Alright, I apologize if there's already one of these floating around, but I didn't see one, so here it is.

IF YOU NEED A ROOM
-Post when you'll be there (arriving Thurs or Fri, staying all weekend or just one night?)
-Post your age and gender (some people don't want young kids staying in their room full of twentysomethings, and some are weird about mixing genders)
-Post any other pertinent info.

IF YOU NEED A ROOMMATE
-Post what hotel you'll be staying at, and what nights
-How many people you are planning on putting in the room
-Tentatitive cost
-Any other info you feel is necessary (such as any age/gender limits for potential roomies)

IF YOU NEED A RIDE
-Post what city you'll be coming from
-When you are planning on leaving


General questions for those in need may be posted on the thread, but please keep any personal info such as addresses and phone numbers to PM's.

I'd also like to add that I have a friend in Fayetteville who needs a ride up on Thursday, and is willing to split gas cost. He just graduated from college and has a vehicle but it's a p.o.s. with bad gas mileage and can't be trusted to make it very far. I was going to give him a ride, then I realized just how far out of my way (Wilmington) it would be to pick him up and it's really not worth the extra time and money for him, so I'm trying to find a kind soul who'd like a cheaper gas bill and would be passing by Fayetteville on their way up Thursday. He'd be willing to meet at a gas station or something if you don't want to search for his house.

Let me know if you can do this.

Yeah...I was wondering the same thing. Then I thought 'no effing WAY am I driving that far out of my way to pick up Wes!' so I started this thread for the benefit of others as well as my own.

My room's booked, so all I can do is ask this:

ANY FAYETTEVILLE PEOPLE (or those passing through Fay) HAVE ROOM IN THE CAR? My buddy still needs a ride for Thursday to con and Sunday from con. :[ With the way gas is, it'll put a financial hurtin' on me if I have to go that far outta the way.

Sleeping in a car is a bad idea, I wouldn't suggest it at all.

Oh, I snagged one of the last rooms at the Sheraton. I had a room reserved around October, but he and I broke up, so that fell through. But I lucked out and got one of the last ones just a few weeks ago.

Sleeping in the car is a terrible idea. It's cramped and unsafe, and I"m pretty sure the cops wouldn't be too happy. There are always people needing roommates.

Yeaaaaah....I've travelled across the country in three days with one other person in a car full of stuff, napping at rest stops. Never doing that again.

I had to pull a knife on a guy who kept knocking on the window one night. It's still better not to put yourself at risk. What if he had one-upped me with a handgun? Plus, it'll be LATE MAY by Animazement weekend. It'll be hot as the dickens and that's a ton of EEW.

Also, thanks to the lovely TenkenTamago, I've got my friend's ride pretty much squared away.

True-- He could have taken your car, or you and your friend if he had that sort of weapon.
If you can't stay in the convention center hotel, there are others close by for the same price. It's either shell out 90 bucks to have a safe place to bathe and rest comfortably, or put your life at risk sleeping in a cramped, humid car.

We had two people drop out last minute, so that's five in our room, but we're looking for a couple more people to split the cost. For both nights, the total should be between $20 and $30. We're have reservations at the Sheraton so you'll be right where it's at the whole time :3 If you want to stay one night or two, that's fine, anything that will help us cut the cost a little would be awesome.

We're looking most preferrably for females within the teenage/young adult area, so like 15-25 or so, I don't think we'll be too picky.

So anyone need a room with at least five other girls? (I don't know if anyone would recognize me, but I'm the Squall from 2007 http://a877.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/23/l_e247e72678633982336571dd89e118bc.jpg )


So if anyone's interested please email me, preferrably, at EmbarChicken@aol.com



Otherwise, I'll see you at AZ =D

Ouch, last minute bad luck.

I'm outta a room at the Sheraton, and I was wondering if anyone has any space? I already asked someone, but just in case, I'll ask here- anyone willing to give space to three guys- quiet, well-mannered, etc.?
