For 2010 I’m joining the crowd and will be looking forward to reading & hearing about the Dayton Hamvention from the comfort of my own home.
The unwashed Hara isn’t the reason, nor is it the torn up roads between here & there.
Comes down to costs vs benefits, and I’m loath to use the vacation time, spend the money & then face the grubby Hara & vile roads.
Also took an opportunity to start a professional development class which conflicts (I signed up for the course after I had decided to not do Dayton this year).
I’m quite content to do the Hamvention vicariously – with the Podcasts, Streaming Video and Webinars it really doesn’t seem like the travel & expense are worth it!
