Back in the day, forget more than once; how about more than twice!
I remember a legendary trip which found a large group of us at Millrose on Friday night around 1980, flying to Montréal on Saturday morning (w/ Jean Beliveau on the plane!), riding a bus to Ottawa for meet there on Saturday night, then Sunday morning bus back to Montréal for a meet in Montréal on Sunday afternoon (at which the Walker/Bayi "rematch" finally happened 5-6 years too late).
Nobody thought much about it.
I do remember when we got to the stadium in Montréal on Sunday afternoon it was -17F (c-30C).
