Wow, that’s cool  8) We met You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login last year on the Sunday just before he went to Iceland with his family - it’s great to hear people on here are interested in visiting Iceland, never mind running the marathon (something I’ve made sure never to do myself  ;D ). Hope it all goes well and that you have an awesome time!

It was beautiful there, and very relaxing. (Well except for the Costco.) Look for my new travelogue, "Roundabouts and One-lane Bridges." ;)

We're just taking the boring SFO -> SAN flight again this year but for the first time in a while my wife and daughter are joining us for SDCC.

Oh wow, you braved the Icelandic Costco?!!  ??? And survived it?!!  :o The arrival of that store last year was crazy; Icelanders generally get very excited about foreign stores setting-up in the country, but the response to Costco was off the scale - the idea of some proper competition coming to the island was very warmly welcomed  ;D

I’ll be sure to check-out the travelogue  8)

From Singapore. I've been wanting to go to SDCC since 2006 when I first learned about it. It took me 12 years of waiting, saving, and luck but I'm going for the first time this year!

You will have a great time. It will be less humid compared to Singapore.

Fun isn’t something one considers when preparing for Comic-Con, but attending does put a smile on my face

Whew, thank goodness.

Do I need to slap on insect repellent though? Does San Diego have mosquitoes or annoying flies in the summer?

Negative. No bugs here. San Diego doesnt get hot enough for summer bugs. It's in the 70s all summer.

Except when it's in the 80s during Comic-con, and we all melt in the sun while sitting in lines...  ;)

It has been on the warm side the last few years. Considering it's the end of July though we are blessed it's that mild. Drive 1.5 hrs north to riverside and it's 105 lol.

Atleast we get that marine layer til noon and if it's gonna hit the 80s it's for a short time before it starts cooling off.

I'm from Phoenix.  I'm not complaining about 80 degrees!  But it does seem like every year there's a heat wave during SDCC.
