Okay. So. Next problem: travel and accommodations. I told Surly Amy that although I am super poor right now, actually working full time but earning less than the federal minimum wage (it’s totally legal because it’s SERVICE!), I would still be able to rustle up travel and lodging somehow. And that “somehow” is you! Looks like airfare from upstate NY to Austin will run me about $600. I’m also interested in securing lodging. Now, I know some folks in the Austin area, with whom I may be able to stay, but I’m also interested in getting a hotel room, if not on-site, then at least close by. Especially since I won’t have a car while I’m there. Hey, does anybody in Austin have a bicycle I can borrow? Anyway, I’m just putting this up here to start getting the word out. I’ll update with details about how to donate as soon as I make arrangements.
UPDATE: Stephanie Zvan has agreed to be the go-between for fund collection for my travel and lodging. Thanks, Stephanie!
UPDATE 2: Because I’m a n00b, I’m having trouble embedding the paypal html here. Stay tuned! Or go to Almost Diamonds and click her Paypal link. Just be sure to drop her a note telling her that it’s for Sending Sally to Austin.
