Oh, sure- it's not like I'm just getting in a car and driving a few miles... :-(

A bit harsh, Atom.

Flying to the Summit

Yep, you wouldn't be the first to arrive via plane, if you did come. With that said, I haven't looked at domestic flights lately, but last night I was kicking the tires on another trip to Japan and the taxes alone were nearly $600. That's not a typo. $600!! I'm pretty sure it was in the $250 range last time I went. So it looks like flight is expensive these days (and I will not be flying to Japan anytime soon.)

I will be at the Summit, though, for sure and hope to see some new faces this year, as well as get re-acquainted with the old ones. Not sure what I'll be bringing for trade/sale this year. It could be nothing, or it could be every single one of my modern gokins. I'm quite undecided about my collecting future when it comes to that stuff lately.

Looks Cool!

Too bad I'm thousands miles away. Maybe I could host my own summit here.

Hotels and Airports

Josh,

What would be the nearest hotel and what airport should I fly into?

I'm going to check if I could fly out there to meet up with everyone.

Thanks!
LF

We'll fight them on the Beaches!

There are three airports you

There are three airports you could fly into nearby. Logan International in Boston is the biggest, followed by Manchester-Boston international (in New Hampshire actually), is also close. Closest is Hanscom in Bedford, but it is a small airport, mostly regional service I think. You will need a rental car, as there is no public transportation to my house.

For hotels, you have a few options, all are within 15 minutes of CDX HQ:

Doubletree Lowell

Radisson Hotel & Suites Chelmsford
10 Independence Dr
Chelmsford, MA 01824
(978) 256-0800

Best Western Chelmsford Inn

Hope you can make it!

Any of you guys passing through the Framingham area want to show me the way or give me a ride? I'm fine with whatever is easier.

There's no Amtrak station

There's no Amtrak station super close - You could take Amtrak to south station in Boston, then take the subway to North station, then the commuter rail to Lowell. It's probably 2 hours travel time from south station.

You can if you want to -

You can if you want to - we'll have soda / grill stuff (burgers/dogs etc), but if you want to add something to the mix, feel free. We could always use snack stuff, or if you have any special dietary needs....

Looking forward to seeing you all!

*sad,sad*

Well guys, due to a crushing combination of schedule and $$ issues neither yours truly nor the 6 foot gundam will be able to make it for '08. Hope you all have a blast and know that I'll be there in spirit, as well as over the phone checking up on trade shwag ;).

Missing Out

So may great events in such short of time: DX East Coast Summit, SDCC, Macross World Fest, Anime Expo, Etc Etc.

Next year I'm making it out to DX East Coast Summit, it's a shame that I'm missing it and I'm looking forward to meeting many of you in person! Or maybe I should head up DX West Coast Summit!?

Have a great time!

Sale/Trade items

I know its a bit late, but is anybody interested in legos, Nintendo power, or Newtype USA magazines? I'm bringing a few other things, but the things listed above are a pain to move unless there is a chance of unloading them on someone.

Thanks
