Going to Gen Con
Well, I'm posting this for some opinions...
I've been wanting to go visit GenCon for quite a while (more or less since I've first heard of it), as The Big King of Cons, the center of all which is D&D and a 4-day geek celebration.
However, as I'm checking out the site (http://www.gencon.com/2007/indy/) I've come to realize this is quite an undertaking (or quest, if you will).
Flying out to another continent, a strange city and a HUGE event with thousands of people, alone, is quite daunting. Questions regarding costs, times, event participation, dining and transportation rear their heads.
So any ideas on how to tackle these?
Any recommendations (specific or general)?
Any funny convention stories?
I'm all ears...
