I'm traveling from the SDSU area of San Diego. The past two years I just use the trolley boarding from the SDSU stop. Takes about 45 minutes that way, would be 10 minutes by car. I've considered getting a hotel downtown just for the experience and convenience!

Yep I'm insane...I'm travelling all the way from Melbourne, Australia lol! Well that's if I get into comic con. But either way, I'm still travelling round the US/Canada for holiday round that time! Would be a bonus to get into comic con!

I will be attending my first con this year, coming from an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean known as Guam.  Draw a line south from Tokyo, draw a line east from Manila, where the two lines cross, you find Guam.  Offshore to the east is the Marianas Trench.  The Aussies and Kiwis still have me beat distance wise, but my total flight time will be the same or greater than a Sydney-LA or Melbourne-LA flight due to layovers.  I usually go through Narita before going back to 'Merica.

Wow! I bumped into someone from Australia last year at Comic-Con, so you're not the only one. It's pretty fun just finding out how far everyone has come for the event.

I'm not much of a traveler though, as I live just an hour away from Comic-Con. Still a fun mini-mini road trip though!

A lovely older couple sat next to me in Hall H Sunday was from Melbourne, Australia. I struck up conversation when I saw her playing Plants vs Zombies 2 on her iPad. It wasn't being released for North America for another 2 weeks. :)

I saw a while back that someone from the east coast was considering/had decided to drive to San Diego, I hope their plan works out. Now I am considering going to Vegas for two days after SDCC to use some room vouchers. I was hoping that Amtrak serviced that area, but it does not. You can travel on Amtrak then have to take a bus the rest of the way. I have considered driving and leaving the rental car in Vegas, but I think they charge you more when that happens.

Now....think it's possible to get a ride going east to Vegas for two from a fellow SDCC'er? The plan is to leave San Diego sunday evening and fly out of Vegas tuesday back home. Just a thought, but advice much appreciated.
