    it costed me 10 times more to fly down to the main cities in the southern Canada then it costed me to fly down from there to Disney Land.
    so drive down to to civilization then fly to the other side of the continent, then a short hop down to Virginia.

    i dont even go through that much hassle for a good holiday!

    I wish I could go but that's really not gonna happen. Even if I could get the time off work... and I'd have to switch my sleep schedule around... would be neat to meet everyone and stuff but yeah... can't.

    There's an idea. I made honey mead once (many years ago). Pretty strong stuff, too. :)

    Well to be fair, all mead uses Honey as it's primary source of sugar for the fermentation process, I'm considering taking up making it at home as a hobby and experimenting with a variety recipes in small batches over time.

    I doubt I will be able to make it, to expensive for me and USA is so big, I fear I will get lost.
    I hope some of you will take some great pics and share them together with some great stories from the party.

    Yes, it would be interesting to try different fruit juices with it. I just did the basic and never got around to doing more.

    Yea that's the down side, unless you have a way to buy the Honey fairly cheaply it can get expensive. Even a 1 gallon recipes generally recommend around 3 lbs of Honey.

    Hate to hear that. But, it's probably a good thing though. I mean they will probably have a small area roped off for Siege folks and have a few crumbs of cake and a single can of soda for y'all to split. They know y'all are all used to making your way through with limited resources ;)

    Hey! I was just planning the strategy for storming the place. I was think a couple of ATL style gank diversion attacks on the front and the Siege folk (both of us) stealthing from the trees in the back... I noticed there is a Dairy Queen in the area!

    Yeah, on second thought I'm not going. I had this tiny little shred of respect for the people of Broadsword, but they lost it.

    Is it going to be held in Richmond? I figured it would be in Herndon/DC area. If that was the case you'd need to fly to Dulles airport which is $475 first class on AA.

    Yeah, I think it's generally more expensive to fly to and from Richmond. A lot of times people will come and go from Dulles because it's cheaper. And Dulles should be closer to the party I imagine.

    Lucky you...
    It will be 3,600$ to fly business from where I am to Dulles.
    And it will be 20+ hours transit time, with at least two connections. But alas, I will make that sacrifice. :p

    At 6'1'', I did the mistake of flying couch to another country once. NEVER again.
