I spent a little time today double-checking some stuff related to my travel arrangements for Comic-Con. First, I found the paperwork from the last time I went to the con — 2008. So I’ve skipped three years. I guess that’s long enough that it’ll feel fresh and new, to some extent, this year.
This year, I’m staying farther away from the Convention Center than I ever have before. I’m staying at the Hilton San Diego Mission Valley, about 5 miles from the convention center. It’s on one of the con bus routes, but I know from previous experience that those buses can be less than reliable, so I’m happy to have found that it is also a 10 minute walk from the trolley station at Hazard Center. And they’re running some special trolley service for the con, so that should help.
