I have never been to PAX East before and I genuinely have no idea what to expect. If the projected attendance numbers are any indicator, this is going to run the risk of being positively overwhelming. I am, I think, very grateful that I’m focused on the fringier elements of nerd-dom, if only to avoid that.
This will also be the first non-Dreamation/Dexcon in some time where I’m not responsible for a booth. That alone promises to be kind of interesting.
However, there’s a long drive between here and there. I’ll have good company – Fred’s heading up with me – but it’s long all the same. Long enough that, between leaving early and prep, you mostly get a glorified announcement that I’m heading up to PAX in lieu of a real post.
