Planes, Passes, and Procrastination

Since Shinedown is now my new favorite band, I joined their fan club.  This may sound like a geeky thing to do and you may be thinking that I'm way too old to be joining fan clubs.  What if I told you that was the best way to get good concert seats and even backstage passes?  I once went to Hawaii with Bon Jovi's fan club.  We spent a week exploring Oahu and went to two shows.  I got to go backstage and meet them at one of the concerts.  That would need a post (or 2, or 5) of it's own, though, so back to Shinedown.

I received an email containing the latest pre-sale dates and VIP packages.  I was debating whether to see them at one of their midwest concerts.  Only one was on a weekend that I don't have my daughter.  Can I drive to Ohio in December?  Do I need snow tires or chains?  Would I have a problem driving in the snow?  I've never even seen snow.  I could build a snowman!  Or I could die trying to get there.

I decided to check air fares.  I found an excellent rate!  The hotel provides a free shuttle to and from the airport and is less than 10 miles from the concert venue!  I can do this!  It would cost 500 dollars or more to buy a front row seat from a scalper.  For less than 500 dollars I can get a roundtrip plane ticket, a room, a good seat, and a meet and greet pass to say hello to the band!  I'm so excited!

I flipped back to the fan club website and saw that it was sold out already.  That's what I get for procrastinating...again...
