You Texans always have an interesting view of where
the "Southwest" is.
Hint: if there's more than two states (or 1,000 miles) between you and the
Pacific Ocean west of you, you aren't in the Southwest.
You can drive west all day in Texas, and still be in Texas.
The ideal place for a VCF Southwest would probably be
in Phoenix AZ.
That's almost dead center of the "real" Southwest: Not far from Los
Angeles, San Diego, and Las Vegas, and plenty of cheap flights from
It is sometimes possible to get some exceptional deals on hotels, meeting
rooms, etc. in Vegas.
Santa Fe typifies the southwest. It is a hassle to get there by public
transportation, but it's worth it for the food.
So, is the goal "Southwest" or is the goal "Texas"?
