I'm OK with not going this year. Have fun. No need for envy.

Last year needing a plane ticket I would definitely be envious of having $60 in tolls instead.

I think it comes down to how much you enjoy it and really want to be there. I have a narrow collecting focus and I don't typically find much, if anything, to pick up.

Last time I went, I poked around for 7 hours or so, didn't find anything and decided, I'm gonna head back home. I had a hotel room booked for that night too, but knew after the first day, I didn't need to go back for a second day.

I agree completely! It's different for everyone.
