Drive or fly for Christmas?
 
<!--break-->It's a 10 hour trip driving.
<!--break-->If I drive I have to go through mountains for about 3 hours of the trip no matter which route I take.
<!--break-->Driving would be slightly cheaper, although I need to renew my tag and get my car checked out, which might make it about the same cost.
<!--break-->I'm wondering about taking presents on a plane, not so much on the way, but on the way back.
<!--break-->If I fly I can't leave until the morning of Christmas Eve without paying a lot more for a flight.
<!--break-->It would be about a 3 hour flight total with one flight change.

I'd drive. 10 hours isn't that long for a car trip.

Will you be driving alone? If so, then I'd say fly. If you have someone else with you in the car then I'd say drive. There's less chance for presents getting lost, delays etc. this time of year. I've only had two bad experiences flying and they were both near Christmas.

Yes, I will be alone. However, I've made this trip several times alone before.

Drive
 
I'm thinking about the airport crowds and drama you may find there.

I'd probably fly, if I was alone. Especially if came out to be about the same price, anyway. Less wear and tear on the car.

If the mountain drive could be hazardous (snow, ice, little traffic) I guess I would fly. But IMO I would rather drive, even though that would be a very long one for me. You can stop when you want and don't have all the hassles and expense of airports and planes.

I think the same way as TammyNJ.

I'd fly. 20 hours of driving as opposed to 6 hours of flying? No contest.

I think I would rather fly. You never know the weather during the winter. Not sure where you live but the West is suppose to have snow all this week. and you want to have a car in good shape.
you can always have your presents mailed to your house.
