Besides booking my trip to the convention, I've also made arrangements to go to the Ohio show in April as well. At least there I should be able to bring a bunch of stuff since I'll be driving out. That trip will unfortunately depend on my son's recovery after he just had emergency surgery yesterday and will need followup surgery in 3 months. Hopefully his second surgery will be after the Ohio show dates so I can make the show, but I'll have to wait and see. I should know well in advance at least.
If there's anything in my doubles you'd like to see at either show just let me know and I can make sure to bring it with me.
