    Anyone else around Boston going to BotCon? I'm still pretty new to the hobby and it would be nice to have some local people to bounce questions off of.

    I'm up n Manchester NH, not too far from Boston, and I'll be going. Might be hanging with the rest of the staff, but If you see me, hit me up. I wish I could help Artsenal, but I'm flying out out Logan or Manchester. Sorry bud, and hope you find some others that are going.

    Nope, this will be my second one, but my first going alone. The last time I spent most of my time with my brother. This time, I'm tagging behind the rest of the staff if I can. :)

    Coming down from NH myself. Flying out of Pease Airport in Portsmouth. Take a gander through a couple of the picture threads and just approach the group that you see the folks in. TFW folks are incredibly welcoming. I saw Super Megs hanging out in a bar with a bunch of TFW folks back at 06. My wife and I walked up and introduced ourselves and I asked him if he was the guy who was voted TFW's most sexy member that year. He then propositioned me to go upstairs. Ahhh...good times.

    XJunky, How are you flying out of Pease? Airbus? I didn't think they flew to Cincy.

    Yeah, we're doing Skybus. They fly into Columbus which is about a 2 hour drive to Cincinnati according to Google Maps. I'm saving $400 in fares (between my wife and I), and spending about $75 and gas for a rental car. I might wind up hitching a ride with another TFW'er in Columbus for a ride down, but he doesn't have his plans quite set yet.

    That's kewl. I was thinking of that, but it was too much of a hassle for me, and the cost was going to be comparable to fly out of Manchester then for me to scramble out of work and to Portsmouth and then get a rental car. We'll see. Fiancee told me no to plane tickets this week, and to think about NOT going.

    I feel so left out. Last year was my first one (since it was in my backyard). I wanted to go to 08, but wifey said no since we just got back from a vacation.

    Hey X-Junky, what day are you guys flying back? I think I'm going to end up going Skybus after all. I'm thinking of flying back Sunday night.

    I still have yet to have gone to a Botcon and I would love to go, but definitely can't afford it. As I always say, maybe next year.

    Yeah, I just checked my email a few minutes ago. Piece of crap! My wife and I decided to drive because tickets for other airlines are stupid expensive. If you want, you can come with us and save some cash. We're driving down Wednesday night, returning Sunday after the con. PM me if your interested.

    Well at least it happened 3 weeks in advance. My GF and I are flying into Columbus that Wednesday and driving down. It's sad even though we're renting a car, were still saving over $100 bucks each on the flight by flying in to Columbus instead of Cincinnati.
