  • Drive from east coast and New York

    I am trying to find a group or create a group for members in the east. Anyone looking for a parter give me replys back. I have email: sysadmin@playin-games.net and a web link where I can be reached daily

    shit give me a call if I'm not busy I may be able to chat 732-925-3053
    ask for mike

    I've got a lot of gear to go with and I'm considering renting a U'haul or something big maybe SUV for trip there and maybe fly back.

    I'm moving to Las Vegas soon so my gear may stay there. I'd like to hear back from some people on the east coast or midwest. I'm serious Holla

    I've got a business opportunity that came my way at work and I'm not passing it up! A buddy of mine in Brooklyn is selling his timeshare to me for 4k its smack dab in the middle of the strip 2 months out the year.

      i drove one year from philly to chicago, picking up people along the way. the guy furthest west was out there, so we met up, crashed at his pad, and flew out to LAS from ORD. that drive was enough for me one time, methinks. then again, it was quite an experience. (as was driving down to mississippi a while back... made me really appreciate how much of the country is totally in the shitter)

      the furthest i've ever driven in one day was about 800 miles... and that nearly kicked my ass completely (i grew worried about my mental state when i was getting close to the hotel in tennesse, thank god i came to it when i did) i can't imagine making the drive completely across to vegas... unless you do it with about four or five people, rotate along the way, and stop for the night in Columbus, Omaha, and Denver before arriving to the con... otherwise you'll show up here and just pass the fuck out by the pool... then i'll be burdened with the task of drawing shit all over your faces with a sharpie.

        cowards.. I drive the 30 hours between Vegas and Alabama once a yearish... you get use to the long hauls... caffine and your CD collection are the keys
        If I had a nickle for every time someone offered me ten cents to keep my two cents to myself... I would be a rich man.

          Of course, the fact that you are generally pursued by police cruisers in each state you visit probably speeds the trip along...

            That reminds me, if you are driving make sure you have all of the paperwork that would be need (insurance, proof of ownership, etc.) if pulled over in a handy, easy to locate place. That way if you do get pulled over you don't piss off the LE officer off by having to look for everything, plus it helps out when you have more than one driver per vehicle.

              Last two cons I (and others) drove down from Seattle. We made sure to have a scanner on us. We also carried 'throw donunts', you know those small donuts made by Hostess. We never had to use them, but you never know. ;)

              Of course we had cell phones and HAM radios (the route we take is out in the middle of no-where so there is no cell coverage) plus food, water, tools etc etc. We were in a suburban which made it nice, can seat three people while the fourth is sleeping with all the gear stacked up next to them.

              Our best time was just me and another Goon and we did it in 18.5 hours. We made sure to pass through the desert during the night. The down side is there are a lot of animals out at night (lots of dead jackrabbits on the road).

                I would love to hook up a scanner but in Colorado it is a "Class 2 misdemeanor traffic offense" if you own or use one in a motor vehicle.

                Wait I thought cops only liked the normal sized donuts.

                  but what if it's built into your vehicle?


                  (can't get the bloody IMG tag to work for me at the moment)

                  the Escort Passport SRX was a little "my gift to me" sort of purchase way way back when i first got my truck. it's reviews and test results convinced me it was what i was looking for. and now, even when i drive through places like Virginia, etc... what the hell can the cops tell me? to rip it out of my vehicle? "no, officer *snicker* i had it turned off... i *suppresses laughter* know and respect your state's laws very much."

                    It should be safe drive in some four days, few hours more or less, as long as he keep with the speed limit and away from trafic violations...
                    I see nothing wrong with drive three thousand miles to get to defcon, It took two flight trips for me, (but met a gorgeos TSA woman officer just as I got in the states) in my last visit, all the way from Germany. At least this time I am a bit closer :)

                        The last two years, Kryonik and I drove from San Antonio to Vegas and back. I think we averaged about 20 hours, straight through. I'm REALLY looking forward to flying this year!!
