Would Lyft/Uber be cheaper for you?  Honestly I don't drive so I don't know about cost comparisons.  But a friend of mine lives near Mission Valley and it was like $20 each way including tip.  So depending on price and location.... it miiiight be cheaper.

Worst comes to worse, there may be friends willing to stash stuff in their rooms.  I know people are super busy though so it's not always convenient.  But it's a thing to consider.

Too bad there weren't lockers nearby.  Some big train stations have them, but not the little trolley stops ):

I was 80% packed a week after I got badges. What’s wrong with us?

During my first SDCC I was like 80% packed like 6 months ahead of time.  I don't know man. I just don't know.  I've clearly become me relaxed now.  88 days...  see? I'm chill. I'm TOTALLY CHILL.  ???

Honestly same.  There are some things that stay in my travel bag year round.  But I need to open up everything, shake it out, maybe spritz some stuff* with Febreeze, and then go from there lol.


*note: the "some stuff" isn't clothes.  Those have been actually washed lol.

There are clothes (mostly shirts) that I only typically wear at Cons. They get washed and repacked in my Con duffle the day after I get back. So, I guess I'm in the same state of always being packed for the next year as well. That, and I always wash my Superman "beverage" thermos and repack it as well. :)

For me the stuff that stays is usually my toiletry bag (sometimes with extra toiletries, sometimes empty), my travel pillow and travel blanket, my extra wall plugs, and a stack of business cards.
