I'm in that boat as well. We spent major money making the trip from Virginia to Cincinnati to stay for five days. The trip is a good enough distance (8 hours) that we can really afford to do this maybe once a year, which is what we had planned.
However, if the strike occurs, I don't care who's at fault. We won't be coming back for a long time, if ever. I'll continue to watch, listen and visit this forum, but that will be the extent of it.
