I was listening to a podcast (All Games Considered) this morning where they did a 2006 year recap, and they spoke about Gen Con 06 and what a great time they had, blah blah. I wasn’t able to go last year, given I’d just come back from a trip to Europe, but this year, with no major vacation in plans, I’m really getting the hankering to go. I know it’s early as hell (Gen Con 07 is in August 16-19), but I need time to plan and save up. Ticket prices are around $200 for a round trip from Miami, which is certainly doable. I need to check with my buddy and see if he can swing it, if not, start planning with other friends around the nation to try and pool resources for a room, before they are gone.
Let’s see how this goes.
