That would be fine by me. How likely is it that I resolve the roommate situation? Do I just bring cash and look for someone?

I would ask for a roommate when you get there, but I will also put out the word when I get there tomorrow.

You think it will be likely I can find a room? It's pretty far from home so I'm kind of out of luck if I can't.

Do most people organize roommates the day the convention starts? Or do people organize on the facebook group?

I'm mostly trying to figure out if it's "safe" for me to buy tickets. Just so I don't end up buying them and realizing that I don't have a ride or room. They're shockingly still in stock in the online convention store, even the wabi kusas.

Most people already have roommates because they already know the people they are rooming with. My roommate has been someone that I've shared a room with for the past four conventions. You can always message on the AGA Facebook page and ask. I don't know what else to tell you.

In that case I think it's not worth the risk for me to try to attend.

Thanks for your help! I'm kind of new to this I admit.
