We are looking at travel arrangements. I was hoping to send DD solo like SLCDA and USMMA this spring, and SLE travel. At first we tried to find flights that arrive with ample time to catch the Academy transportation from PVD or BDL. But from where DD flies from, connections and arrival times are less than ideal - they are either so tight that I question if she would even make the 2nd leg, or the the arrival is after the stated 2pm cut off at PVD or BDL. Not to mention the many cancellations that seem customary now. So now it opens up alternate plans, and I might just go and drop her off! We can do NYC 07/20 and then drive up the next day. On the back end, it looks like a day of programming for the parent, so we don't want to miss an opportunity if they have something substantial for the parent! 9-3pm parent schedule on 07/26. DH will have to fly up on this part since I can't miss work. But again, he'd have to fly up the night before and stay overnight. Any advice or thoughts on this plan? I feel like i'm missing something, because all the other SA trips she's taken have been so much easier transportation-wise. Perhaps it's just that the others were near much more major airports for us, and had ample early arrival flights.
