Travel is from San Francisco, First Class if at all possible. Mr. Flower avoids travel on the day of the talk if at all possible, so that weather delays, dropped flights, and other travel problems do not jeopardize the talk. For sites on the West Coast or in the Mountain States, Mr. Flower will arrive one day before the talk, and will need a minimum of one night’s hotel stay. For sites east of (approximately) Denver, Mr. Flower will arrive two days before the talk, and will need a minimum of two nights’ stay. Because Mr. Flower’s schedule is complex and changeable, our office typically arranges the travel. Travel arrangements are typically made no more than 30 days before the date of the talk.
