Traveling with other teachers

I have a dilemma. We have a conference 12 hours from where I leave. We don't have funding so we have to pay some if the costs. My school is mostly flying, but that's an additional cost. My husbands school is driving. I would be stuck in a van with teachers I don't know. My husband is driving, so might get stuck in the back alone. I feel like I'm over thinking this and a ting silly. I'm try thinking of staying home. I truly feel uncomfortable around those other women. Two which had a crush on my husband.

What do you guys think? Flying cost more but it's still an option. I just hate flying with out my husband.

If your husband is driving, I would just take dips on the front seat so that you are near him. Maybe you and your husband could take turns driving.

12 hours in a van full of teachers? Personally, I wouldn't go.

My husband and I would either drive separately, with a couple of friends we know from work, or fly together.

I've spent longer than that in buses with no one I know.

I'd do it. Bring a book and mp3 with headphones.

Sometimes I'd rather be in a van with strangers than with people I know. Take some headphones and go on the van.

I can't stand to be in a car more than 4 hours, so I'd say flying. Choose what works best for you and makes you the most comfortable when you've weighed all the options. Don't forget the music, Nook, and headphones whatever you choose!
