Yeah... heh, thanks. See, the situation now is, if I do the panel, I get into the con free. I have friends in the area who reserved rooms cheap some time ago, so I have somewhere inexpensive to stay. It's just a matter of getting there... and while I'd jump at the chance to carpool and chip in some for gas money instead of trying to raise a little more money and go Amtrak, I think my parents might have a heart attack if I went along for a long car ride with people that not only they don't know, but I only just met. -_-
But I'm rather desperate, so thanks for the offer and I'd definitely keep it in mind...
