    fyi....

    Here's a good guess at dates for the next con. Blackhat has announced 2003 dates:

    USA 2003 Briefings & Taining
    Caesars Palace, Las Vegas
    Training: July 28-29, 2003
    Briefings: July 30-31, 2003

    if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

          Blackhat costs like a grand and from what I heard this past year, folks said it would have been fine if they received a $2500 rebate.

          Get there early enough for midgetcon!

            From WI

            I'm hoping to go to DC11 this year, and I think the train idea is a good one. Driving across the US to Vegas would suck big-time, and probably cost more than taking a train or some kind of carpool thing. If there's anyone else close to WI I would appreciate a heads-up email (sentralkor@hotmail.com) or something so we can plan out the trip.
            Hey....they called Bill Gates a 14m3r, too! (and still do!)

              You are correct, that driving across the US does cost more then the Train/Airfare. Often though, the Journey to where you are going is as or more fun then the arrival itself.

              We have a Caravan from the Lower N/E (Leaving from Philadelphia to be exact). There will be a site setup for it soon, incase anyone wants to get in on our whole whopping two car caravan. Hopefully by the time the Con roles around we will have a larger contingent.

              Though, most people from this far East, are smart enough to fly, we still think it would be a much more enjoyable experience to drive. We will be stopping along the way, to stay over night. However, we will be camping out and not staying in a hotel room until we get to Vegas.

              I'll post a URL when we set the site up (sometime in 2003).
              If you want any information prior to then, you can email us at
              caravan@geekvote.com

                Have you already planned your route and timeframe across the US? If so, I could make my plans to meet up at a common point in PA. If not, I still have to get my ass in gear and figure shit out so others can start tapping onto the "Defcon Trail 2003". ok... that is a little cheesy
                if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.
