I was seriously thinking about going to Defcon, but a buddy of mine backed out at the last minute. I am looking for someone to split the costs of going to Defcon down the middle. My goal is to leave Thursday (tomorrow) and arrive in Vegas to get my con badge that same day. Figure about $350 for your budget and be ready with cash. This will cover rental car, gas, con badge, and hotel stay (Double occupancy / Thu. - Sat. night) at the Riviera. Let me know if you are up for it. I would really love to go to Defcon this year and would be happy to share it with a fellow San Diego hacker.

P.S. I'm into lock picking and will be attending the LPCON contest. I also have attended San Diego 2600 meetings. We may have met there already.
