I can relate to that. I wasn't planning on going in 2020 either, mostly due to it being a pain to get there. It took us almost 12 hours to drive, with road work most of the way.
But Legend convinced me to go, and I enjoy the social side a lot, just like you.
Laugh at you in ecstasy, wallow in the gore.
Blast you with their twisted minds, behold the Dogs Of War.
