Well, geek I am not, however it is the only ad blocker I run, so it must be what is keeping their surveys off my screen. I use Firefox, Norton security, CrapCleaner and AdBlock plus. Not really sure what it is but I have no side banner ads, no surveys and no pop-ups. I delete browsing history often and change up my passwords frequently. I have 2 cards I use, one business and one personal. I use the personal, which I deposit a set amount in every two weeks to pay bills, to make other purchases such as tickets and hotel rooms. I also shred everything with my name on it.
Not sure if it's the right way, but it has worked for me so far.
AdBlock plus. I have never had to answer anything.
I work in healthcare...I pay over $700 a month for a crap policy that does not pay for anything, which went UP $75 since the introduction of the AHA. I am healthy and have no issues, I think it would be easier to take just the $95 penalty and go with it.
Meanwhile I am driving to SLC three times for flights this summer and DIA twice. I don't own a business that pays my airfare, so for us "just locals" the bottom line remains the cost, I have heard nothing to justify it.
Well, I am not blind and when I see the cost of a flight to DIA costing $471 it makes me wonder where their figures come from.
I don't really like to fly, prefer driving and so I don't know why I am getting all riled up and crying about it, as i was accused of in a different thread. I have driven from the middle of nowhere to anywhere I wanted to go, and will continue to do so. Until the cost comes down, significantly, it appears 85% of the residents of this valley will continue to drive to Denver to destinations elsewhere by air travel.
Would like to know where these low figures of $48 one way and $98 round trip are coming from. If that was the price, I would not be complaining, but it is not. I checked yesterday and a round trip to DIA from HDN on United was $471. Please tell me where I can get a $98 ticket and I won't drive to Denver ever again.
Cost, cost, cost, the driving point of this whole thing.
Are we going to get that technical? OK, $70 for the trip instead of $60. Still does not make it sensible to fly 140 miles for $471 dollars.
I have to agree with you Mr. Wedel.
Personal trip in January, three people went but I will break it down for one person:
Fuel: one tank for up and back, $60
Food and snacks, $25
Round trip airfare to PDX(Portland Oregon), $160 per person on Frontier.
Parking in the very efficient Pikes Peak lot, $8 a day for 6 days=$48.
Just looked up the cost for a flight from HDN to DIA for an upcoming trip this March, round trip=$471, just for the flight, add in the 6 days parking and you are well over $500. My method blows that clean out of the water.
Am very interested in a sensible explanation, which I don't think there is one, other than pure greed of course.
Four hours my time, free. Tank of gas, $60, parking at $8 per day in the Pikes Peak lot X's 6 days (the average of my trips so far), $48=$108. Driving 20 minutes instead of 4 hours would be well worth it and I would be one local that would never drive to DIA again.
