Subject: Re: Packing food for trip

A few years ago when our children were younger, our wives and children would meet us in Vail for skiing during the US February vacation week. We would come in from somewhere else and they would come into Denver via a commercial flight. We soon discovered that it was cheaper to rent a van to drive the crew up to Vail. We always made it a condition of the rental that the van driver was at our disposal and it was not a simple point-to-point transfer. That said, they would stop by a King Super (or something similar) and load the van with foodstuffs and potables at a much cheaper price than they could get in Vail. We always calculated the van (or the limo) and the food to be cheaper than the alternatives.
