I am wondering what your Botcon 2008 plans are so go ahead and list them all.
April 20 - Fly into Long Island, spend a couple of days with DMK
April 22 - Tricky Disco joins us
April 23 - Road trip to Cincinatti
April 24-27 - Botcon!
April 28 - Roadtrip back to Long Island
April 30 - Fly home
land, check in, get set, find other board members, drink
buy stuff, check out stuff, find other board members, drink
panels, buy more stuff, find other baord members, drink
fly home, go to bed for rest of the day.
Backscatter & I will drive from Virginia to Cincinnati on 4/22, we will attend the Customizing class on Wednesday. Thursday will be open until time to line up in the 'store' line. Thurs - Sun. we will pack in as much a humanly possible, then start the trip home after the closing bell of BotCon.
I get there at around 10AM on the 23rd and leave on the 28th. In between will be a alcohol induced blurr. I get home just in time to help my friend celebrate her 21st. Then 3 days later another has her 21st. My liver is going to hate me after those two weeks.
24th land, check in, hang out with fellow geeks
25th Botcon goodness
26th More Botcon goodness
27th Even more botcon goodness, fly out to Texas, stay there overnight and fly out on the 28th back to Washington. I can't complain about the time between flights, I did get a free ticket.
to not be there
Which is a shit plan, Randy, and you will be missed.
I wish I was going Pete, but I just can't make the ends meet as it is right now you fuckers better set aside a beer for me in spirit haha
You forgot to include 'get drunk and party!'
We're driving from Boston to Philly, spending a couple days there with family. Then we wiil pick up Liokaiser and drive to Cincy early Thursday, get there in time for pickup.
hang out, drink and party as much as possible with the TFW crew (this is the most important part), then the long ride home.
Rolling up into Cinncinnati mob deep in a minivan early Friday morning. Just couldn't squeeze Thursday into the schedule.
Hopefully carpooling with ATLianz and any other Georgians I can find. Spending three days geeking out and drinking, then back in the OR in Cordele, GA early Monday morning.
I'm telling my preceptor I have drill that weekend. Nobody can say no to the Army, because if you do, you're helping the terrorists. And it's just easier that using the phrase "toy robot convention."
Wednesday- leave the house at 8:45 am arrive at the convention 9:00 for the customizing class. (I love being 10 minutes away) Afterwards start the parts party.
Thursday thru Sunday scower the dealers room, drink and party.
Sunday after 5pm go to bed... finally.
So which day does the parts party start?
Wednesday probably, it really depends on who all shows up on that day. Definately on Thursday. I will have internet access and will update a thread daily. That worked last year.
I thought that was a given anyway

Those going out after hours remember. Don't go to Over the Rhine. That is in the North East part of town. Even downtown is risky if you don't know where you are. Finally staying in large numbers always helps.
