And some parents will also be spending more money with these strange regions as it appears no one consulted a map.....
Cost is not that far apart. Hiking across the US is pricey and from florida to can be in Central America before Texas. I can get lots places before California.
Travel from some areas are much cheaper to Central America than middle america. Many deals exists where a trip to Austin is full fare.
Several parents of teens tell me avoid the USTA path, comparable cost with a better chance of overall success.
