Ok, we are a little more than 6 weeks out from PAX East.  Update on things:

1. Have not received badges for the 4 of us leaving from Michigan just yet, but will be watching for them.  I think they came 2-3 weeks before the event last time.

2. Looks like it will be easier to pick little Graceling up on our way to the hotel since we'll pass by her town on the way to Boston.  She's also an hour away from Boston, so it would mean not having to spend an extra 2 hours going and getting her. Mish, do you want me to forward the directions I have?

3. I think the final tally for the hotel room is 6 -- me, Nayth0r, Mish, Monkey, my sis, and Graceling.  I figured I'd pay for it and get moneyz from you all later.  Should be a little over $100 a person.

4. Sounds like the leaving-from-Michigan (LFM) peeps either have their passports or are in the process of getting them.  Hopefully Operation: Drive Through Canada will still be a go.

5. Being that the trip is 13-14 hours, I expect LFM peeps will spend Wednesday night at our place so we can pack the car the night before and leave bright and early to hopefully avoid a ton of the bridge/tunnel traffic.  If this is not the case, let me know.

It's almost here guys!  I can hardly wait.

Driving directions for the Canada part will be necessary. I don't want to be running my phone in GPS mode while in Canada since I don't know what it will do to my phone bill. I intend to turn the thing off until we hit the US again. But other than for that part of it we should be okay with just addresses (unless there's anything tricky to find like parking at the end of any of our stop points). It certainly doesn't hurt to have a print-out of the whole thing as well, though, just to be safe. Redundancy is a good thing. And as for confirmation, I do indeed intend to spend Wednesday night at your place the night before we leave.

I can't wait for this trip! It is gonna be so fun! It'll be good to see your Graceling as well. She's fun people.

The only passport we're currently waiting on is my sis's -- if it doesn't show up in the "check your passport status" thing this week, I will have her call to check out what the hell happened to it.

Monkey, have you gotten plane tickets yet?

And now for an update from PA's site: The Omegathon!

At PAX east we do things a little different. Rather than competing individually, our Omeganauts are paired up. If you’re interested in watching any of the rounds here’s a list for you.

Round 1: X-Men
Merman Theatre, Friday, 4:00 PM

Round 2: Zip-It
Merman Theatre, Saturday, 2:00 PM

Round 3: Dance Central 2
Main Theatre, Saturday, 8:00 PM - the opening act to the Saturday night concerts

Final Round: ???
Main Theatre, Sunday, 5:30 PM

If they do it the same way as they did the first time we were there, they basically draw names out of a hat to form teams to compete.  Thankfully we have an idea of what the games are ahead of time.  Don't think we're going to practice any of these or something silly like that, but always good to know the game list to know what you might be playing if you get picked.

Less than a month now!

I've gotten my days off approved for PAX so everything's in line for me. Only thing I'm waiting on now is time to pass.

I need to work out the Monday off with my job.  Apparently they "never" approve days off adjacent to breaks, and if I just use a sick day they're likely to want documentation. 

 

So anyway, just thought I would share the bull shit and how I now will have to go all the way to the top in order to get the Monday off. 

 

Sigh.

Alright I should be getting into boston on Thursday at 3:48 pm. What hotel are we going to be staying at?

I'm assuming more planning will be going on throughout the next couple weeks.

On a side note I picked up tickets for and am staying in boston through Wednesday morning. I'm planning on doing some touristy things since I'm traveling to boston in any case. At the very least I need to find the statue of my great great great... aunt? some kind of relative that was one of the accused in the salem witch trials.

We are staying at:

OMNI PARKER HOUSE
60 School St
Boston, MA 02108

They provide a shuttle to the event, but it's probably only a 1/2 hour walk.  You know, just in case the shuttle doesn't run early or late enough.

Unfortunately we won't be getting to Boston quite as early as you Monkey.  Didn't know if you wanted to go hang out at the hotel or what -- I still need to add another legitimate person (so as to get another room key), so I couold potentially just add you and then you can get into the actual room.  My only concern is them then asking for your credit card, as I was planning on handling all the hotel stuff.  We are also checking out on Sunday, so I don't know what you want to do as far as moving stuff.

Oh, and in case this wasn't clear, here's how I was planning on the driving stuff going:
Thursday 4/5 - Drive to Boston, park car at hotel
Friday 4/6 through Sat 4/7 - Leave car at hotel, checking in on it to make sure it's safe
Sun 4/8 - Check out of hotel, move stuff to car, leave in parking lot until done with convention, go pick up car, drive to Grace's
Mon 4/9 - Drive home from Grace's

I didn't have any problem with my car being messed with when we drove last time, so it should be safe.

You can add me to it. I've done hotels before that you may have to give them a credit card to start to have on file, but that you don't pay til you leave and can use any credit card. I'm assuming that this one would be the same.

Edit: I got my PAX badge today! Also for the heck of it I downloaded the PAX android guidebook.

I just noticed there's a typo on my passport... They've got my birthday wrong by one digit in the tens column! If I go through the correction process I'll never get it back in time! FUCK!
