View Full Version : Those from the bay.. how are you getting down to AnEx?

05-25-2003, 10:03 PM
Just out of curio, as my bro had been planning to go to southern california for a while (to see friends and stuff) it was actually pretty easy to get an OK for this one..

So how are you going down there? We'll probably just get a bus (depending on the price), or a plane, not too sure yet.

Anyone else going bus/plane? Lemme know :]

My little cousin is coming up from southern california for Fanime the weekend before AX and I'm leaving with her and her parents on the last day of the con and staying with them for a week until the end of AX. I guess I'm taking a plane on the way back. Not too sure about that yet.

05-26-2003, 11:25 PM
I'm simply going to drive 6 hours back and forth to get there. Currently I'm alone. I may consider taking another/others. I'm leaving Weds, returning Sun departing from Milpitas. PM if interested.

Smokers need not PM.

05-26-2003, 11:28 PM
heheh. that's alright this one I can afford the ride to/fro.

Umi you're insanely lucky to do a tradeoff like that lol :D

05-27-2003, 12:57 AM
I think we're taking a plane.. Last time my group drove down to SoCal, the car broke down on the way back (Ani-Magic last October), so we're all in no rush to drive down again. ^_^; Thankfully flights within CA are usually pretty cheap.

05-27-2003, 01:06 AM
Maybe we can meet at the airport then XD

It'd rock having friends on the plane :)

05-27-2003, 01:28 AM
flying via southwest from oakland airport

05-27-2003, 01:30 AM
Mord! That's the only way to do it!!!

Southwest = soo cheap but soo good :D

05-27-2003, 01:32 AM
yup! and since it's a short flight they wont stop a million bloody times.

05-27-2003, 01:37 AM
Too true. I'll look into it and see if maybe I can do it that way myself lol.

05-27-2003, 01:39 AM
Lovely short NorCal-SoCal flights. Southwest is probably what we're doing too, out of Oakland. ^^ Just gotta bug my friends to get tickets soon. x_x;

05-27-2003, 01:43 AM
lol well if anything wen you're at the airport look for a tall guy with a pointy green hat (no I won't wear the rest of my costume tho that'd be freaking hilarious)

Heck it'd make things easy on the security checkpoint huh.

the only thing that sucks about short flights is you only get peanuts.. hopefully they give out free soda too :drink:

05-27-2003, 02:04 AM
Usually they give drinks for California flights. ^_^ I'm used to them. I barely leave this state. ^^;

05-27-2003, 02:06 AM
Yeah what cracks me up is how the flight attendants never have change for a 20 ;)

05-27-2003, 01:55 PM
I'm with MordSith..me flying out of Oakland on Southwest with her ^_^

05-30-2003, 08:40 PM
lol. Maybe I join you two then ;)

06-25-2003, 04:51 PM
^^ I'm driving down on Wednesday nite! Same way I've been doing it for 3 years!

06-25-2003, 05:38 PM
Heh, no plane anymore.. just me and my friend driving all the way down.. @____@; the things I do to see friends..

06-25-2003, 05:41 PM
Lucky friend ^_^.

06-25-2003, 05:52 PM
The one driving me? ^^;

06-25-2003, 05:54 PM
sure. It's nice to have someone to talk to don't you think? :D

06-25-2003, 06:03 PM
Err yes... But lucky? ^^;

06-25-2003, 06:06 PM
Oh come on michi, if I was driving into southern california that way I'd be honored to have you with me :D

Then again, I need my license, so I'll be driving there (from las vegas, since we're moving @ the end of summer there to our bigger house) ;)

Talk is a good way to make time pass fast, besides the plane takes forever and is a PITA as far as security is concerned.

06-25-2003, 06:28 PM
Are you going to AX?

06-25-2003, 06:33 PM
Not this year. The plans got axed at the last min thanks to my bro :(

He originally planned to go there in august, I asked if we could move it up to july and he was more then happy to do that.. but then my mom helped him change his mind.

*shrug* oh well :) Patience is good

06-25-2003, 07:24 PM
Looks like my plans have changed. I'm actually flying from Oakland to southern california this friday to stay with my aunt for a couple days before me and my cousin go to AX. Going back the following monday.

Let's hear it for Southwest and reasonible flight prices ^^

06-25-2003, 07:28 PM
I cant go to the expo this year *sniff* My vista cruizer died after fanimecon. T_T im crushed. I wont be able to go this year....but i might get a deloran out of this chaos ehehehehehehehehehehe ^_^

06-25-2003, 07:34 PM

I'm taking off on wednesday at around noon with my friend alice & her siblings. Not sure if I'm looking forward to the 8 hr drive ^^;

06-28-2003, 11:38 PM
its not a bad view when you drive......when we go to the LA area we ALWAYS drive on HWY 5, *since its near me* and we take that road all the way down......its long ..but nice....

06-29-2003, 05:08 AM
Lucky Umi taking a plane. :p

Baka Neko, it's not really eight hours.. Well, I dunno about leaving at noon.. ^^; but last year we left at 4 am and got there at 10 am. :D So it's like six.. Sometimes. XD

06-29-2003, 05:22 AM
Driving from Palo Alto...i feel so nekkid without my car
and from my experience from the time i leave the house to the airport till i get to the hotel in LA.......is 6 hours
so....why not drive
I Also used to deliver pizza for Pizza Chicago....sooooooooo im used to driving all day

06-30-2003, 12:03 AM

06-30-2003, 01:26 AM
I'm actually already in so. california since I'm staying with family for a couple days before AX. I haven't taken a flight in a really long time and didn't know they made you take off your shoes before going through security o.O;;;

Mimiru: Wear sandals or something else that is easy to slip off and on ^^

06-30-2003, 01:38 AM
There was a guy with a bomb in his shoe before.

06-30-2003, 01:43 AM
I know but it just seems a little excessive... if he hid it in is underwear, would we all have to strip down naked T__T;;; Yes I know that's not likely just ranting slightly because my ride took me to the airport early and I was hanging out all by myself ;_; </end random rant>
