I did look at taking a train. It would require me driving 40 miles in the opposite direction, catch a train that only leaves once a day, travel to Chicago, then back down to Alabama. Or maybe it was down to New Orleans then to Alabama. Either way it would take a dang week and cost a fortune.

And since the airports are 100 miles away in oppopsite directions, it's easier to just drive the 4 hours.
