I'm certainly happy to see a contract.  But this does appear
to be a high cost alternative.  A quick estimate is double
the lodging cost.  That pretty well eliminates any possibility
of me having a car in Pasadena.  The hotel says the bus
only serves within two miles of the hotel, but I suppose
if that covers JPL, that's close enough.

And we do have the meeting in Japan in November, directly following
the August meeting.  Without trying to guess the final lodging costs
there, the airfare is likely a killer.
