Alright. Well as I said when I posted last month something would happen and so it has!!!
I am posting here with regards to A-Kon 19 in Dallas Texas May 30th through June 1st. I am very aware that this is a long time in advance, but here is my dilemma. I recently made plans with a friend of mine to take this trip and due to some financial difficulties on her part she will be unable to attend. Therefore I have the cost of a $520 hotel room at the Addam’s Mark where the convention is held. And as such I was looking for a traveling buddy, if you will, that would be willing to share the room cost or if someone was already planning to go and would like to stay in the Addam’s Mark I have a double occupancy room with 2 queen size beds. The reservation is made for us to check in on Thursday the 29th of May through the morning of June the 1st. Check in is a Thursday afternoon at 3pm and checkout I believe is at noon, but the extra night would give us a chance to rest up, get Cosplay (or Lolita) steamed or pressed and ready to go as well as give us a chance to get badges ahead of time and the like.
If I were to find said traveling buddy here in the Colorado Springs or Denver area your cost for the room would be half, so $260 dollars in round numbers. I made the reservation in January so the room should be in a pretty decent location as they assign rooms by reservation date...
However the downside to this is that while the hotel would be less all other expenses including airfare, food, convention registration and various other things would be yours. So if anyone else is planning on going or has the budget, that might be best. Please feel free to drop me a comment, private message, or you are welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and we can discuss details further!
Once again I know this is terribly early but I figure its best to plan as early as possible to avoid the bumps before a trip that always seem to occur! Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon!! (^o^)
