I need to plan and purchase the most complicated flight I've ever planned and purchased before. I am SUPER BROKE and SUPER FLEXIBLE. I'm hoping you can answer a few questions (inside) about how to plan this.

Flight 1: From Kalamazoo Michigan to Wild Horse Island, Montana - any time between August 11th and 14th
Flight 2: From Portland, Oregon back to Kalamazoo, MI - any time between Aug 20th and 23rd.
Additionally, the airport we leave from and arrive at is very variable too - sometimes flights out of DET are much cheaper than out of AZO.
1. What is the process for figuring out the best itinerary? Is there a "best" website? is google.com/flights a good resouce?
2. is this the type of thing one would use a travel agency for, and if so, how can you tell a good one from a bad one - are there things to watch out for?
3. I'd love to hear, off the top of your head, ballpark, (but also please state the reasoning for) estimates of how much you think a reasonable price for these flights would be?
