Stacy is going and needs to room with someone, I believe.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Ok, folks. I've got time constraints with work, so I actually booked a plane ticket (Southwest had a pretty good deal) and will meet you guys down there. Wish I coulda traveled via car--would have been a blast with you crazy folks. I arrive in San Jose at 2:30, so I'll hook up with you at the convention.

Also, they were running low on rooms at the hotel, and I wasn't sure where how things were developing here, so I booked one of the last rooms I could get--a single queen bed with a pull-out couch. I've got it from Thursday night to Sunday morning. Since I used Expedia, I've already paid for it. I'm certainly willing to share the room, though. It was expensive, but cheaper than the World Fantasy rates!--Josh

I've updated the first post to include all the latest info on cars and rooms, to the best of my knowledge. Thank you to everyone for keeping us updated.

And hooray that Eric and Heidi are coming, and Janci is probably coming. That's awesome.

As for panels, I filled out the survey but they haven't gotten back to me.

Janci and Isaac have taken the two extra spots in my car, so my car is full.

I've adjusted the list accordingly.

Does this mean Janci's in for sure?

I'm already sharing a room with Eric's girlfriend, Heidi, but the more the merrier if Stacy would like to room with us. We'd love to have her.

And Eric? Did Heidi make reservations or do you want me to do that? I was going to do it today, but didn't want to double book us if it's already been done. And yep, I need a ride. Any cars left to ride share?

I've heard a rumor that Marion Jensen (Matt Buckley) is potentially coming, so everyone bug him until he caves in.

Well, nobody is bugging me. I'm not sure what to think of that. :)

I've just registered, so I'm more than likely going to go. I can drive, if needed. I've also got a van I may be able to swing into bringing. It's a late model Honda that seats 6 comfortable, or 8 uncomfortably.

I've also got a closet of board/card games. Make a request; if I have it, I'll bring it.

Ooh, definitely bring Race for the Galaxy and Agricola; those are two I've wanted to try. I'll bring some good ones like Space Alert and Small World, and of course Battlestar Galactica.

Ooh, I've heard good things about Space Alert.

I bought Battlestar Galatica, and we played it with my gaming group. We only got 2 cards where Cylon ships entered the board. They were all clumped at the bottom of the deck (we fired the shuffler). I'd like to try it again with some actual bad guys on the board.

Will definitely bring Race for the Galaxy, as well as Agricola. RFtG is probably my number 2 game right now (after Dominion).

I liked Dominion. Very fun. BSG is great when everything goes nuts. Dan and I have had some great games like that.

Hey, just saw this thread, new to the forums and all.  I think I know some of you from LTUE and Brandon's 318 class at BYU, not sure who's who though. 

Anyway, my name's Joe Vasicek, and I'm driving up to San Jose for the convention with a few other friends who are going.  As of now, I've got at least three other people driving up with me, with two other people who may or may not come. 

My car seats 6 people comfortably, 7 people legally, and I'll be staying with friends (I served my mission in San Jose and know a lot of people there).  I think one of the girls riding up with me already booked a room, not sure though--I can find out and ask her if she did and if she's open to sharing with other people.  As for the other passengers, I think they'll be staying with friends too, though I'm not sure.

Of course, if you're short on cash, you could always go for what the locals call the "motel 22"...yeah right, bad idea, it's basically an all-night bus ticket on the 22 line that runs continuously throughout the city.  :P Ah, I love San Jose!

Joe, let me know more exactly how many people are riding with you, how many seats are available, and how many people need/have a hotel room, and I'll add it to the list at the start of the thread.

If worst comes to worst I have a couch/front room floor if anyone needs a cheap option.
