Phila, PA....2014 will be first time attending and finding this forum via FB was great. I am getting so munch info that I probably wouldn't receive. This really helps in planning for a visit. So much to be informed about I follow everything I can.

Thanks FriendsoFCCI  :-*

I'll be coming from NJ. 2014 will be my first time. I've been unsuccessful for the past 2 years obtaining badges. This board/forum has been very helpful in planning for next year. Thanks!

Hi! So... I hope to be making it out there from ol PA off on the east coast! And, in light of that, I really want to drive cross country to SDCC since that way I can load up my car with all kinds of swag and not have to mail it back to myself (also, then I can bring blankets if I want to camp out, more crap to get signed, and don't have to worry about smuggling food through airport security). So if anyone wants to carpool from the east coast area let me know, since it doesn't make any financial sense to drive by myself instead of flying, which is cheaper per person. I'm willing to meet/ pick up anyone within a 5 hr drive (so, NY, OH, MD area) before we head west.

Welcome! It's a long drive, but I'm sure you'll fid it a fun roadtrip, especially with company.

Wait, didn't they make a movie about a SDCC roadtrip? And on the way they met an alien? Huh... ;)

Alameda, CA , an island in the SF Bay Area for those who are not familiar with Northern California.

I used to live in Alameda! On the actual island too, not on Bay Farm Island (which is really a peninsula... freaky...). It's one of the many places I've lived in Alameda County.

I used to do that! Now i drive. Much easier to bring down costumes and take home swag. :D

I'm pretty conscious of what i pick up due to my space issues for sure.  So the Captain America shield had to stay @ SDCC that year.  :(

Pittsburgh!  We will fly into LAX, spend a few days, then drive down for the con.  If we stay downtown we'll ditch the rental car and if not we'll stay South of the city during the con and drive in each day like we did last year. 

I do hope we get a downtown hotel because we missed the swag exchange meet up last year due to being exhausted and already back at our hotel Sunday night.  We would have had to find parking all over again and doing nothing felt sooooooooooo gooooooooood.

I can empathize with that! But just so you know, after the Con is over, the parking clears out, just like the hotels.
