So, here are my convention and other travel plans for 2006, thus far:

March 18-19: Vancouver, BC, for fun and a Wings game on the 19th.

March 24-26: SakuraCon, in Seattle. This doesn't fall under the category of "travel", as I'll be staying at my apartment for the con, and walking the five blocks down the hill to the convention center.

POSSIBLY: April 1: Emerald City Comic Con. I'd probably just go out for the day, to see howardtayler and check out the scene.

April 13-16: Norwescon, Seatac, WA. SF convention.

July 19-23: San Diego Comic Con! Gonna get to see high school friends kinkyprude and clearbluevinyl again, as well as a metric fuckton of webcomics people.

August 25-27: PAX, Bellevue, WA. Likely hanging out with a bunch of NaNoWriMo people.

December 22-January 1, 2007: Holidays back in Ann Arbor. In particular, I promised my little sister that I'd stay through New Year's this time, after not doing so last time. Sora and I have been vaguely contemplating a day/overnight trip up to the Toronto area as well, sometime between Christmas and New Year's.

Hopefully at some point, but as yet unscheduled: Los Angeles, CA, for Jeopardy taping.

Need con passes: Norwescon, SDCC (, ECCC)
Need hotel arrangements: Norwescon
Need travel arrangements: SDCC

Something I keep noticing vaguely -- First half of the year is going to be so busy! And then it all just kind of gets quiet for the majority of the latter half of the year. (This will be good if I get to go back to school the way I want to.)

Nevertheless, it's going to be massive amounts of fun. *beams* I'm excited.

So...set for room at Norwes con? Do you know how much it will be? I'm trying to budget myself until June.

Go Wings!

Okay. It'll be around $40/night. (It's $109 plus taxes - I'm pretty sure that'll add about another $10 - split three ways, at the moment.) We're checking in Thursday night since that's the day the con starts - I don't know when you were planning on showing up, but I certainly won't ask you to pay for nights you're not staying in the room.

If you've got someone else who wants to join us as well, that should be fine, but at the moment you've got a bed to yourself.

Okay! Do you mean now, or just tell you what the con's like after we go?

I've only been to one SF con out here so far, and it was a NASFiC, so I really doubt it's representative of the general con scene out here. I could be wrong, though!

That's "hopefully". I tried out, and I passed the test, and I think I did really well in the mock-game audition. But I haven't actually been called down to LA yet.

You have to let me know when/if it happens!! I will totally watch you (maybe I can find out how to be in the audience and be a cheering section)...

Impressive list of cons :) I remember something about Howard no longer going to Emerald City though so you may want to check on that if he's your main reason to go.

Hm. You're right. That information was apparently posted on the convention schedule at one point before having the convention removed entirely, which is confusing cause I found a blog post saying that he was going, but hadn't put it on the schedule yet. I found it via the cached version on Google Site Search.

Thanks for the info!
