I know I forgot people, please add them for me. I derp a lot.
===

I know I live 1500 miles from LA now, but we can still arrange to work things out to perhaps split flights/rentals/etc. Especially since a lot of LAX->DTW connects in Denver.
That being said, I'm not leaving after Expo is over. While I'm not starting a new life in Detroit like another me will in another universe, I am going to stay and visit family with Melissa who will be meeting up with me once Expo is over. So if you guys want to fly there on the same flight, that works out well. If you want to flyback together, count me out!

Can everyone interested please answer:
1. Are you going to Expo? (I realize this is probably maybe for a lot of people)
2. What days are you arriving and leaving?
3. Are you staying at ICHQ or a hotel/otherwise?
4. Are you interested in splitting a rental car/gas?
5. How much stuff are you packing? IE. Do we need to rent a minivan or is a small car going to work out?
6. Other relevant details

Here are my answers:
1. Yes
2. Arriving June 26, Leaving Never
3. Probably ICHQ
4. Yes
5. A backpack, laptop, standard large luggage (I'm staying for a while)
6. I want to fly Southwest this year if the price difference is less than $50 from Spirit

    1. Dan and I are going.
    2. We don't know yet, but we'd like to get there early-ish to score a sweet sleeping spot.
    3. We would also like to stay at ICHQ.
    4. Maybe? This is more Dan's department.
    5. Laptop, purse, carryon luggage.
    6. I, too, would like to fly Southwest. They give you blankets and smiles. Spirit shouldn't call themselves that.

    I got an EXPO ticket, but I'm unsure if I will be able to attend. I'll try my damnedest! I'll update this thread as my plans become clear.

    I'm traveling far too, but don't really have too much to add.
    1) This seems redundant to have ITT
    2) I'm arriving Wednesday night at zerodarkthirty
    3) Hotel, will share a 2 bed w/ someone, unless someone can say with decent certainty that it won't be 80 at night in attic.
    4) I will probably have to coordinate with hotel-goers for this
    5) Backup and large bag.
    6) Spirit is short for "we'll crush your spirit and grind it into food filler". Gogo American because they are cheaper than Southwest in this instance.

    I've got a few more details now. My trip will be Wed the 26th through Sunday the 30th unless the Monday flight price difference is THAT much of a difference.

    When are you looking to leave Denver @PirateNinja so I can work on connecting with ya.

    Hey Pirate! So I am not going to be coming out to Expo this year I'm afraid - though I will be flying out for Prime's wedding. Sorry for not responding sooner - I need to check things on IC more frequently x_x.

    Hi all,

    I can't go to Expo. Really sorry, it just isn't working out for me this year like I hoped it would.

    Sorry :(

    1. YES YES YES!
    2. Arriving 8:00 PM on the 25th, leaving 10:20 AM on the 30th - flying out of Orange County
    3. Requested a room in the hotel, other half of the bed has yet to be claimed - the bottom half.
    4. I'll be happy to split the cost of a rental car if I don't have to drive it (you really don't want me driving in an unfamiliar area; I get lost in my own city)
    5. I don't have a full-size PC, so just my suitcase and laptop - and I pack pretty lightly contrary to all of those girly stereotypes
    6. Bringing the recently acquired Roulette Shots game thingie I picked up in Vegas

    There will be nothing left unclaimed; @UPSLynx fills up all the halfs.

    We can be lonely together...sorta. I'm not the inner spoon though. :)
