    Still not for sure. Trying to figure out the ticket situation and how many people from our company are already going.

    I'll be there - my dad will be at APEX across the street, so why not. If anyone knows of a ticket to get in floating around, it would be greatly appreciated. I smell an OTAP meat.

    Taking time off school and work and spending some $$$ to fly out there is the why the not part.

    If I take into account the money that I'm spending, plus the opportunity cost of missing work, it just makes things worse.

    But, I have a free place to stay and probably a few free meals, so I think I'm gonna go.

    I do already have my plane tickets...

    i might be there... not sure if i'll go to the show though lol.
    It's just an excuse for us car-industry people to not work.

    I'm free (somewhat) Sunday and Monday, the 1st and 2nd. Tuesday will be all at SEMA. Like I said, I'll have another OTer w/ me in Vegas, so set up a lunch or something since I'll be w/ my boss and coworkers for dinner probably. :big grin:
