I'm going to make this post open to Twitter just to cover bases. I know a lot of people don't frequent LJ much any more.

It was my hope to attend JadeCon's 20th anniversary in Columbus, Ohio in June this year. Due to a rash of complications (schedule and finances), I regretfully have come to the conclusion I cannot go. Most of my remaining vacation time for 2016 (save for the two days I was going to use for JadeCon) is spoken for, and the lowest flight price I've seen for the dates that I can travel (the dates in question are not flexible, which probably doesn't help) is over $650 roundtrip. Most airlines are charging more than that. Hell, I saw one round trip ticket yesterday that topped out at $1009. When I was told to brace myself for crazy ticket prices, I was thinking $450 to $500, maybe. Not an average of over $800 on most airlines. The mind boggles.

With Texas Frightmare looming (thankfully, most of that trip is paid for, save for airport parking and spending cash) in a little over a month, and two furbabies with scheduled dental cleaning appointments (total: $700-$800) to budget for... well, you get the picture.

I'm sorry, Jaders. To those of you who stepped up with possible options and ideas to get me there, I appreciate it... but the inflexible travel dates were the final nail in the coffin, I'm afraid. :(
