Just wondering where everyone is traveling from to go to Animazement. I'm from the western North Carolina area, but it seems that I'm the only one from that area o_O *points out how many eastern North Carolina people she's seen.*

12-05-2003, 05:20 PM
Raleigh is where I'm coming from.

12-05-2003, 06:21 PM

Ah hah! I knew it :D Well I mean what can I expect especially when the con IS in eastern NC :P

Okay, time to tally up the scores.

Eastern- 4
Western- 1 (me) :P
Tennessee: 1

Hehe, hope no one minds me tossing the replies in this post ^_^ I'm just throwing around my curiosity.

12-05-2003, 11:11 PM
Im really eastern I guess, I live two hours away from raleigh and about 45 mins to an hour from the ocean. Its like really in the country but still close to the cities, so its a nice place, with the exception of only having dial up to use cause its out of area for everything else...but I can deal with it.

12-06-2003, 12:23 PM
im coming from tennessee ^o^ and its like about an 8 or if we drive really fast a 5 hour drive -______-; lol its worth it tho! *especially if santa brings me that portable dvd player if been wantin* lol ^^

12-06-2003, 09:05 PM
Raleigh, less then 1 mile from Quadrains house.

12-07-2003, 12:55 AM

I will be coming from the Washington, DC area. Plans have been confirmed! :cool:

01-23-2004, 04:17 AM
WAHHHH!!! I don't drive!!!! *bangs head on desk* STUPID!! STUPID!!! ME!!! In other words the likelyhood of me making it to this con is sadly slim unless I can work something out with a friend who is planning to go. Wish me luck PLEASE!!! If I make it to the con I'll be travleling from Wilmington, NC. (and it will hopefully be my first ever cosplay....*crosses fingers and prays* just have to decide who I want to be and beg a ride from my friend...or learn to drive and hope to get a car).....so hopeless....

01-23-2004, 07:21 AM

Oklahoma here.. really really long drive. i have nothing planned out yet.. and i just still got a driving permit!!! what the hay! ..but im working on it... it'll be my first cosplay if i got to go.. oh.. i still dont have any costume. *sight* ...oh well.. seeyall guys if a miracle happens.

01-23-2004, 11:16 AM
My friend Tristan refers to my town as the "Used car capital of the world" and it's truly horrible here. But I live in Rutherfordton, western southern North Carolina, in the foothills of the mountains, right on the border to SC. Three of my friends are going with me, you may know one of them. Michael, known as Dracos here on the boards... and two others, possibly a third. But yeah, I live in the boonies, it's eh no fun! Yesh.

01-23-2004, 10:28 PM
I'm coming from New York. Used to live in Roanoke Rapids, NC, aka the butthole of North Carolina.

01-24-2004, 02:31 PM

01-24-2004, 09:51 PM

01-26-2004, 07:47 PM
I'm only a couple of hours away, Winston Salem. Whoohoo! *waves flag unenthusiastically*

01-27-2004, 12:17 AM
Huzzah! 11-12 hour drive for me!

01-27-2004, 08:54 AM
I'm flying in from Michigan with a few friends.....hopefully!

01-27-2004, 12:46 PM
YAY!! I'm definately going! I'm even going to get my liscense for the express purpose of being able to drive to con. I just have to find someone to room with.

03-10-2004, 06:00 PM
Louisville, Kentucky, it'd be about 11 hours by car, but I'm flying, so with having to switch flights (sigh, I miss direct flights to anywhere in the eastern US) it's about 4 hours.

03-10-2004, 06:06 PM
Coming in from Maryland. ^^ Going to be driven there by some friends in Pennsylvania who are picking me up on the way. Whee.

03-10-2004, 07:53 PM
I can't believe there's no one else from Charlotte yet! This will be my first anime only con. I have done the Atlanta Comicon and HeroesCon thing to death, and I just don't think I'm mentally ready for another DragonCon this year.

03-10-2004, 08:25 PM
Coming from Maryland too...Driving is gonna be a bitch.

03-10-2004, 10:03 PM
Coming from Maryland too...Driving is gonna be a bitch.

well just realize that I'll be riding by car to Otakon this year. It's going to be a bitch going up there. Going to Nekocon was a hell of a ride espically during the night.

