Your flight from DFW sounds about right. I've booked for June 2006 from Austin to Anchorage on United and it was a little more than that. For the return trip, we dock at Vancouver, but are flying out of Seattle due to cost. One-way from Seattle to Austin was $128 on Delta. From Vancouver to Seattle, Holland America offers a shuttle for $50 each. I also used Sidestep to find my flights. All flights are through Orbitz. Hope this helps.
