I want to go!
Sure, it'll be boring and pointless this year. It's the first time it's been run, after all. It'll have long, painful hours spent doing nothing and a preponderance of propaganda.
But it's a dream come true.
It costs six bucks. For a week of space geeking. And, on Sunday, demonstration launches and tests. By at least four different crafts/engines. If that doesn't give you tingles all over, you have no soul.
Maybe I can wrangle just going down for the seventh, eighth, and ninth...
Dammit, no, that would still cost me $300+, and I just can't afford it. Goddamn it!
If you can go, go. Bring me some swag.
I'll go next year.
