Driving is looking better every day. My old fly versus drive decision point used to be drive > 4 hours. Now it is more like drive > 8 hours. I chose to drive Atlanta to Chicago versus fly last Christmas and actually enjoyed it.
Hell, I drive from Portland to SF. In winter. Preferable to annoying airport experiences. I arrive emotionally refreshed rather than frazzled and grumpy.
(Now if the 55mph limit were still in force, it might be a different story.)
