X_x Carefully! After shoving myself, whoever is coming with me, the parentals, three oversized weapons and many costumes, and all our luggage into a car.

^o^ But other than that I live in northern VA so the drive up to Baltimore is only around 2 hours if the traffic is kinda heavy. The ride up can be fun, it's exciting when you get close to the inner harbor!

We'll be traveling my car again this year from RI (well, the ppl I'm going w/ are from Massachusetts). Hopefully this year we can get a different vehicle. 9 hours in late July traffic crammed into a Honda civic w/ no AC is not fun "O_O".

Ah coolz. We ended up getting stuck in traffic so thats probably why it took so long, Plus we stopped real quick to get some lunch. We left the con around noon and I didn't get home till around 9 something at night O_o". And my freinds had farther to drive (MA). Hopefully It'll be a little better this year.

I'm taking the Amtrack train down to the station in Baltimore with my friends. It's a bit of a walk from the station but it's either 6 1/2 hours on the train or 10 hours on the bus. Yuck.

If I could travel by car I would definitley go for it. But it is a distance from Northampton Ma.

I'm driving down from NJ... the only question remaining is I will be actually be the one driving or if I get to sleep in the back seat of someone else's car.

It's not that bad though... I did it last year and surived. I think it depends with whom you drive down with

I'm having my friend Viki teleport me! Oh wait, that's probably a bad idea...

It's approximately a sixty minute drive for me, although I'll probably be riding shotgun this trip. ^_^;

Driving... from NH... ugh. My friend is doing most of that, but I might have to take over occasionally if she trusts me to drive her car! ^_^

Driving down from South Jersey ... It's about a 1-2 hour drive depending on traffic and if we decide to stop and be slackers. Lander is supposed to be flying up to Philly and riding down to Baltimore with me and Brandon (Commander Havok)

We're probably going to be crammed into Daala's Honda Accord along with 3 days worth of clothes and our costumes. If I do infact make the coffin that goes with my costume, I have NO idea where it's going in the car...

Back in 2000 and 2001 when I went as the PocketStation, I was crammed in the backseat. It sucked... LoL Could barely see/breath back there.

For us its about an hour's drive to the inner harbour. I always like the drive up to Baltimore, cuz all we talk about is Otakon... and our costumes and wht we went through making them.

Ah... I can honestly say Otakon is one the the big main events I look forward to all year long.
