Obligatory Shore Leave Thread

Hi everybody! (Hi Dr. Nick!)

And I return just in time to post the obligatory Shore Leave thread. I will be there, of course. This is my 11th Shore Leave. Looking forward to the temporary carpet blindness at the Marriott. (For the record, I'm staying around the corner at the Comfort Inn, which was a Hampton Inn last year.)

So... who else will be there?

Karen

I've let them know I'm available, but I haven't heard back yet. I guess I should ask again.

Re: Obligatory Shore Leave Thread

Due to my financial situation and other factors, I don't feel comfortable shelling out for flights and hotels this year.

Plus, like Christopher and Greg, I ain't heard anything from anyone doing the writer guest inviting.

Re: Obligatory Shore Leave Thread

I'd love to go back to Shore Leave again, but I have too many other travel plans--including another con in the States the weekend before Shore Leave--to make such a trip feasible.

I never been to either Boskone or Arisia, both in Boston, and both supposed to be good.

I myself have to skip Shore Leave-- I get married two weeks after, and it's rapidly looking like the 10th will be the day I move house. Hope to hit up 2011, though!
