Hey. I'm 14, and very interested in space flight. I went to the convention last year since it's only about a 1 hour drive. I don't think my parents will go for a trip to Texas. Does anyone have some ideas on how to make my parent take me?

Show them the webpage with the attendees:
http://www.autographshows.net

and maybe they will see astronauts and others they will want to meet and so they will want to go, too. Sneaky, huh?

Mike, Sounds like it's time to deal. Maybe if you offered up something. Maybe to pay for part of the trip yourself, manicure the lawn for 6 months, do the dishes, etc. Go for your dreams; who knows where they will take you!

Tell them you have to do a school project on the Alamo and you need pictures of the inside.

Have someone steal your bike and get a fortune teller to tell you that it's in the basement of the Alamo. With any luck, your parents have not seen "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" and you can get away with it!
