No reason to keep adding to last year's post.

 

I'm reserved at the Hilton!

I'm usually reserved wherever I go, but I'm staying at the Hilton.

I'm reserved at the not Hilton(heh). I'm pondering taking Amtrak to not have to deal with downtown parking. Sure, no fun road trip, but I can play on my tablet, etc all I want for 6 hours there + 6 hours back. Cost-wise, it's about the same.

Can someone explain what the logo is?  I have been trying to figure it out since it came out months ago, and I just can't.

I'm looking forward to go on my annual pilgrimage to MGC with my daughter. This year I'm thinking of taking my three younger step daughters on Family Day, since last year their brothers got to go.

I have no idea where I'll be staying.  Probably a few weeks before I can start looking at hotels because I have to wait for my taxes to process.

I've got a room at the Hilton Doubletree for Saturday night.  Hopefully the in-room TV doesn't block out game systems like our room at the Sheridan did last year.  :(

Any of you guys looking for anything in particular to pick up while you're there? I myself would like to find a 32k (or better) Color Computer 2. Also, some more TI99 carts would be cool.

The vendors I spotted that had CoCos the last couple years have been stupendously overpriced.

Gross. I was worried about that. I suppose putting in a lil' thing in the "wanted" section of the Marketplace here on the forum would probably yield a more reasonable response.

Yeah, I probably wouldn't hold out too much hope of finding any pre-Crash or computer-related stuff for prices that don't induce vomiting. :( (Unless you need 2600 ultra-commons, I guess.)

I'd love to find some PC Engine or Playstation imports, but I've been surprised the past few years at how few import dealers there are.  There used to be one guy who dealt almost exclusively in imports, but I haven't seen him there in a few years now.  I'm also looking for some crappy broken controllers to give my kid so he can pretend he's playing games with me.

The wife and I will go if they have Apple II and emulation stuff. We're about an hour's drive at most. And I'm not interested in paying $55 to see shitpiles of Mario and fighting games.
