    Depending on the order of arrival, you might just look for the really huge crowded table with a bunch of loud geeks at it.

    But also, I will post a picture of the shirt I'll be wearing a couple days beforehand. I'll try to pick one that will stand out.

    Wearing a PAX shirt should be easy to spot.

    Currently, the only thing I have which could qualify as a PAX shirt is one of those offensive bright orange ones they were handing out as swag last year, which I refuse to wear even in private, let alone in public. You know, the ones that say "if this shirt doesn't smell, I'm not gaming hard enough".

    Now, after the con, I'll have an awesome WCTT shirt.

    Anyway, I won't be wearing a PAX shirt, but that doesn't mean I won't be wearing something awesome and culturally appropriate.

    As much as I would love to come to this, I have no ride and no monies for the foodings. I'll see you all at PAX, though! (Look for the guy at the concert with ENFORCER on the back of his shirt =3=)

    That is a shame. I saw you in the "Driving from central cali" thread, and thought about PMing you but then I figured you wouldn't have the funds. Sorry to hear I was right on this one..

    Please pencil me in for the Post-PAX meetup. I'm coming into town anyways to see Chris Hardwick at the Punchline.

    Also, put me in for the Pre-PAX party.

    I have made reservations for our PrePAX Pizza. I overstated our numbers somewhat, so if all the [tentative] people come with all of there +s there should still be room for 5 or so more.

    Just mention Penny Arcade Expo to the guy when you get in.

    Yes, precisely.

    (Yes it is the band. I named it that way just for fun, I didn't expect anyone to be confused for real.)

    after their last concert at PAX I thought they may have been taking a short break (especially with one of the members moving on to other projects)...you were not confusing they way you said it...I just really didn't think they would be performing so soon....and in Sacramento....and for only $10 :?

    Seeing as it is now two calendar days until this happens, I have updated the first post with links to a map with driving directions from your choice of two I-80 exits and a link to the product page of the shirt I plan on wearing. So go to the spot I marked on the map and sit down at the table where the guy in that shirt is.

    I'm flying to Sacramento and back for work on Wednesday Sept 1st. Anyone flying up to Seattle the afternoon of the 1st? Just thought I'd ask, it'd be awesome if there were fellow PAX goers on my return trip!

    I would like to apologize in advance if this is inappropriate for this thread. I'm posting here because time is short and I could really use the help. This is a repost from my other thread, I hope you don't mind.

    So, I already have a ride up to PAX this year, but I'm looking to upgrade. Here's the deal: Due to scheduling restrictions, we're planning to leave Sacramento around 1 or 2 in the afternoon on thursday, which by my calculations puts us in Seattle at 4 am at the earliest. This isn't zomgwtf super terrible, but I'm an Enforcer and have a 9 am shift that friday. Hence my trepidation.

    If anyone will at any point be even remotely close to Sacramento and is planning on being in seattle on or before PAX thursday, please let me know. There are treats for anyone who provides assistance!

    (I am familiar with the CCST but cant afford the ticket)

    PS I am moving to Austin IMMEDIATELY after PAX (as in, flying out of Seattle) and will therefore not require a return trip.

    Thanks very much!

    Superkawaiineko: I think that just about the best I could do is to help you catch the coast starlight. Tickets for that are up to $137, though. But maybe somebody else in here could have more to offer.

    Repost Edit: Bump for 22 hours remaining before prepax event.

    asldfbeysrklj! Wrecked my car in an accident just the other day. Tried to find a ride for tomorrow but have had no luck, so with much sorrow, I will have to bail on tomorrows get-together. :(

    (unless someone lives in/is driving from the natomas area in sacramento that can pickup/dropoff?...don't want anyone going out of there way for me. It's no biggie (no offense to anyone :P ))

    I don't know how many folks are doing the Buttoneering, but just in cases I will bring some of my own, The Boyfriend's and Small Lady's (since I have all three still in my possession and got permission from the two.)

    2. Kaji
    3. +1
    4. Blindside044
    5. Hexcore
    6. +1

    17. VonXWolfenstein
    18. MistyHide
    19. ChronicleX (I guess must have)
    20. Millislim
    21. +1
    If you (or someone associated with you) were there and you don't see yourself on this list here, please post and help end my confusion.
    Also I know you guys took photos. So post those here, too.
