of going to a rally with rural American types is a
What's it worth NOT to tell Jeni.... :-))
We've been to the 'States before and found the people very warm and friendly, and the Brits get special treatment, especially since 911 and the 2nd Gulf War. We are over again next April for the Tulare show in California.
We are bringing back a load of stuff, Tandberg reel-to reel tape recorder, load of Wedgwood china (Rita's) and some other stuff, so our baggage allowance will probably take a pasting. On Virgin we had 73kg each baggage, and are hoping it's the same on Northwest.
Fares are pretty cheap now, we only paid £280 each for California IIRC, so it's worth thinking about it. Motels are pretty cheap, about $50 a night and cars aren't a luxury, you need to have wheels.
If you have nice friends who can put you up and provide transport then it gets even better ....
