Title: When is everyone arriving?
Post by: rabbitwarren on May 11, 2018, 04:18:53 PM
Flying out early Tuesday morning from JFK and should arrive Tuesday morning in San Diego. Assuming my room isn’t ready, plan on having brunch at cafe 222 or breakfast republic and just chilling.

I’m coming from Australia but will be travelling beforehand so I will be flying in from Seattle on Tuesday and will be arriving around lunch time

Leaving from JFK early Wednesday morning, arriving to San Diego around noon. Just in time to have some lunch and make a Ralph's run before preview night shenanigans begin!

if you're still looking for something to do tuesday afternoon, there's an informal social gathering of forum folk outside of the Hilton Bayfront in front of StarBucks. We have name tags so people can know who you are ;)

i actually am planing on arriving in early July- and staying for a couple of months.

The only disadvantage of having recently moved to Vermont is that there are NO direct flights to any place I need to go. (Well, that and ticks.) Leaving here early Tuesday morning, "enjoying" a long layover in Chicago, and arriving mid-afternoon--just in time for the Tuesday afternoon forum get-together.

I leave Honolulu at like 10pm on Monday night (after working all day), arrive in LA just before 8am, then take a quick commuter plane down to San Diego arriving just after 10am.  I'll see a lot of you guys at the meet up that Tuesday but I'll be tired and gross since I won't have much time to decompress.  I think I'll have like 3-4 hours to get picked up by my friend, drop my stuff at his place (I don't check into my hotel until Wednesday), and then head on over to the Hilton Bayfront.  Should be fun!

I fly out of the Bay Area and since I have family in SD, I choose to come on early Tues or late Monday.  I do have family things after Comic Con this year, so I may end up coming earlier (like Fri or Sat before).

I'm already here waiting! Ok, I live in SD, but I'll be coming down for Tuesday Meetup, going home then coming back Wed morning and staying in a hotel so I don't have to commute. Yippee!

Thanos can only get half of us! I expect 60,000 of my closest friends to arrive any minute for a panel that features just one of the Olsen twins.

Question: If they do a Hitchhiker’s Guide panel, will Xaphod only have one head?

Meanwhile, I will be hopping from one leg to the other, trying not to  pee myself while sign waving people circle me with mega phones yelling at me that I deserve my punishment because I read evil pamphlets of men and women with big muscles and tights.

I am Groot (The end is nigh)!

it wasn't a joke when i started a thread- but i'm not going to be able to organize this--
nor did i make any reservations. Here is the thread about it- if someone else wants to take over the organizing https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?topic=8859.0

I am sorry about dropping out on this- my irl stuff is intense --- Hopefully it will be reduced by SDCC

For me, like last year i just gotta check in any day i wanna volunteer to have kinda free reign or roam around for the day. so i dont head down to con till like thurs early sometime. since pn is wed and not every does volunteer that day unless told by mail they do cause they off to do so if they can do at time. so i am guessing will check in to places they staying sometime before wed if got pn and rest days. but rest may just check in to places early to roam around days before con and check out attractions close by then be gearing up for days they able to go for the week. so guessing everyone be arriving at different times and all.

It’s the main reason I’m coming in early. I love the other meet-ups too. Each has its own thing to like. For the Tuesday meet-up, I like the chance to mingle freely and casually with the ability to come and go. I also like that it’s outside.

I'm tentatively booked for Tuesday arrival but i have a room for Monday night and the southwest costs between the two flights are the same.  I'm kind of back and forth right now; I like being in early to relax and eat my way through the town but I also have to take an extra vacation day sooooo I'm kind of stuck in the middle right now.
