Default Is Anyone thinking of going to PAX at the end of this month?

Penny Arcade Expo, in Seattle. I am really about ready to go, (last weekend of Aug) but all my friends going already booked their hotel rooms and tickets, so I dont have anyone to travel with or share a room with (if not it will be way too expensive!)

Anyone leaving from the Vancouver area? Carpool??

I'd love to go but I spent too much money already this past month. Need to save.

What days you looking at going? Down Friday back Sunday evening?

Let me do some number crunching I'll see if I have enough cash (I have a car also if needed).

Yeah I was thinking of taking Friday off work, so leaving early then (maybe late thursday?) and coming back sunday afternoon, back to work on Monday. Let me know!! I think hotels are cheap, a friend is staying at the Executive, and it was about $110 per night for a 3 person place. I can do some calling around?

Would love to go, but a) Calgary is a tad bit far away from the V of Uver, and b) getting ready to move at the end of the month, well, I hope to move at the end of the month. As long as landlords stop screwing around with me D:
