I'll volunteer to go to the Coleco Expo if we raise $200 to send me there. I'll do a video walk through and perhaps shoot video of whatever else - I'll take requests.

 

The show is 300 miles round trip. Using the IRS gas mileage I'll settle on $0.50 per mile. Plus $20 for the ticket to the show. Plus extra to cover GoFundMe fees. All we need to do is get 200 AA members to kick in $1.

I wouldn't be going to the show under any other circumstances. But if we get enough people to chip in $1 I'll drive out there and shoot video for the entertainment. I'm taking one for the team.

I actually like that idea. Maybe I'll chip in after all.

I'll throw some money at this.

 

This could turn out to be some quality schadenfreude.

Its 2 hours away. I can do a round trip for 23 bucks with my VW if I was that close. I would not waste my time.

Stink-palm stretch goal?

I kid, I kid.  

 

Though, I would like to know how that show goes--at least several dollars worth of 'wanting to know,' and I'm guessing I wouldn't find out any other way.

There is a moderate chance someone will recognize the shirt and throw him out early. Maybe change into the shirt for the last couple hours.

Is it wrong for me to hope for dashcon levels of drama?

I'm contributing now...as soon as I come up with an appropriate dad-rap for the message.

I'm not wearing the shirt as it will jeopardize the operation.

i doubt its going to be a complete failure. but it certainly lost a good 10-20% support from this community. it won't stop the locals who aren't on here. i liked the idea f the conference til they started messing with this community. i'd love to see the video and i'll chip in.

 

and i just did. hopefully you'll get enough. i'd love to see the video and i agree don't wear anything to get yourself kicked out.
