AAA Auto Club says the number of people who are projected to travel during the Thanksgiving holiday nationwide will be slightly lower than last year; and in the AAA Mountain West region – including Wyoming and Idaho – that volume will be down slightly as well.  However, the Auto Club says the economy in the Mountain Region continues to recover at a faster pace than the rest of the nation and so the association says its survey finds that 3.2 million people who live in the Mountain West region are expected to travel at least 50 miles from home. That’s down 0.08 percent from last year.  When will the busiest days for travel around the nation?  AAA Chief Operating Officer Marshall Doney says “Thanksgiving will be the single biggest travel day and we are expecting more than forty- three million people to hit the roads, travel the skies and railways.”  Doney adds Wednesday will be the second busiest; while the busiest day for people returning will be Sunday. Ninety percent of the nation’s traveling public he says will go by car and 3.1 percent will fly.  Spending is also expected to be curtailed by about $33 from last year according to the auto club.

  • Shouldn’t my dogs be KEEPING their hair now? - November 21, 2014
    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her.
