I’ve made plans to attend the International DX Convention in Visalia, California next April. I’ve wanted to attend for ages, but work always impeded those plans. I did make a virtual visit one year during the pandemic, but I relish the opportunity to attend in real life as the kids say.

Arrangements for the convention and the hotel have been booked, but I’ve not yet nailed down the travel. Flights from Indianapolis to Fresno, California are all-day affairs with stops in multiple cities along with crazy expensive airfares.

On the other hand, cheap flights to Las Vegas are plentiful and it’s only a five-hour drive across Death Valley from Vegas to Visalia. It would extend my stay by an additional day, but being retired I have more time than money. My only worry with going that route is the relative certainty that two hours into the journey by automobile I’ll start kicking myself for not having flown all the way to California.

The problem with life is that it’s short and filled with far too many decisions…
