    Aye, less than 12 hours to go! It's going to be good to meet you all! I'll see you all when I meet up with you at the Pacific Science Center! Remember, head to the WSCTC Shuttle/Coach parking no later than 8:15am or you'll miss the rides to the Boeing Factory!

    Would anyone be able to tell me exactly where this Shuttle/Coach parking area is? I took a walk around the centre today and did not see any signs. Is it just the area out front on Pike St.? Or is it more on 8th? Let me know.

    Thanks

    Update: NVM...found the motorcoach PDF that VThorn posted. Used that along with what I saw today. Good to go. See you there peeps.

    I have printed all my materials and will have a highlighter at the ready!

    However, I am slightly confuzzled. On Thursday, are drivers meeting at the bus parking lot and then we're all walking to Pike OR are we all meeting at Pike? OR are we all meeting at the bus parking and then driving to Pike?

    The market is not more than a stones throw away from the WSCTC. But that could just be my perspective since I'm use to wandering aimlessly downtown.

    Ah, good question! I think we should meet at the bus parking on Thursday, if for nothing else than to make sure that we all actually meet up/find a car to ride with for the rest of the trip. I was going to go "whatever you can do" for it, but now that you mention it I think it might be hard for us to meet back up if it's catch-as-catch-can in terms of initial meet-up.

    So yeah, on Thursday let's all meet at the bus Parking at WSCTC, given that fact. =)

    Good morning campers! Its about that time! Time to get up, get moving, and get ready to TOUR!

    So, I'm getting ready, gonna be heading out the door for the bus in about 45 minutes!

    I've got most of the info printed out, so thats good.

    I will be wearing a red shirt with a large, sphereical controler pictured, jeans, my dark green 1UP hat, and my gold backpack with buttons. I'll also probably have my PAX badge on, just for even more visibility!!

    I can't WAIT to meet all you cool cats!

    Aye, I think Neptune is it, that's the tour's arrangement. Someone mentioned that there's a closer place, but I had already finalized the schedule out.

    Aye, hopefully you guys are on your way! It's only 7:03am EST... I'm getting ready to head to the airport myself so I can meet you guys there... but yeah, get to the first point (WSCTC) by 8:15! =)

    You mean so far so AWESOME!

    Day 1 of the Tour was a resounding success! There were some delays, but nothing major, and we made it to every place on the list. ITS TIME FOR ROUND TWO!

    I had a great time at the aquarium and Gameworks.

    The small contingent of us that went to see Hamlet 2 had a great time. We all loved the movie and we also
    got to see it for a super low low price...

    I will see you rancid filth babies tomorrow at 9AM inside the WSCTC entrance.

    Posting from Pre-Pax MMT. We are in the book depository hanging out, waiting for the Porkfry film crew.

    This place is large and portions of it are very very red.


    Also...there are lots of books.

    So in summation, the mystery tour was a great success!

    I'm also looking forward greatly to running and/or participating in an MMT: Boston in 2010! It's such a great city, and one that I know a little better than Seattle. =) (Though now that we've gone through pretty much all of Seattle on this tour and during PAX, I do feel better about helping out with a tour next year if I can make it! =) )

    Picture 16: We take a break to play charades.

    Picture 12: eye-shuh is displaying her lack of underwear, yet I am looking in the opposite direction. I'll have to make sure to watch her more closely next year...

    Picture 11: Oh great. Now I am walking away from eye-shuh's stunning display.

    Picture 09: Is he really throwing up the horns?

    Picture 07: s7arbuck attempts to pull his face off.

    i cant remember if I use photobucket or imageshack or flickr.

    anyways. uploading a lot of pictures: which has a good way to mass upload? I remember what I used suggesting I download their app to upload more than 50 at once. which apps on which sites are safe and good to use?

    i really want to upload but I'm being so lazy.

    flickr's didn't seem too bad last time i saw it in action, but that was flickr pro (aka, pay-for). it wasn't a downloaded app though, just web-based.

    Flickr also has a dowloadable upload program, but it fails quite consistently. The only reason I have a Flickr is a friend of mine bought it for me, otherwise I would (and still do) use Picasa, which has a much more effective upload program.
