Plain and simple, I am jealous of all this sweet, sweet Destructoid love south of the border and I want in. I figure I've got 8 months exactly to get my shit in gear and make it out to Seattle. My plan is to find a gaming sponsor of some type and chronicle the entire road trip out, the PAX itself, the presumed multiple Dtoid after parties and then the road trip back.
To bring a much needed dose of Canadian reinforcements to the Dtoid army unit that will be in operation at the PAX event. I will be bringing a fellow Dtoider with me and wil be willing to pick up two others and even form a convoy with other Canadian Dtoiders. I will be posting subsequent postings for more info if you are interested!
I'm going to be starting out from my house in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. I will meet up with any and all Dtoiders from Toronto that want to start a convoy and head out. The course will take us on an epic road trip that will span across Canada along the Trans-Canada Highway, get to Vancouver, then head across the border and make our way to Seattle. The official route will be posted in a couple days.
I will be travelling more than 5000 km to meet this goal. It will take about 3 days of constant driving to get there. I will be recording video, taking pictures and writing about the experiences the entire time. I only intend to get myself, my best friend and two more people to Seattle, anyone else will have to provide their own transportation and is more than welcome to join the convoy.
Get to PAX on time for the entire expo, get together with as many Dtoiders as possible and for myself, shake Niero's hand. And have a shitload of fun.
From now on I will be posting updates on my progress and the roster of who ever wants to join. We've got 8 months and this will take a lot of planning to orchestrate properly. Msg me if you'd like more info and to make plans. See you at PAX in '09!
