Greetings Everyone,

Being our numbers in attendance are growing each year I wanted to start pooling who would be up for a $70 per night room at a Vacation Rental located near the heart of the action. I'm looking to book it from the 2nd - 5th. Each room sleeps 2 people and this place has 6 rooms. Additionally I'm certain that a few of us can bring blow up beds / cots / etc and use those in the living room for extra space. What I would really like to do is have a day where people can come over and mingle and bbq etc. 

Here's the place I'm looking at:

Who would be up for it? :)

Man, if I could afford the airline ticket (the room cost there isn't too hard for me to come up with), I'd be all over that. Sadly, the air ticket would set me back way too much. D=

Hm, that would be a nice option to trying to bus commute (which was pointless for just parties this year, since they're later after bus hours).  I'd be in, assuming that I can manage to get at least two (or more) day passes next time.  That's really my only catch, are getting tickets.  (3 years, totally unsuccessful)

Although it is a nice idea, I would not be interested.  I do not drive so going to Faldo is simple take ferry, walk as it is a 2 block walk.  Besides the cost of the room, would be costs of taxi's to get anywhere the  location is a fair distance from the convention center itself.  It definitely has scenic beauty as it is near parks, also close to Lake Washington, however nowhere near downtown Seattle, where convention and parties are held.

Nona, this is for our out of state folk, we'd still meet up at Fado's on Sunday night :). Just looking to get a base camp for a longer stay than overnight like we have been.

lol, I'd be game depending on a few things:

. How the CAD is doing

. Whether I decide to drive or fly. If I fly I would be bound by wherever the train goes, driving is no biggie cause I can get places

. If I decide to do SDCC this year (PAX is still a go but I'd be doing it on the super cheap)

So probably wouldn't be able to give a solid answer until Jan/Feb

If you meet yourself on the testing track, don't make eye contact. Lab boys tell me that'll wipe out time. Entirely.

If I understand - that is $70 per night per room, if so - color me there.  I probably won't be actually going to PAX - so if someone is then I can give up the room.  I just vacation, visit Nona, eat food, go to Fados, and enjoy the scenery. This is about 10 steps above the hotel I was in and it was o.k.    I just require my own room since I can't give up my night owl habits - as much as I try.  (This means I go to sleep around 3 a.m. and get up at 11 a.m. - although I have been known to watch the sunrise before nodding off.)

Going this year was one of the highlights of my year - and my year wasn't really too bad.  It was just with meeting Nona for the first time and then seeing everyone at Fados was just like a family reunion, and not the family reunion where you can't stand cousin Beth or Uncle George, but the type where you like everyone and feel happy to be there - wishing you could see them more often. 

So, yes, I'm coming back!

Fine Fog I see how it is already profiling in state vs out of state, does this have anything to do with me being Asuran? :).  Only kidding you for those coming from a distance it sounds like a good idea like I said it is in a very scenic area, also a great place to go on quiet  walks.  The reunion seems to get better every year, it was especially nice to meet so many.  Had a great time with Morigana, am now doing some research on purchase of a self defense cane, I mean if I have to use one may as well be multi functional.  You weren't bad either Fog, by the way what did you do with that video?

Hm, Twitter?  Not sure what you mean, but I'll touch base with you on this later via voice or something, because I'd really like to get tickets next year.  I had people I wanted to talk to this year and if I manage to get some of my plans off of the ground this year, then I will definitely need tickets for next year.

Follow PAX Prime's twiter. They announce tickets going on sale there first. If you don't follow the twitter by the time you find out they'll be sold out.
