LTX Loner Meetup!! (Traveling alone and looking for chill people to hang with at LTX)

Recommended Posts

I'll be flying in from Penticton Friday night if anyone wants to hang before the event. I'm staying at the Samesun Hostel until Monday. I'll also be at the BYOC.

@Infensus oh wicked. I've never stayed in a hostel so I opted for the shared bathroom private room. 

 

Sweet, I've just gone for a mixed dorm. Much cheaper, I arrive on the evening of Thursday 25th. If you're looking to chill/head to the con with someone I'd be down. It'll be likely there's more people staying at Samesun going to LTX. Feel free to DM me

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'm wanting to go their with my brother from Sheffield UK

How did you search for Hostels? I need help finding housing.

I'm an American 43 who works and lives in Germany I'll be heading up the week before and traveling around then staying near the convention center, I think, and hiring (renting) a car.  I plan on bringing a SFF computer and portable monitor for the BYOC or I may buy parts and build it there.

I just googled hostels in Vancouver and looked for ones near the convention centre, with decent reviews, I booked with hostelworld specifically but there are loads of options

Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone wanted to do a scrapyard wars marathon? If so, let's discuss the details and all. See y'all in July.

I'm hopefully traveling out of Riverside/Temecula area to go, I would most likely drive up thursday/friday and drive back monday/tuesday. I'm still waiting to hear back from work to hear if I can take those days off, but if you're looking for a carpool, I'd be down to drive up. Even if other people want to get in on this traveling along my route (through LA, through San Francisco, etc). 

Just waiting on work to give me the okay. :D

My friend and I are driving from San Diego. If you want to join forces and split the cost let me know!

My impression from last year was that women were more than 1% but less than 20%. No idea how many were enthusiasts or plus one's. You can get a bit of an idea from looking at the galley. Also, I'm in my 60's and there were enough over 21 that I didn't feel out of place. For me the tough part was being solo, since there were a lot of lines which would have been easier to deal with if I had someone to chat with.

Don't worry Jay will be there...😮

I'll be heading over from Victoria solo.

I'm debating just borrowing a gaming laptop for the BYOC so I can lug it around in a backpack when I don't want to play or trusting the people and leaving my machine unattended for a few hours.

 

I'd love to meet up with some laid back folks just wandering around the different booths/events and maybe a pint of beer and dinner nearby.

I'm 37 which I guess is old but I don't feel it :)

 

Last tech related conference / expo I went to was CES in 2014 and PAX in 2005 :)

Am freaked out by Airbnb prices, got a 2 garage house in Richmond a couple of blocks from River Rd for Friday & Saturday nights for $260 US including all fees. That's after looking at use of a bedroom for $30, all right in the same area.
