How far are you coming from?

Friends Of CCI Forum: Map 2014 UPDATED!
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Hi, everybody! It's been a hell of a year, right?

Well, here we are with now less than ONE HUNDRED less days to go before San Diego Comic-Con 2014 and, as I agreed with myself, I would come back and update the map and links for this thread.

By this point, we should all know if we are able this year to make it to the Con in July, what with Badge sales all done and dusted and accommodation getting sorted, slowly but surely. So, to that end, I've gone through and added all the names and locations to the map that needed putting in and we now should have a comprehensive map of the truly international audience of this amazing event!

Don't forget - while the title of the thread is 'Where are you coming from?', it's more of a Friends Of CCI members map (I'm wondering if I should change that...) so you don't necessarily have to be attending SDCC in 2014 to be listed on here. Do check and see if all the data I've entered is correct, especially if, for example, you may have moved since this map was last put together.

And, of course, if you'd like to be added to the map, simply reply to this thread with the location you're coming from - we're not wanting street names but if you could add a city, that would make the map a little more accurate.

I'm glad people have still been taking part in this thread and I hope to see a few more pins added as we get closer to July!

You can find the map - and share it with your friends - here:

Where are you coming from? Where's the furthest that a line buddy you've made friends with has come from? And do you still keep in touch??

I'm coming from Northern California. Oh, so far away! ;)

Dogberry comes from Singapore. That's the furthest away I've heard... nearly halfway around the world!

I guess it's pretty obvious from my name - my girlfriend and I live in Anchorage, Alaska

Not a big Comic-Con fan base up here, whenever I wear my tshirt I usually get that blank look but once in awhile someone will say, oh cool!!
