I'm still recovering from Origins 2017.

I will be there dependent on the usual factors completely out of my control.  Once verified, I will commence the browbeating of any of you backsliders and on-the-fencers.

I'm going to do my best. I have no idea how I'll pull the logistics/financing off but I'll try to, regardless. I'll definitely have to room with someone/sleep on a couch or floor.

I'm going and Ill be running a pulp cthulhu scenario.  I've got it about 40% written.  I'll tell you guys which one and when it will run after I learn this.

Since I'm way ahead of the game this year.  What hotels do you guys recommend for Origins that are within walking distance of the show?  I have that option this year, although parking out at the airport and driving in was not a problem except for the Gay Pride parade day.

It's my understanding that the hotels that are close, the Hyatt, Hampton Inn, etc. get snapped up shortly after the current con is finished.

Origins website claims that the group rates on the hotels will come available in September.

Get the Hampton if you can. It's actually the one that's closest to where we are, and you get free breakfast with it
