ED Itinerary dilemma

Ok so heres my dilemma, I have a ED scheduled for 9/8 and I've been following for a while and most of the guys doing M5 ED is going down on 9/1. I couldn't make it that week so I did it for 9/8 to try and pair it with the F1 race at Monza Italy on 9/9.

So the dilemma is, I had a buddy setup to go with me to the trip and now he's backed out. I was wondering if I should go it alone? I thought it'd be kinda boring but fun at the same time. I don't want to miss the F1 race, never been to one, especially in Europe at Monza.

What would you guys do? Any of you ED guys doin the same itinerary?

thx
Mike

Only you can answer that, obviously. I think a shared experience with an enthusiast would be a LOT more fun. Would I do it alone? Probably not.

I did a solo ED once, and it wasn't nearly as fun. But at this point what can you do?

Try to find someone else to go with you. Otherwise do it alone.

It depends on your personality. I would go nuts being alone that long, others can handle it just fine.

I once backpacked through Europe in 17 countries all in 3 months all by myself. I did not go nuts. In fact it forced me to be more social and meet new people that otherwise I would have been out of my comfort zone had I went with a personal friend. Life is an adventure do not be afraid to go it alone. Sometimes connecting with yourself is the best relationship you can ever form.

Or you could always post a craigslist ad. LOL!
