I'm also flying solo to LTX19.

 

Would love to meet some people to hang out with before/during/after the event.

 

I'm flying from Israel, it's quite expensive...

 

I'm trying to plan out a trip, my friends keep telling me to do a long trip (a week+) and they suggest I go to NY for a few days after the event as I have yet to travel in the US.

 

I'm open to suggestions, also if Airbnb is a good option and someone looking for more people to share an Airbnb (or any other suggestion) just send me a private message.

I am going to be following this topic as I will be coming in alone too most likely.  The wife has no interest but I still would love to go.  I am 32 to add to the age group data.

Maybe some of you already saw my thread, that I'm looking for someone who is also flying from Austria to LTX. Sharing an AirBNB would be a good option to save a few bucks. Unfortunately the flights are expensive af. I'm planning to stay about a week in Vancouver. Arriving 2019-07-25 and leaving 2019-07-31 (or maybe staying over the following weekend because of the pride in Vancouver on 2019-08-04). I don't know yet.

 

Also I want to get a VIP ticket.

 

For the statistics, I'm 37 as you can see on my avatar 🤣

I'll be going to LTX for the first time this year and id love to meet / talk with some of you before I get there. I'd hate to get there and go from booth to booth alone with no one to enjoy it with like the sad loner I am back home :D. So hit me up you want to meet up at LTX. This community seems super cool and I'd love to meet some of you. I'm also open to carpooling or just traveling together since my best option right now is a 27 hour train/bus ride cause I'm broke. As far as general age/location, I'm a freshman at Foothill Community College, in California.

Also, I know this is super early, but it's my best bet at meeting people as hyped for LTX as I am.

I am 18 most likely driving up from Central Oregon, not 100% if I can make it, depends on my money situation, but if it works out and you can make it here I would be fine with a carpool.

Hi,

First time attending LTX. I will travel from Sweden to LTX19. Flight and hotel booked one month ago.

I am also an old timer Dreamhack Crew in Sweden (22+ event) and I will try to be that at LTX as Dreamhack crew. 
If it doesn't go as I planned then I will be there anyway as a visitor and will gladly meet up and hang out at the event.

I am 26 from Central California and will also be traveling alone. I've never been to Canada before or any convention. Looking forward to it. I work on commercial A/C controls and programs.

I have a feeling if I do make it, i'll be the old gramps of the group at 38....

 

good thing I have the maturity of a 16 year old then.

42 here.  traveling alone and will be flying in from wisconsin.  although, no one believes I am 42.  most think i am late 20s to early 30s (both od which confuse me).  used to run lan parties and worked in live tv and video production and broadcast engineering  for 12 years before switching over to business process consulting and information science stuff in the dreaded insurance business for another...more than 12 years 😢

 

Most likely bringing my gaming laptop with.  looking forward to meeting some new people and visiting a new country.

I am in Des Moines, IA and plan on leaving for the long drive 7/23 after work or early 7/24, I plan on driving through SD, MT, ID, WA and on into Canada. I may be willing to pickup along the way but I cannot promise comfort LOL. I'll have one seat open in my convertible (hoping for some beautiful weather). I may be making a pit stop in Helena, MT to see some fam but other than that some company for the ride may be nice.

If you guys get random drug tested, then that sucks majorly. I live 20 mins drive from LTX and would totally be down to hangout with someone at LTX and smoke some pot before the BYOC if anyone is bringing their PC lol.

If it's still illegal wherever you actually live then it's not really worth it.

right but there's a pretty good chance if the person wants to have a stoner probably they probably have already had weed. even though its illegal its never been hard to get

I'm coming up from Washington, planning on doing the BYOC and pulling an all-nighter, potentially also volunteering; 28, female, not usually a loner but my friends aren't as enthusiastic about LTX as me :P I am also very introverted generally but for some reason being tired af and hopped up on energy drinks makes me more outgoing than usual so its more likely I'll be way more social on the second day 😂

The two days isn't considered the full experience? :P

Odd question, what do you drive?

You'd probably want to look into a work permit if you're going to apply to be a volunteer. Since they're compensating those who do it, the CBSA will consider it employment; if you don't have a work permit, they're likely to deny you entry.

I'll be coming from the East coast of the US by myself so it would be cool to have some people to hang out there with. Events like this are always better with people.
