LoneStarCon 2013

Ok. Remember I'm stupid regarding these things. Is it time to book a room? If so, how do I do this and where should I stay? I'm getting my own room because I'm insufferable. So is there a link? Does everybody stay in the same place? Please advise, y'all. Thanks!!!!!

Baitac,

If you want a room in the con hotels, yes it's time. I normally room with three others because (1) very little time is actually spent in the room and (2) it greatly lowers the cost.

Gah. I guess I better think about where to sleep. I don't plan on being in any condition to drive home in the evening :P

Of the two hotels, the Marriott River Center is by far the better. We stayed there for the '97 Worldcon and, to date and absolutely loved it. The pool/hot-tub facilities, at least back then, were nothing short of spectacular, and featured child-free hours for some peace and quiet during the day :) Try to get a room high-up overlooking the Riverwalk, if possible.

I've been to a BwB party only once (in Reno) and, even though I hadn't yet become a fan of the books/show, had a great time. I'm eagerly looking forward to meeting everyone this year and spending some quality time in the suite :)

Thanks! Are you going? If so, where are you staying?

Last I checked, flight prices were still pretty reasonable. In fact southwest's fares just started posting... I'm using miles though. The prices to SAT in generally are pretty crappy from LAX.

I think WOTK means to book the room and/or flights. Unless I missed something. Which is entirely plausible... (Yoko/Yoda?)

Muhahahahahaha - Just saw this. I am still snorting over your Yoko/Yoda insanity. That was sooo funny.

Of course, I have no idea why I think this is funny when you're kicking my tail in Trivie so much. :(

Flights are now booked! Woooo-hoooooo! I'm so happy about this, I'm not even going to gripe (well, much) about the total lack of direct flights.

Fenryng and I plan to arrive Wednesday afternoon, and depart Tuesday morning. Staying at the Rivercenter, if I didn't mention that before.

Now all we need to do is get our Hugo nomination ballots in asap...

So excited!!!

That was between you and TMoW? LOL TMoW accidentally picked JR Ewing as the person who wrote The Hobbit! That one is now my favorite. Can't wait to see the both of you at LoneStar!!!

You three are bad influences. How can I miss this when y'all are going to be there, and I'll be bemoaning my staying home. I'm seriously considering.

RH, please come. We can go shopping and further indoctrinate Bai. into turning southern whilst she teaches us how to be Puerto Rican.

It will be a learning experience. :)

I will DIE if you come with to the con. You know, this is what's needed to convince Trisky there's really four of us. But he can only make sure if he attends himself. Calling Triskers!! Really, Ravenhair, PLEASE come!! We'll have a great, great time!!

I'd recommend miles over dropping $400+ on the flight. Southwest was 25K for round trip, and same for united (both fly nonstop from LAX).
