After attending from 2008-2016 as a San Diego resident (lived in the Clairemont area), I moved (back) to San Jose in January. Been banking all the vacation time since day one of my new job to drive down to southern California for ~10 days so I can do the D23 and SDCC double dip. Will be staying with my former housemates. It's going to be my first time back since moving so looking forward to catching up with friends before the craziness kicks in.

I am always impressed with the folks who come internationally for SDCC.  Comicon is an amazing show, and I can definitely understand why people would travel to come here.  I have met a number of folks over the years who have flown in from Australia, Europe, and Asia.  It's really amazing.  Hoping that all of you long-distance travelers have a great trip! 

As for me, I'm a local, but often have friends and family from the East Coast who make the trip out here to go to comicon.

Canadian Maritimes here; this will by my fifth SDCC. I'm counting the days to get out of our rainy summer.

Last year was the first year I had missed SDCC in 11 years! Typically I would drive or take the train down from LA.

This is the first year I'm coming in from Tennessee. I will have to fly through Atlanta on my way.

Fourth SDCC this year :) Previously I was coming from South Carolina (well, 2015 I arrived in San Diego via Hawaii because I'd been on vacation) but I recently relocated to Orlando FL. At least now I get to take a direct flight, though :)
I do stuff and things. Stuff. And things.

Congratulations on your first comic-con!

As it turns out, we're going to Iceland for the first time pretty much right after SDCC. Are you  coming to the Tuesday meetup by chance? Would love to chat a bit.

Thanks  :)

Is that the pre-SDCC event in LA? I think I saw something about that but we have no plans with that yet. We are still waiting to hear if we have tickets Tuesday night to a TV recording, so that day's still up in the air. We are driving down to San Diego on Wednesday, we can meet-up at the convention sometime if you'd like - always happy to advise on Iceland.

Awesome. There's a casual forum meetup Tuesday outside of the Hilton Bayfront, but let's definitely try to chat a bit during SDCC. I'll send you a PM.

I'll be coming from Colorado in 2018! My friend from high school is coming for the first time. My two other roommates are coming from Chicago and Virginia.

I hope you have a blast! I always get extra excited when I see people coming from extra far away.
