    Default San Antonio to get to SXSW?

    Is flying in and out of San Antonio a clusterfuck for Flatstock? I don't like the remaining fligh options on United into Austin so looking at last minute options or backups

    It's a small airport and generally easy to get through quickly, but I'm not sure about SXSW...

    Rene, are you driving? It's about an hour south of Austin. Just a straight shot on IH 35. Not bad at all...don't know how it'll be during spring break though, maybe add 15 minutes to your drive. I like flying out of SA because it's almost always $100 cheaper than Austin. I say do it...but only if you have a ride or are getting a car. If you're walking, fly into Austin.

    I am too old to walk. I'll have a rental. Might come if I can swing the free time out of work and maybe can help a bit at the API booth. The memories!

    if you have a car, it's an easy drive then. a nice drive. should be clear until you hit austin city limits, but then you can just take side streets. or go hide out at the connor compound.

    San Antonio International is traveler friendly and just about an hour drive from airport to downtown Austin. The only downfall to SAIA is you have to shuttle to and from the rental car places, but each company has their own shuttle. They are in the middle of a terminal remodel, but it isn't affecting travel much at all.

    SA is always in the middle of a remodel. That whole town is under remodel. Sigh.

    Yeah, Rene, you're welcome to stop by our house, we're on the southside of Austin. Jared will make some ribs for you.

    When are you due to come to Texas?

    what syd said. I hate the SA airport just b/c getting out of there is confusing, but you're a guy and thus, probably good with directions, so I'm sure you'll have no problems.

    The drive is not pretty, by any means, but saving the money is worth it.
