Then (if I am remembering the birthstones correctly) we have the same birth month!

This is my very first SDCC, and I'm extremely excited, but also nervous! My friends and I got Thursday/Sunday badges, which was a bit of a disappointment at first, but there is so much else I want to do in San Diego that I'm totally fine with it. I'm coming from the Cincinnati area. I'll be rooming with my friends but flying solo since they live in another part of the country. They haven't finalized their dates yet, but I'll be there 7/8-7/14.

I have a backup hotel reservation about a mile from the convention center but will be participating in the lottery to try to get closer and cheaper.

Any other Ohioans out there? I live closer to Cincinnati but am flying out of Columbus to save a couple hundred dollars. Need every penny for the hotel!

We're coming from Pittsburgh and have lots of family in Ohio!

This will be my 3rd SDCC (it went from "once in a lifetime/bucket list" to an addiction) & I live in Cleveland. Things could change, but as of now I'll be flying out of Cleveland Hopkins early Thursday morning. Hope to see you there!

I'm originally from Columbus (but have lived in Phoenix since 1996).  I'll be visiting Cincinnati in August.  Go Buckeyes!!  And Bengals and Reds :)

First time attending. Was fortunate enough to get Thursday and Sunday thanks to this forum and a buying group. Will be traveling from sunny Buffalo NY. Will be staying a full 7 days and I'm beyond excited.

That's awesome! I'm a 2009 Pitt grad, as is one of my travelling buddies!

It's been on my bucket list for a couple of years now, along with visiting the San Diego Zoo, so I'll get to check two things off. I don't know if I can afford for it to become an addiction!

I'm no Buckeyes fan (I went to college in Pittsburgh), but I do love my Bengals! And I actually will be passing through the Phoenix airport on my way to San Diego. I'm also a big Doctor Who fan. I've spent the last year and a half making my way through the classic episodes. Watching an episode from season 15 as I type!

I can finally say I'm coming from New Jersey, I have been unsuccessful for the past 5 years in obtaining badges, but I never gave up!

I'm coming from Los Angeles but it also took me 5 years of patience to finally secure a badge on my own. Last year I went as a guest after failing on my own in general reg. It's true, anything is possible.

I'll be flying in from Long Island. Scored badges in only my second year trying. After reading stories of how long people have tried before being successful, I'm definitely counting my blessings.

It definitely sounds like luck was with you, Robbie!

I'm coming from Scotland.  First time at SDCC, first time trying.  I feel ridiculously lucky.  I'm in Boston and San  Francisco beforehand too which should be awesome.
