My ex and I went to our first PAX in 2010 as a pre-wedding honeymoon. We went to Prime every year up through 2015 and then split a month later. I don't think I'm in a spot emotionally where I can go as a solo attendee, but I was thinking I might apply to be an Enforcer so I can give back to the convention in some form. I intend to apply if they open recruitment, but I was wondering what people would suggest in preparation.
I'm assuming it would be best to book a hotel when passes go on sale. If I have enough vacation to cover any needed days before, during and after, what would I be looking at for a total reservation time? Are there any other major factors that I should be considering?
