oh boy oh boy oh boy.... NYC Maker Faire is coming Sept. 21-22.... Answered

I may have a SHOT at going to the Maker Faire in Queens NY,  this coming Sept 21-22. 

I am not sure if I will be able to scrape together enough to stay overnight or not (which would be the ONLY way I could be there both days), but I may be able to "earn" the tickets in any case.

I am still at a loss however to explain to my wife why I want to go back since I have SEEN it already (*sigh* yes, I've told her repeatedly it is different each year).   Any suggestions about that would be appreciated. 

Anyways,  are ANY of you all going to be there ? 

One, or both days? 

Will the Instructables team be there?    I hope I can be.....

It's not just seeing, it's learning, acquiring ideas, and networking.

You could encounter something, or meet somebody who could be a massive help or inspiration for the work you do with young people. What about the youngster you've been mentoring? You could make it an educational trip, maybe with their family as well?

Also, she won't go, because, any place that is a DISTANCE she claims to need a wheelchair, even though she doesn't use one here

So, let her.

Dress the chair up, maybe wrap the frame in EL wire, something to get in the spirit of the event.

*chuckle* you don't know my wife.....she will THEN find another excuse not to go "so far away" AND "how much it costs (to stay overnight, since one really can't drive there for 3 1/2 hours to and 3 1/2 hours home and still really see much). I did the drive there and back in one day thing, and do not want a repeat performance of that mess. Candida can tell you about how early I had to leave to get through Manhattan before nightfall (if she remembers back that far.)
