In our case I made arrangements a while ago to stay down in Chula Vista (which can be canceled if I don't get a ticket) near a Trolly station. Much cheaper than the ones downtown or in Hotel circle. We just get a 3 day trolly pass and get dropped off in front of the Omni each morning.

The only problem with this, for me back when I used to go to SDCC, was that it means having to carry everything around with you all day.

Glad you put that up. Now remember...anyone interested, you have to have a SDCC id to buy tix. You should still be able to register for one...but YOU MUST HAVE ONE to buy.

Bite away or fire away...yes it's cool to say 'I was there back in the day' and I get that. I love a good rant more than most. I appreciate that it has grown away from the purpose that it served and I thank those that came before me. In the meantime I love the sights, smells, and memories that the con has afforded me the past couple years. You have to remember...time changes all. Comic books were in the closet so to speak when this started...and now...they have come out screaming. A good idea is a good idea and success breeds contempt. Is ComicCon perfect? NOPE. But it's multicolored multi-paneled...just like the comics that spawned it(see what I did there). And I will cherish it till I cannot anymore. My cynicism goes away when I get to go all fanboy for 4 days. I get to see folks who I admire, laugh at those less fortunate than I, and come home with swag, toys and cool memories. Once again...CANNOT wait for the bad food, geek body odor, and long waits in line. Excelsior.
