Ground control to Major Tom

Well, I just booked the flights. Everything will cost me a combined total of around $310 after taxes and everything. I could have flown a bit cheaper but it involved stops and inconvienant airports and the like. The really sad thing is that the expenses don't stop there. I'll need to book a hotel room for one night in Indy and I'll need a rental car for when I'm in chicago. Actually, it's not _certain_ I'll need a rental car, but I'm thinking it might be one of those better safe than sorry deals. If only I could get people to decide ahead of time on an itinerary so I would know if and when I would actually need a's like pulling teeth though. All I know for sure is that there will be the traditional visit to the Bristol Renn Faire and that's about it.

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.
