    looks like the Yellow Cab services that area

    cant find local rates... but based on their rates for Denver it looks like it will be about $20 or so each way

    i would plan $50-60 for the round trip.... but i recommend carrying more than that for incidentals and such

    im not sure why you wouldnt want to bring your card(s) with you... especially when traveling
    if i was traveling and for some reason was not bringing my card(s) i would want to have at least $500 cash in small bills split up into groups of $50 or so


    according to Murphy's Law if you do not bring your card and do not have access to your money, you are going to run out and need more... then you'll be ass'ed out waiting for someone to wire you via western union..... or you are going to have to get a job under the table at some restaurant washing dishes for below minimum wage while you save your pennies.... or perhaps you could find a truck stop and turn tricks...

    :shrug:



    good luck

    I'd listen to E, he's had to turn tricks a few times to make it back home. He knows what he's talking about.

    Long live party row and lot lizards!!!!

    on a more serious note just take the card. It's an extra 5 grams on you. Seriously I looked it up. It's 5 grams

    Ya, never travel without plastic. It is way more secure and if it gets stolen, you can call and cancel it.

    You can't call the cash company to cancel your cash.
