Expo 2016: Travel Plans and Guidelines
We officially begin at 3 or 6pm on June 22 so please try to be here by then. If you're flying into DTW, that means you should be here by 1 or 4pm. We welcome arrivals as early as the weekend prior if you don't mind helping during setup, but please no earlier without clearance. Usually we have some informal activities on Tuesday (23rd).
We officially end after midnight on Saturday the 25th. We do informal group brunches on Sunday. Anyone is welcome to stay as late as Monday (29th). Please no later without clearance.
We hope you can coordinate your own airport rides from other Icrontians via this discussion. DTW is approximately 20 minutes from the house, 30 in heavy traffic. If you have a car and are able, please consider making at least 1 airport run. Icrontic will contribute gas money for drivers; see Lincoln. If you are unable to find a ride, please ask Lincoln or Brian AT LEAST A DAY PRIOR so we have time to coordinate. Taxis are stupid expensive.
Post your own travel dates. If by air, please include the flight number. We only need flight info for the flight arriving in / leaving DTW not every leg.

OK I think I have travel plans secured with Emily and Steven. I'm looking at options for sleeping. I'm on my budget alone here so I am looking to either stay at the house or share a hotel/b&b room or house with a group. I need to do this as cheap as possible or I won't be able to come. So whose still looking to split rooms and is there availability at the house still??
I don't think the house has ever officially run out of room, although we were a bit sardine-y last year.
What's a little bit of spooning chain among friends.
I am most likely going to be in a hotel the entire time. @Levex I don't know you but when has that ever stopped me, if you want to split a hotel let me know.
I'll have a house sleeping signup closer to the event; I neglected to put it on the registration form. @GnomeQueen is correct, it's not a matter of "if" we can fit you but rather what we can offer you comfort-wise. That said, it sounds like we'll have quite a bit of capacity, and I think I picked up a few more sleeping surfaces since last year. We currently have 3 fullsize mattresses, 2 twin mattresses, 4 cots, and room for 3-4 BYO air mattresses.
Sounds good, I just need anything but the floor, damn neck. But I mean couches are good...
Caveat: I may need assistance cleaning the attic earlier in the week depending on when the roof project happens. If it's done just the week before, it'll be a thing.
@Thrax and @HumerusMeg are driving
-Depart on 27th of June driving back to TX
Well I want to go for sure if @HumerusMeg is gonna be there. Also depending on when I get there I will happily help clean.
Your making me blush over here.... Can't wait to see you too! :-*
if you want, just crash at my place monday night on way back to OKC
also, guess I should buy a ticket at some point
Might just do that.
Oh yeah, knew I was forgetting something...
I will be arriving via the McRae/Patras caravan, can't wait to see you all!
Anyone from Indiana needing a ride?
I plan to arrive on Wednesday among a caravan of other Cincinnaticrontians. I am most likely flying out of DTW to Denver some time on Sunday, but I have not yet booked the flight. I'll update here as I solidify plans.
Departs DTW 3:35 PM June 26
I'll be getting in Wednesday after work. Might take a half day, playing it by ear based on the business.
As of right now I'll probably be driving to Elkhart before Expo and driving up with @UPSKingpin, not sure what day... but that's as of right now, I mean I might end up flying eventually.
Tentative plans: driving, arriving Wed, departing Sun, crashing in attic.

I'm flying to Cincinnati via Detroit, then driving to Detroit for EPIC with the cincinnaticrontians, then driving back to Cincinnati, then flying back to munich via Detroit. I wish I could just stay in detroit until my return flight.
So then... do... that?
Not sure what's preventing you from staying until your flight, but if you think it's us, it's not. You're welcome to stay
I'm pretty sure he meant the airline rules are what is preventing him from staying. If you miss the first leg of a connecting flight, the airlines will now cancel the rest of your itinerary.
Aye. This is the rub. And scheduling two non-round trips to take me into Cincinnati, then out of Detroit, would have been hella expensive. It's dumb that I can't just get on that flight in Detroit.
