ST Octane Academy (Should I go?? Need some opinions!!)

This would literally be my one and only chance to go, so it's hard not to consider it...
I live on the east coast, so I'd have to fly (which I've never done before), and that can get expensive. I've managed to scrape enough money together for 2 round-trip tickets and a hotel room for my girlfriend and I, but she wouldn't be able to attend the event with me..
Then there's the fact that we'd both have to miss classes (we're college kids), take off work (if I'm even able to...), and find some way of getting around in Utah.

So, is the $800, skipping classes, having no airport experience, missing work, not having a reliable way of getting around there, and lack of sleep and/or jet lag worth it?? Man I'd love to have that badge for my Fiesta, learn the skills, and get the swag... but am I crazy for wanting to go?

I took my girl with me and paid to have her there. It says in the literature that you "guest" has to be able to drive a stick shift car in order to eligible, but the only thing she got to do was BE DRIVEN by the instructors. Not worth the money to take a guest to the track. That said, in your financial situation, PASS. You can't afford it, good as it is.
