    If you plan on rolling in/out with the CCST, those dates are way off. You want 8/23-8/27

    Date Leaving: 8/26*

    Spots Needed: 4

    Our Gender: Male

    Our Age: All of us will be 20.

    Your Gender: Doesn't matter.

    Notes: We will be able to drive, and collectively have 3 cars. We also have a basic knowledge of the local bus system if needed. *We live in the area, so coming/leaving early/late is not an issue, we'd just like a spot to sleep because we all live on the Eastside (Of Lake Washington).

    We realize this is kinda a big demand to fill, so if you're from out of town (or not) we'd love to show around the tourist stuff, and/or take you out to dinner somewhere in addition to our share for the rooms. We promise it won't be Von's.

    Best Contact Method: PM or email. If you're kinda worried about meeting so many people for the first time we have no problem communicating before PAX to make it less awkward.


    Edit: NEED FILLED!

    Last year, me and my friend left PAX at about 1-1:30. We decided to crash at one house. We got up at 5 to go get in line Saturday morning. We live about 30-45 minutes away. Less driving time = more sleep time = not being dead tired at PAX despite drinking half a case of Bawls.

    If no one has mentioned it yet here there is also the very inexpensive ($20 - $29 a night) Green Tortoise, if you are down with staying at a hostel. It is located right next to the pike place market, which is just blocks away from where PAX will be.

    http://www.greentortoise.net/

    The reason I mention it is because I just read an article in the Seattle PI that says that since the other downtown Seattle hostel closed recently the Green Tortoise is getting packed, so if you want to stay there you should probably check about reserving space now.
