Thanks to all for my welcome, and your assistance

I would like to thank everyone from my roomate Nick, the Funding Committee, members who helped me find a reasonable airfare, and I came close to going with the generous funding I was granted.  However the rates kept going up the further into the reservation I would go and when it came time to enter credit card info.  it was 100-200 about the original quoted fee.  Taxes, fuel charges, luggage fees and those peanuts!
Also I could make it work but I had a car accident and am putting out the money for the deductible and the car rental this week and that will impact my budget next month.  I would have been in Mexico and low on plan money and that is something I don't do well with.   
Again, I thank you all and know there was a lot of back and forth in a short time.  Next year I will start planning earlier and hopefully there will be a bigger crowd!  Have the best of times.  I look forward to hearing about the scandals, lol.
Thank you,
Ron G

20 years with HIV, 10 years with HCV and still rocking.  Do yourselves a favor, do a lot of research on reputable sites, find a multidisciplinary care team, think POZ., no more fun drugs booze, eat well, enjoy good safe sex a lot, and network in forums like this where there some people with knowledge.  Otherwise get a health care advocate through your local A.S.O.   Smile and be adventurous.  Help your peers and my best to you all!

Sorry that you can't make it, Ron.  There will be other times for sure. 

Sorry to hear of the car accident as well.
