    Ok, so i'm gonna be heading to Botcon 2008 from the UK, my first one! the girlfriend didnt want to come cause of the flight time. so i'm flying solo.

    question being who needs a room mate? looking at the price i dont wanna be paying 600 bucks for the 5 nights on my todd.

    anyone that needs a roomie or if a bunch of UK guys wanna share LMK.

    :)

    How much are the flights costing you? Might look into it if it's cheap enough...

    Sweet, more Brits at Botcon always welcome!
    Locustreign, it seems to be a good time to book flights. I'm flying into JFK (spending time with friends before Botcon, and road tripping to Concinatti), and my flights cost me £175 on www.expedia.com. Booking early FTW!

    I havent been able to find anything that cheap, must have left it a little to long to start looking.

    London to Chicago return is the cheapest I can find at 260gbp. From there theres plenty of methods of travel down to cincinnati, hell Megabus does tickets from $1 and it drops you just a block from the convention hotel.

    Course I cant do simple holidays like that. So its going to cost me more.

    *sigh*

    £260 is still very good indeed; last year it cost me almost 400 to get to Botcon (flying into Boston and then being driven to Rhode Island).
    Yup. Right down the road from Snarkyfuckerton. ;)

    think i'll pass on that one then! lol.

    do you reckon that it would be cheaper to book closer to the date? not too worried bout the cash. saved 400 squid as you said, but obviously the cheaper the more money i got for beer!

    Detroit is about 200 miles from Cincinnati. That would probably be a 4 hour drive. Looking at the map it would be a straight shot on I 75.
