Okay, people are starting to move on Otakon. Wai.

I have a general question for everyone: what are your plans?

"Plans" encompasses a lot of things--mode of transportation, arrival date and time, departure date and time, hotel, number of roommates, etc. In particular, I'm curious how many people are going to arrive early--my years of training in airline-fu have taught me that such a plan is often wise. (A lot of people missed their Oxford interviews because it was very windy that day and airplanes couldn't land--a very bad situation when you don't give yourself extra time.)

So, have at it. What are you planning to do?

I plan on flying in Thursday and leaving Sunday. I think generally that's the standard plan, most people arriving Thursday and leaving Sunday...

I am going to show up at some point Friday. This translates into "whenever the heck Erik and I decide to wake up" + time_to_drive + time_to_find_parking. Hotel check-in should be fairly quick and painless, with a slightly more painful registration process at the con itself.

Then we play. Right now the "goal" is to leave somewhere around 9AM, so we hopefully miss most of the morning rush-hour and dodge at least part of the lunch rush. Haha! Who am I kidding here?

Just me and Erik in our room - the Wyndham Baltimore Harbour.

I'm driving up with the 'rents and staying with family, so... *shrugs* I guess my plans are sorta peripheral :D

Picking up Lights at airport and driving down there, so we get to the hotel on Thursday.

I'm rooming with Lights, Josh, and Errant so far (Renaissance hotel).

I'm looking at driving up on Thursday and staying at the Wyndham for the duration of the trip. I'll be with 'rents again (hopefully, they won't drag me off to some crabshack, then take us on an unecessary tour of the city this time), so don't expect me to be able to accomodate anyone else's plans. My parents still think that you all want to mug/kill/rape me.

Damn! They're onto my nefarious plot!

(Twice in one day!)

Don't underestimate my parents, they're smart ones, they are.

all at once? They really think a bunch of gamers/otaku are that athletic?
Mar. 15th, 2004 03:46 pm (UTC)
Well, probably more along the order of mug, then rape, then kill. Still takes a lot of skill, though. Don't worry, I'm sure there are people here who are capable of that.

From whatever my currently unknown point of origin is, get into Detroit sometime Wendesday night / early Thursday morning. Thursday morning, pick up Rachel from the airport and Code from wherever we decide is best to pick him up from. Drive really long way.

Should put the three of us at the hotel sometime late Thursday.

Lesse.. What he said, plus extra plans of my own: Gonna fly to Detroit, then drive down to Baltimore with Rob and Code (it sounds silly, but it's really not). We'll get to the hotel late Thursday night, hopefully, and we're leaving Sunday. Drive back up to Detroit where I will probably spend the night at Rob's house, as driving all that way and then getting on a plane and flying home doesn't sound good to me at all (though, somehow, flying and THEN driving all that way sounds just fine.. weird).

As for how many people per room.. it's just Rob and me, because I have a tendency to get a little freaked out around new people sometimes, and I'm gonna need a quiet place to go if things just get too intense. [/sounds oh so pathetic] Plus, he's just about the only one I'd feel comfortable rooming with anyway.

My team only got hotel rooms for Friday and Saturday, so I'm going to try to get a flight in early Friday morning and out sometime Sunday.

I haven't really figured out how to do that yet, though. Seriously, I have no freaking clue.

I'm getting to Baltimore somehow Friday morningish (could be flying, might just take a train) and then leaving Sunday afternoon. Rooming with uhh...Fox, hell, and Opt, I think, at the Wyndham.
Mar. 15th, 2004 08:12 pm (UTC)
definately friday through sunday. I think I'm still rooming with opt and those people. I have no idea how I'm getting there yet. It's most definiately driving, but I don't know how yet.
