Thankfully, I won't have to spend any money on accomodations while in chicago and that should save me at least $240 or so. As long as I can priceline a good deal for the remaining items, I should be good to go.
This is the first year where I've decided to pop down to Indy a day earlier than normal. Getting down there on Tuesday sounds good, but it's also adding on layers of extra expense. The plane ticket and one night of hotel rental weighed against a head start to gencon and the ability to settle in ahead of time. Really, the only difference will be my ability to get involved with the pre-gencon gaming. I'm still trying to decide if that's worth the extra cash.
