Yer welcome to sleep on my floor.


Isn't that a line from the 'Three's company' theme song?


Is that your way of getting in on the room?

If I had a 70's era Joyce Dewitt, I wouldn't be going to Origins.

Is there parking if you drive in on a day-to-day basis?

Yes, there are a few garages that'll fill up around 9am, but if you get there early, there's plenty of parking.  I stay w/ my folks, and drive in every day, and use a garage that's about 2 blocks away.  There's other surface parking about 4-5 blocks out that's even cheaper.

This sounds complicated.

If you ride with Barth let him figure it out. Tell him it's an engineering problem. Just don't tell him it involves Urban Planning and not particle physics until you get there.

I've always used either the parking garage under the convention center or the open lot a couple of blocks to the east with no problems parking for either Origins or the OSBA convention.

I may go this year.  Origins usually has an excellent Call of Cthulhu track.  I can drive to Columbus in a day from Alabama.

Origins is right after the Southern Fried Game Expo in Atlanta (pinball & tabletop games).  But that con is only Friday - Sunday and it is a very easy drive for me.

Martok and me stayed west of Columbus at a Days Inn or something.  It was about a ten minute drive in and we parked in the garage across the street from the Convention Center.  It was $20 a day to park.  The room was less than a hundy and he booked it after January.  It's what I planned to do again this time.

We should talk.
