[MISC] PAX Attendees Map and discussion of where you're from

Moe FwackyMoe Fwacky Moderator mod
edited August 2009 in PAX Archive
As happens every year, people are expressing interest in the possibility of PAXers near them. To ease this process once again, we have an interactive map of PAX attendees on communitywalk. Previously this sort of thing was on Frappr, but last year a number of people's pinpoints disappeared during the summer. From what I could find, communitywalk seems to be the best offered in this department, although it does require people to register to add a marker. Check it out anyway, when it loads it's centered on the WSCTC, so you'll have to zoom out to get the bigger picture.

http://www.communitywalk.com/pax09

Also, let's keep discussion of geographical proximity in this thread now (otherwise we'll end up with one thread for every city in the US).

It has come to my understanding that some people aren't putting their point down because they don't want to register for the Community Walk website. So I'm offering a second option. Post here in the following format, and I will add you to the map myself.

Add me!
Your Name
Your Location
How you're getting to pax (Flying, Driving, Train, CCST, CST, WCTT or undecided)

    I'm gonna hold off on putting myself on this, since I'm not sure if I'll be flying or taking the WCTT.

    It is a beautiful map though, nice job.

    So, you're gonna be driving, right? I got a buddy that might need a ride from Sydney, and it would be awesome if you could give him a ride. Just don't stop at the rest stop near Bikini Atoll, there are some weird creatures around there.

    Though, there is that underwater train tunnel too. You could always look into that ;)

    Oh my god, there's so much snow here. I stayed at my cousin's last night and had to dig 6" of snow off my car. Not to mention what was already on the ground and what's probably going to fall tonight. Why the fuck couldn't all this happen weeks ago when I didn't have to go anywhere instead of now when I have to go back to work on Tuesday and hop all around town this weekend? Anybody else getting snowed on? (also it was -2F when we went to the bar on Friday).

    There's an odd lack of snow back in my hometown. Usually it snows between 5-10 feet of snow by January, but right now it has only snowed about 2 feet there and its all melting away. So much for the ski resorts making money.

    edit: Shoveling anything over 6 inches sucks and kills the back.

    Who shovels? Not me. I live in an apartment and drive a Buick. The lot is plowed, sometimes twice a day, and my car can get over little mounds of snow with a minimum of wheel spinning.

    Also, yeah we had a strange lack of snow between christmas and about a week ago, then it all got dumped on us.

    The FF icon is a bit hard to see on the maps, but it's better then the frappr map for sure. I put my address on that and it put my icon in a damn river!

    This is working good though, got my marker on there in Everett. Perfectly accurate too, icon is dead center on the roof of my house. :P

    Yeah, the frappr map was crap. About halfway through the summer last year, people's markers started disappearing.

    Also, it's hard to get the fruit fucker to show up well that small and too much larger and they start overtaking that part of the map.

    At least one doughty Englishman shall be flying across the Big Pond to invade Seattle in a wave of crumpets and bad dentistry! Looking forward to meeting you all. Will be my first PAX, finally able to go after University and getting a real job 8-) Hopefully will have some of my other very English minions in tow. Is PAX generally an all-American affair or do many foreigners make the trip? Just curious...

    Cheers!

    We'll see all of them (minus LewieP and LPM--English will invade East-PAX!) again soon.
    I thought the reason why we had the Boston Tea Party was to get away from the English and their redonkulous tea tax?
    BTW--Boston Tea Party Museum...destroyed in a fire in the early 2000s. My sister and two best friends were super sad and reenacted it anywho.

    I'm not sure if I should apologize for the Tea Tax or not, tea is liquid gold after all. Can't survive without it!

    Nice to hear I won't be alone, but I'm sure you lot will make an interloper such as myself quite welcome :) I'll carry on making noise and reinforcing stereotypes here until PAX kicks off anyhow. Will no doubt have a boatload of questions to ask about America and her whimsical ways when the time comes to make the trip :P

    There are LOTS of international attendees. Working the Will-call lines last year I met people from England, Scotland, France, Aussieland, New Zealand, at least 3 other EU countries that I can't think of, Spain, Portugal, and a group of 9 Irish kids that all came over together. And I KNOW I'm forgetting some.

    PAX is quickly taking over the world in a very awesome way.

    Tea... Could you bring some of that house blend from Harrod's with you pretty please? I can reimburse you. NO TAX.
