Is Wonder Con a con you could do on your own or is it like SDCC and you need a strong group?

You can do it by yourself but it's more fun in a group

There will be a group of us at WC

If I end up going I would love to meet everyone.  I don't have a lot of friends who can afford to go to cons/travel. 

Way I see it if I backpacked Europe by myself then I can con by myself also.  Although I think backpacking Europe was easier than planning for a con :)

I agree with Alyssa. You can do WinderCon by yourself, but it is more fun to meet up with FoCC people!

I'm always willing to meet up with FoCC people.  In fact I'm going to stay an extra night during SDCC next year so I can go to the Sunday dinner.

WC is a GREAT Con to do alone. I've only done it alone. Last year I did meet up with some FoCC and that was great too and it's easier to meet up at WC, less frantic.

I, um,  <clears throat> just bought my plane ticket and went into a panic


I am completely and utterly positive that i'm going to regret deciding to go....please, i need help remembering how much fun i had last year & why '16 will be even better!

the only saving thought, enabling me to live with myself is that the plane tix was on SouthWest so i can change it into a different trip if i completely freak.

so NCDS, if i can make it from New Hampshire, we can figure a way to get you there too!

LOL!!

I think so....i've still gotta sort my C2E2 roomie situation.  If i can get a roomie for Chicago then i can afford the close hotel.  If i don't then i've got to stay with my relatives in Long Beach & rent a car.  At least that's the math i'm doing right now.


but i also priced out a plane tix for d23, $650.... <I...am...hopeless>

I'll ask for the days off tomorrow.  I'm 99% sure I'll get it off.  Then Hotel and airfare shopping.