Oh yeah not to mention although AZ is like 30 min from Raleigh PEOPLE CANNOT DRIVE IN NORTH CAROINA!!!!!!! "Now...Where's my Bazooka?"

Ranma Saotome
03-11-2004, 07:52 PM
Wait... Noir, you're coming to AZ?!?!?! You rock girl!!!!!!!

Ah so true so true!! ph33r the beltline!! ph33r it!!! as well as ph33r I-40.
hmm last year going Otakon we got lost in DC area :waaaah:
I actually like the drive to Neko we take the back way and its peaceful!

03-13-2004, 04:16 PM
Tennessee here... Actually Middle Tennessee if you want specifics.. o.o This is going to be one hell of a road trip.. *one girl in the mists of a dominately populated car of males*

03-13-2004, 09:50 PM
Ah, I'll be driving to AZ and I'll be alone too, I just happen to meet everyone there, but its only a 2 hour drive from where I am. I drove to Nekocon and it was I think like 4 hours or something like that...and I was alone then *thank heaven for stereo* Thankfully I dont have to make the journey to Otakon alone, I'll be traveling with friends :D but the journey I dont mind, I enjoy drving, it makes me feel at ease, until I get lost that is, then I freak out..heheheh :thumbsup:

03-14-2004, 09:51 AM
im from tennessee as well ^-^ and im kinda in the middle maybe i guess well not so much but yeah its going to be a drive ;-;

03-14-2004, 11:06 AM
Coming from Charlotte, North Carolina! Yep, Animazement is the closes convention to me. I hope to have another Tenchi Panel this year. ^_~ GET READY!!!

03-14-2004, 03:22 PM
I'm comin from Philadelphia, PA :P
I got the carload of us down there in about 7 hours late-night driving last year, I plan on doing the same ;D

To quote Ranma, "Here he come, here come Speed Oshi" XD Avg Interstate speed, 80MPH!

03-14-2004, 05:11 PM
Oshi - Alyce, Becky, Brittany,...their little gang are who are giving me a ride to the con. I can just imagine them as they're driving down from PA to pick me up in MD....*suddenly Oshi's car zooms by in a complete blur* Everyone in the car: "What the hell was that? o_o!"

03-15-2004, 11:09 AM
Yeah, you are. I'm like 20 miles south of Ranma, in Brooklyn. ^^

Who knows? I may be helping Paul drive down this year. Hopefully we don't get into drag races. ^_^

03-16-2004, 03:45 PM

I look forward to seeing everyone that is going.. don't hesitate to kidnap me and do as you wish.. :p

03-18-2004, 11:55 PM
nooo, kas, they cant kidnap you and do what they wish, cause you have to work with me to kidnap others and do as we wish to them, or have you forgot the plan? I see lots of kidnapping and wild things happening...weeeheheheheh. ^_^

03-20-2004, 07:01 PM
Oh yea Nixxy-chan.. I almost forgot. We shall do all the kidnapping and stuff.. :bigtu: Wildness will insue and chaos shall reign supreme. I shall not eat a Wendy's either. :p

03-21-2004, 09:11 AM
I'll be coming from the Portsmouth/Suffolk area of VA. (I have 2 different homes, so two different places of point of origin.)

03-23-2004, 01:31 AM

I probably have you ALL beat for distance - I'm coming from Canada! My hometown is both farther north than NY and farther west than Michigan.

Crashing with a friend for the weekend, and Animazement is our major stop. :) :skidude2:

03-23-2004, 07:21 PM
hmm got a couple of friends from Boston and Toronto, Canada, coming too, so lots of people from far away places! ^_~

03-24-2004, 05:30 PM

Oh yeah For all who's driving from outta state...good luck.

I think dectectors are legal in NC. North Carolinian drivers bah. Nearly got into 3 accidents in the last two days.

03-29-2004, 01:58 PM
Coming from good old (sarcasm) Summerville South Carolina. I am not looking forward to sitting in the back seat on this drive. My best friend is sooooo lucky I let him sit in the front.
