I've been going to Otakon since 1998, so Otakon 2003 will be the 6th year in a row that I attend. '98 was the only time I actually DROVE from San Francisco, CA to Arlington, VA (it was being held at the Hyatt, where Katsucon 2003 was held) and back.. I was helping a dealer friend, so we drove a RYDER truck cross-country for that weekend, and then back to CA for San Diego Comic Con the following weekend.. only took 45 hours driving, with stops to buy gas, eat, add oil & coolant, etc. I always enjoy talking about that great adventure a few years ago..

Otakon 1999 was the first year it was held at the Baltimore Convention Center, and has grown a LOT since then. Since they now started to use the ENTIRE convention center, it's quite a hike (for me) to go from one-end to the other, about 25-30 times a day!! So each year it makes it harder for me to get pics of all the cosplayers who attend, but I do my best. Otakon is always a challenge for me, and I welcome it. Every year I take more and more pics, so I can't imagine what the total # of pics I will take this year will be..
