Well If I go on another two business trips before I have to buy my tickets, I can go on points and just have to buy David's ticket..

Which would be nice.. But would require that I travel more for work, I think I would rather buy the ticket, and not travel for the office.

Hopefully I don't sound like I am whining..
It is definately worth doing the math to see if buying points is worth it. For us, it was worth it to use a combination of points plus buying more for our Nov. WDW trip. We used the points we had, and bought more, and got all 4 RT tickets for $450 total. It was over $300 each RT if we would have bought the tickets, so we are thrilled!

I am glad that they are not there and safe.. Prayers for all those effected.
Glad they are safe!

DEL NORTE, Colo. -- This is what counts as good news in Colorado's wildfire season: a breezy day but at least not three straight hours of winds blowing at 25 mph or more.

Firefighters battling the massive and erratic wildfire in the state's southwestern mountains got a bit of a break Tuesday, with forecasters calling for winds below the threshold for a red flag warning after nearly a week of winds gusting to 50 mph.

Some gusts are still possible in the afternoon, and hot and dry weather should still keep the 124-square-mile fire active.

"We're out of red flag, but I can't say we're a lot better off," incident commander Pete Blume said. "It's not exactly like great fire weather, but I guess we should count our blessings every time the wind drops a little bit."

The fire is 3 to 4 miles from South Fork, Blume said. More than 1,000 residents and summer visitors were evacuated from the town and surrounding areas Friday.

Fire crews have used bulldozers to build lines around South Fork to slow the fire should it get closer, but Blume said protecting the town is still a concern.

Large wildfires are also burning elsewhere in the Southwest.

A wildfire in southern New Mexico's Gila (HEE'-luh) National Forest has grown to 125 square miles and is expected to keep expanding. In Arizona, crews hope to have the 10.5-square-mile Doce Fire near Prescott fully contained soon.

In Colorado, firefighters are hoping for a major change in the weather the arrival of the summer monsoon season and its afternoon thunderstorms to help control the fire. Still, every day the fire is kept at bay near South Fork, the odds of saving the town increases.

Tim Foley, a fire behavior expert working on the blaze, said officials are hoping to begin a more strategic assault on the backcountry blaze.

"We're going from extreme (winds) to very high, basically," Foley said. "So it's not like it's going to be a piece of cake."

The red flag winds have grounded most afternoon flights and have limited where tankers and helicopters can drop retardant and water.

Crews have been able to beat back flames threatening homes and cabins along Highway 149, between South Fork and the historic mining town of Creede.

No structures are known to have been lost from the fire, which has been fed by drought-stricken, beetle-killed trees.

It started June 5 with a lightning strike in a rugged, remote area of the San Juan Mountains, west of the Continental Divide. A second lightning strike sparked a fire east of the divide. The two then joined, making a fast run Thursday and Friday at popular tourist areas, including South Fork and the Wolf Creek Ski Area.

A third lightning strike, meantime, sparked another fire to the west, creating what is now called the West Fork complex, the largest and most intense to ever hit this area, Blume said. That fire was moving north but was about 10 miles from Creede.

About a dozen fires burned elsewhere in Colorado, including a nearly 21-square-mile wildfire near the southern Colorado town of Walsenburg that was 50 percent contained.

Latest Update....

http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news...home-near-fire

SOUTH FORK, Colo. - Residents and visitors are being allowed back in the southwestern Colorado town of South Fork, a week after they were forced out because of a massive wildfire.

The evacuation order was lifted Friday because firefighters feel confident they can defend the summer retreat should the fire again advance toward it. They've dug a wide bulldozer line that they can expand if needed, and they have also been dropping water along U.S. Highway 160 near town all week.

The town relies on tourism so business owners have been anxious to reopen.

The West Fork Fire, one of three wildfires burning on a total of 140 square miles in the area, is within about 3 miles of town.

The fires have been fueled by beetle-killed trees and fanned by hot, windy weather.





So there might be hope after all...

Whew! I can't imagine having to leave my home and not know if I'll ever see it again.

That would be a very hard thing for me, and how do you decide what to take with you, I mean only things you can carry and you just pray that it there when you get back?

We would grab all our kitties, our computers, titles for the vehicles and just pray for the rest!

Our titles and appraisals are in a bank safety deposit box, but for me, I would want to take paintings (originals) and wedding album, jewelry, passports... I am sure I missing something, but if it was quick.... Just us, but if we could plan and pack the vehicles, I would want a lot of stuff.

You're right, very difficult if you had to leave immediately. Pets and people, lets go. If I had 15 minutes I could probably get the jewelry and important paperwork too.

So I just bought my flights out to see my Dad....

The price was awful but he is worth it....

We are flying to ABQ non stop, so at least we will be ok with a short flight.

We have a rental car from ABQ for a week already scheduled..

I also bought my Dad his Birthday Present, a Digital Video Camera.
