    I was curious if you guys could help me out.

    I need to be in Vegas on the 14th, and as cheaply as possible.

    Can you guys help me out?

    Thank you!

    Check out Megabus too. Not sure if that is a route they travel but its worth a shot.

    Rent a chainsaw and hitchhike. Evidently people will pick you up. Simply dismember them and steal their money.

    Drive. It's only 5 hours. Probably only 1 tank of gas each way too.

    In the trunk of a Cadillac, only works though if you owe the mob some money.

    And that only gets you half way into the desert. :eek:

    Get in with the youth hostel, and see it you can hitch a ride with someone, by paying half the gas.

    So flying would be 225ish on Southwest. That's ridiculous in my opinion.

    Greyhound would be 90ish, but seems pretty unsafe.

    Would you guys personally fly(1 hour) or bus(9 hours)?

    Thanks!

    Personally, I would drive.

    In this case I can't justify the cost of a plane ticket when I could drive there and back on a little less than two tanks of gas that would only cost me about $90 bucks.

    Flying would be my second choice. I wouldn't take a bus at all.

    Greyhound.com is telling me its $44. Nothing to lose but some stubborn pride (and maybe some misconceptions).

    Does Southwest fly out of AZ? If so hop on one of the 'fun saver fares'; they are like $49 bucks each way! :D
