Going/gone anywhere interesting lately?

I just got back from seeing Queens of the Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal live! It was rad as hell and totally worth the drive to Vancouver.

Soooo next week I'm doing it again to see Portugal. The Man. And then again in April for Nightwish. Then maybe June for Kaleo? Also August for Jack White, and September for the Foo Fighters. I might have a problem.

Longer term I'd like to go to California (for Disneyland) and/or Mexico (for Mexico.)

The last major bit of travel I did was to Laguna Beach, California, for two nights and one day. The day was eaten up almost entirely by work, even hundreds of miles away.

Beyond that, I haven't been anywhere except Seattle, WA back in ... damn, 2015? For the NW Pinball / Arcade show. It was a long time ago...

Because of my occupation, I travel a lot.

#define extensive_travel = traveltime > 90min

But outside of that, I regularly go out of country (and not because the border is only 500m from my home, I can see abroad from my house) for conventions or travel around country for different things (like cons or just meeting friends).

OK, if I travel abroad, it is over 500km until I reach my destination.

I was in Las Vegas for five days this past June for Cisco Live US. It was a busy event and we had a lot of partner/vendor parties so I didn't get to venture off the strip.

I'm hoping to get to go to Orlando this summer for Cisco Live US again. I'd also like to do TwitchCon and/or BlizzCon but I don't know if I can afford to go this year. Depends on how things line up.

One day I'd like to visit Australia. I have some friends in Queensland I'd like to see. One of them might be doing TwitchCon this year, though, so that'd be a fun meetup!

I've not had the chance to travel very much at all. I've been to Melbourne and Perth for work things, and I went to Tasmania a long time ago, but I guess the biggest trip I had was for my honeymoon. We went on a cruise to New Caledonia and Vanuatu, and we spent a few days in Sydney as well.

The islands were pretty cool, but a lot of the poverty was shocking and saddening.

I got to travel a fair bit when I was young because of my dad's work and all the fancy conferences were very kid-friendly for all the agents.

However that was a long time ago. I did get to go to Japan about 3 years ago for my honeymoon though!

portugal the man!!! i need to listen to them, i still have them on my list of Shit To Get

went to PAX West 2017 back in september with two buddies from work--seatlle was kinda muggy but not too much, overall pretty nice and liked that a strip joint was advertising that amazon employees get 20% off

pike place market was kinda intense

going to PAX East in boston this april with one buddy from work and her boyfriend, whose last day at our office was today! moving on to better things

i have an extra set of badges for all four days and i invited one of my closest friends, my ex--she's looking into it since it can get expensive but it'd be great, we're both really into giant bomb and going to their show alone would justify the trip

oh! in late july i drove from san jose all the way down to san diego for a my brother my brother and me show during comic con:



over 11 hours of driving! serene podcast time

san diego was cool and also cool, relatively low temperatures vs. how it was stupid hot back home

I thought I did tell you, but you were busy and we had plans, or something? BMF has been going up there pretty much yearly for that show, too.

I assume part of it is that we were in SeaTac and didn't really plan for other things..?

If we end up going that way again I'll let you know

Aside from smaller trips to shows in Philadelphia, or hopping into Delaware for shopping every once in a great while, or peeking right into the edge of New Jersey to visit my aunt... I've not left the state since 2005.
(yes, I know Philadelphia isn't leaving the state, but shows might be worth mentioning)

I'm overdue as all hell to go somewhere, but where? And with what money

I did enjoy my trip to Baltimore's aquarium in 2005, though!

I can't hear "Delaware" without thinking of plastic food containers and that amuses me to no end.

I had a dream that I was driving back to California, but then I woke up, alas...


I did remember that I went to Alaska many, many years ago! It was for a week or two to visit a friend, and I don't remember much other than it was really cold even in "summer". These days it's probably a little more tropical

Are you still around Vegas? If so, you may have an... Enthusiastic definition of cold.

I went around August 2010 and really liked it.

Nights were still getting to be the 30s or so, which is plenty cold when you end up sleeping outside.

Taking a couple of trips to Boston over the next couple of months, mostly for conventions.

I haven't really been much of anywhere outside New England since 2014, since work eats up most of my free time. I do have enough points on my card though that I can take a free round trip flight to California. I wanna go visit some friends there.

Well, it's confirmed that I'm going to the Bahamas in October. It's going to be the first time I've been out of the country in almost 20 years, and I'm super hyped.
