My airfare goes up almost $300, and my five-hour, one-connection flight becomes a 36-hour, three-connection flight. I can’t imagine that my situation is unique; I would think everyone east of Colorado would be in the same boat.
Anyway, you just took remote, and changed it to remote and expensive to get to. Maybe that was the plan, to keep all the nasty tourons out.
So, no Skinny Tire Festival for me this year; too many other places to ride with a better bang for the buck.
