Tonight’s Show Notes & Download Below:

Chris’ Must Haves

  • Tactical Pants
  • Tactical Shirt
  • Extended Cell Phone battery (Chris bought this for his EVO 4G Jeremy got this for his iPhone), and charging options (plugs, etc) just in case.
  • Google Docs / Spread Sheet if you are going with a couple peeps
  • Kodak Zi8 – Awesome 1080p Flip Cam killer
  • Relax, let yourself wander until you find something that strikes your fancy. Repeat if necessary. It really works!
  • Wear very comfy shoes! (Jeremy says: Or buy new ones!)

Jeremy’s Recommendations:

  • Pen on a cord
  • Hand sanitizer (and USE it, after touching things like keyboards & controllers)
  • Make your schedule ahead of time. (last year I did not, and ended up attending nothing!)
  • When scheduling panels you think you might attend, be sure to read the names/titles of the people hosting.  Don’t waste an hour+ of your valuable ‘con floor time.
  • Get a hotel room.
    • Even though we only live about 45 minutes from PAX, I am wishing now that I got a room nearby.  After-hours parties, no parking fees, easy commutes, etc etc.
  • Exercise before hand, if you’re usually a sedentary type.

Alan’s Thoughts:

  • poop
Valdeck says:  Treat it like a HIKE.
  • Plenty of water, get your rest, bring GPS (in case you get lost under a nerd-a-lanch) and bandages.  And sunscreen if you’ll be outdoors much.
