    You know what I would do if I arrived in Austin a few hours early?

    Where though?  I'm pretty useless at sleeping unless I'm horizontal.

    I want to talk about sleeping in public buy you used one of my few trump card comments so I'm just going to narrow my eyes and nod my assent.


    [Narrows eyes and nods]

    I suppose I could get my goody bag and badge as early as possible and sleep in my spot in line.  I need to find a Simmons cosplayer.

    Looks like we're still talking.


    Sorry, guys - some life stuff came up. I will secure the booking tomorrow. Right now we're looking at 21 guests, total, plus a couple community members who might be swinging by.

    There's a bus that goes straight from the airport to downtown. It takes about 30 minutes and it only costs $1.25. Something to consider if you don't want the hour long round trip and to save some gas.


    As much as I'd like to join you guys for lunch, I think it would be better if I were to meet up with you guys afterwards. By the time I get my stuff together, catch the bus, check in, and settle into my room, it'll probably be near 3 or 4pm. I plan on bringing a sandwich or something with me for lunch anyway. Although it's a month away and plans might still change.

    Jaron and myself are scheduled to arrive in Austin on Thursday morning, check in with MrWartburg, and get our badges.  Then the SQ auction is that evening and we'll be heading to that as well.  So between arriving and going to SQ, there will probably be some time for us to kill that day.

    Definitely. Not sure what our fourth will be doing, as he doesn't frequent these parts, but I'm down for stuff.

    The second one, leaving home at 11pm, getting to Texas early AM, getting to hotel and throwing my bags behind the desk, and then killing time until the doors open.
