Well, not actually flying TO the hotel ;)

Anyways, I was considering driving and then I checked southwest prices to get down there, and it's pretty cheap. Considering it would probably cost me at LEAST $60 round trip for gas plus wear 'n tear in general, I decided to jump at the chance and fly down there!

So if anyone is interested at southwest.com, my total round trip fare is only $73.00, so if you'd like to jump on that deal instead of spending the same amount on gas then do it!

It would be nice to kinda see people along the way as well, but we know that might be iffy lol. The spots are filling up quick, so check it while you can. Oh also, in order to get the good deal on BOTH days, I had to fly back on monday, so if you are willing to do that, then great! Otherwise, sunday fare is $60 ;_;.

I'm taking the 8am flight out of oakland, so if anyone will be there at that time, let me know and we can have a pre-ani-magic meet up! lol.

Those of you who got your flight a wee bit later... i'm jealous.. I am NOT a morning person O_O

I have to drive to AM due to the sheer amount of crap I have to take with me. And BR props are not the best things to take on a plane.

I'm flying but to burbank and then getting a car. it was 26 each way. I think the the total was hundred forty something for 2 people. The boyfriend wants to fly and then rent a car down there so I am not gonna fight it.

Kimiko, are you going to LAX? I'm taking the 7:50am from Oakland to Burbank. Maybe I'll see ya at the oakland airport!!

Mmm. Am tempted, but i'm most likely driving there since I won't know if i'll be going or not until a month before the con.

I'll be driving down there myself late Thursday night, and it'll take me about 5-5.5 hours to get there. I can manage since it's not as long as going to Anaheim or Long Beach, and if I drive between 75-80mph, I'll be there before I know it. :) I might get a PT Cruiser for a rental car to drive in style, and hopefully my FC3S costume will fit in the back-seat. :skidude2:


I'm driving to Animagic, but certainly NOT to the Vegas Comic Con 4 weeks after Animagic. THAT one I'm flying to.. :D

Depending when I'll be in the area. I might be due back in SoCal that week for visits....and I'll just drive up to Lancaster.

However, most likely, I'll be going with k_valentine. Will trying to schedule the appointment later in October...hopefully.

Usagi Mylene: Yes I am going to LAX, we'll probably be there around the same time:) Do you know what times the shuttles pick up? Maybe we'll be on the same one ^^ Oh nevermind, lol i just noticed you said you were flying to Burbank :D. I was considering doing that too, but I'd rather take the shuttle than have to get a car, which is why I am flying to begin with lol

K_Valentine: I know what you mean X_x, I have a ton of stuff to bring, I remember all the stuff I brought to fanime, and it will be double this time around. I'll have to bring my humungo single suitcase that 2 people can fit in (it seems), or bring 2 regular sized suitcases plus 2 carry ones O_o. It would be nice to have my car, but I kinda wanted to get there early, and Friday is the earliest I could go.

Skeptrix: What time are you flying in? I'll be flying to LAX and then taking the shuttle to the hotel. I believe I'll be in around 930am or so, and then waiting around depending on when the shuttle arrives (really needs to call the hotel to find out the shuttle times). Since you are coming from Hawaii though, I doubt you'd be there that early O_O

Ryu: do you have a checking account? You can probably do it by check or something if you call it in.

Eurobeat: aww come on, you don't want to drive to Vegas?? lol It's only what, 9 hours? :P

Ryu, I paid for my New York tickets with a check. They give you a address and you mail it off. Not sure about MO tho' I think they told my friend no but then again it was for 3 tickets at 600 total.

Kimko, it's cheaper to fly to burbank 26 bucks. How much is it o LAX? 30 each way? But we need to rent a car anyways. Somehow, my job gave me a four day weekend so I'm going to either Disneyland or Six Flags after the con. *jumps for joy*

Cosplaying and then Disneyland (Six Flags)!!! Can't get any better then this.....

I'll be driving down and back up. No problem! (Well, except for how much stuff I'll be bringing with me...)

I'd rather drive now, and I was going to ask Kimiko if I could get a ride with her, but since she's flying now, and I don't think I can afford the plane tickets, anyone would like to give me a lift? and Kimiko, I don't have a checking account and that's a long story ;_;

Usagi: Oh I see.

I am so driving down there, I just was able to fix my cigarette lighter so I able to use my laptop on the way down there (to bad ill be driving the vehicle and wont to get to watch any of the movies) Any way I would offer someone a ride but I not sure if my friend is going and how much crap she going to take, last time is was only half a set another time I didnít have a back set at all, so I kind of in the dark and wont be able to offer a ride to anyone until she finish packing and loading up the in my back seat, If I can take someone they would have to pack light and not take that much room up, also they would have to be staying for the whole three day, pulse one extra day cuz I leaving for it on the 2nd of October

LOL Oh sorry about my driving,

Yeah I keep you posted RyuhayabusaDOA2 it just I not sure what she going to take with her and already just with my stuff I fill 1/3 of the back seat. I get back to you about it. Unforchanitly I will not know how much space will be left until she finish her costume. So my best advice just in case she pack everything at the last moment if anyone else offers you a ride take it cuz like I said I really not sure at this point
