Update on my COMING status:

Maybe.  Depends on if I can squeeze some time off from work.  Strictly speaking, I don't rate vacation time because I'm a contractor.  It's all going to depend on how the squadron I'm working for stands down for the new year.

The hell, Geo, the badges were the best part of last con.

Well that doesn't speak well for the company.

TA, YOU MEANIE.

YOU VIDEO-PLAYING MEANIE.

I figured it'd be a neat little keepsake, and something to help us spot each other in a crowd if we were split up.  Which happened.  Frequently.

You'd think an aural cue would be better.

I propose everyone carry an MP3 player with a speaker and have it play Torgo's theme on repeat.  Make sure you synchronize it for those times you manage to move as a group.

Kazz felt the need to leave me a rambling voice mail on this, so I'll answer it here.

1. Reserving a room at the hotel does not cost anything up front, though it does require your card info.  Cancelling a reservation is also free unless you cancel less than a day or two before check in time.  Hopefully by then you'll be sure whether you'll be able to come, so there's really no harm in reserving a room just in case the hotel fills up quicker than expected.  It's done entirely online and is pretty simple.

2. The hotel does not give you a room until you actually check in, so reserving now does not guarantee you a better room location than if you reserved later.  You CAN choose 1 or 2 beds when you reserve, you just won't be assigned a specific room until you check in.

I am not old enough to rent a car so if I got a plane ticket would I be able to get someone to pick me up from the airport?

Almost certainly.  One of us who live here, if nobody else.

I also noted in the topic post that there's a regular shuttle from National Airport (DCA) to the con hotel.

Are there shuttles to/from Dulles or BWI?

Just a note on the shuttle from the airport to the hotel, it runs on roughly fifteen minute intervals.  It doesn't hurt to call ahead to the hotel and ask about the shuttle.  Be sure to tip the driver.

Okay, so Eva and I basically need a place to crash.  We're willing to pitch in for a motel room if some other dudes want, we'll even take the floor.  We ain't afraid of no ghosts other people so we have no problem sharing.  This is a major factor in getting us up there, as we can't afford anywhere to say without splitting the cost of a room.

How ARE you getting there, Constantine?  I will not have a definite answer until around Thanksgiving, but I would be more than willing and able to split the cost of a room.

Oh snap. That is swwweet.  I don't live in Arlington, but It's all good. You two may have to pick me up and then we'll take my car. If this masterly, laid out plan works.

She could also contribute towards gas.  And, I'd be splitting a room with two ladies.  :suave:
