I'm going. I already bought autograph and photo op tickets for Scott Bakula, Jolene Blalock, Malcolm McDowell, Leonard Nimoy and Michelle Forbes.
I might get more, but I need to see the schedule first.

Greyhound is by far the cheapest.  150 roundtrip isnt that bad.

If I could go by ground I would, but I'm located over the Pacific ocean and I'm not that good of a swimmer  :cry:

600 for a gold pass.
$550 for round trip air fair.
$1200 for a room.
$400 for photos and autographs.
$500 for food and drink for the week.
First time at a convention and seeing the Experience before it closes - Priceless.

At least, it better be. I'm going to be broke for a loooonnng time. :cool:

We are going. We did the gold ticket last year. This time, we are just doing the general admission. This is our 8th convention in last than two years. We've seen most of the guest multiple times, so we aren't concerned about being super close up.

I am disappointed that they sold out of Michael Dorn autograph tickets, though. I really wanted some of those.

I'm surprised they sold out of Michael Dorn tickets, he's been a regular at the Vegas con for years.  Do you have a Comic Con near you??  Dorn has appeared at the ones by me, and I got some cool autographs from him for only $20 total.....

:honorable:

No, we live in Arkansas. No Comic-Cons held near here.

Yes, we know the feeling!  We were planning to go next year too, but plans were pushed up.
We're driving from Iowa...  nice long road trip...  time to break out those audio books.  lol
As we haven't been to this Con before, we wanted to find out if there were Room Parties at this one?  Also, Is the Klingon Empire represented here?   :honorable:

I'm going, as you know from my thread asking for advice.  I can't wait to see all of the people and feel like I've come home.  It's going to be awesome!!
