Google Map: Where Are You Coming From?

Link to Google Map Collaboration

This is a map to let people tag where they're coming from, and to give some details about when/how they're getting to PAX East. There was one for Prime, and it was really helpful for meeting up with other people from my area.

To use, please tag your general location (not your specific house, for obvious reasons) with an Airplane placemark if you're flying, Car placemark if you're driving, etc etc. Also, add your forum screen name or other details if you'd like, just so that other PAXers can collaborate with you on various nefarious PAXy plans :)

See you all at East!

Edit: The link works now. Sorry about that.

    No worries, should have said it up top.

    On the left hand side should be a button marked "edit". Once you hit that, you can tag a placemark just by clicking on the map (and dragging it around). Then just click on the placemark to edit it, change the icon, etc.

    I'd recommend using the bus terminal or airport you're flying out of as your location to make picking a location simple without being too specific.

    may i suggest a change to this map's title? i've also been editing the pax east point of interest map, and they both have the exact same title. i'm afraid my computer will be confused and the train station near my house will become a point of interest. perhaps 'pax east 2011 travel map'? just a suggestion.

    After several hours of arcane rituals and unholy chanting, the name of the map has been changed from

    "PAX East 2011"

    to

    "PAX East 2011 Travel"

    Awesome Squill...I see you're driving, any reason why? The JetBlue Flight out of Richmond is crazy cheap...just a thought.

    It's just cheaper to get the 4 of us out there by driving. Plus I also have the convenience of having my vehicle with me (more storage space, I can drop stuff off at my vehicle during PAX, I can leave my lunch in there so I don't have to carry it around with me all day, etc). Plus it makes for an a fun little road trip! I'm going to be taking the long scenic route to avoid the NYC traffic.

    I'm just going to dread the drive home, 12 hours of driving after going to PAX on Sunday is going to be rough.

    Meles, I flew to Seattle for Prime. Did you REALLY think I wasn't going to show up to the one that's 5 hours' drive from my hometown? And I'm bringing 3 friends with me.

    Thus you folks shall NEVER be Canuck-less! BWAHAHA!

    I added myself to the map earlier this week. I'm taking the bus from NH to Boston. I'm not sure I used the right icon, but it looked bus-like.

    This space intentionally left empty.

    There's actually a number of Ohioans taking the train (thread here), but it might be a bit far for you to join because all the stops are up on the lake.
