    What type of time travel can I expect from leaving a hotel near the Colorado Springs Airport on Friday morning. I need to be at the cadet airport 6 AM. After some time I'll be traveling back to the Hotel to pick up the family to arrive at the fields house at 9:15am. What kind of time can I expect at those two different times.

    The drive at 0600 should be about 20 minutes via Hwy 24 to Hwy 25 North. 25 minutes if you take Powers or Academy Blvd through town. At 0900 the drive to the Academy gates will be the same, but you can figure another 30-60 minutes to get to the fieldhouse with all the traffic. You probably will not find any parking anywhere near the fieldhouse by that time, though. I would suggest bringing everyone at 0600.
