I'm looking for opinions:
I've got a 4 month tour of Europe planned this summer, with flights booked and paid for, all ready to go. However, a very good friend of mine just anounced that she is getting married on the Sunshine coast (north of Vancouver) in the middle of July and she wants me there. I also have to make it to Blackrock City (near Reno, Nevada) by the end of August. My original plan was to fly home from Europe at the end of August and drive to Nevada, however, I checked the flights out, and I could re-book my return flight to make it to the wedding for $300, and then ride to Nevada from there and try to bum a ride home to Calgary with friends.
So to sum up, here are my options:
1. Skip the wedding, save 300$, stay in Europe, drive from Calgary to Nevada and back.
2. Attend the wedding, spend 300$, leave Europe early, ride from Vancouver to Nevada, bum a ride back.
If you were me, what would you prefer? Also, do you see any gaping holes plan #2? (I've got a short timeline on the decision, so I'm looking for all the quality control steps I can get...)
