Alright, so having never actually been to a Con (I know, take away my papers now), I need help with this whole planning thing.

Are people planning to arrive Thursday night (April 22) and leave Sunday sometime? I tried checking the website to see what's going on at the Con on Sunday, but it's not up yet.

I don't want to book my flights without more information - help!

I personally found leaving on monday more convenient, so you can still talk to people on sunday and most of the times on saturday and sunday a lot happens.

As far as the convention itself goes, nothing really happens until Friday afternoon. If you really want to wait, you can arrive Friday morning and won't miss anything. However, I live a few miles away and will be around Thursday night. Last year, a few people were there on Thursday night, including Cary and Zan. Hopper and Yellowbeard live nearby, as well as Jason from Dragonmount and a few others, so there are plenty of people to hang out with if you want to arrive on Thursday evening.

As far as leaving, that depends on your schedule. I would say most of us leave Sunday afternoon, but if you don't have to be back to work on Monday, I'd take Sunday afternoon and go check out some Atlanta attractions, like the Coca-Cola museum or the Atlanta Aquarium. I will be available to hang out (and chauffer, I suppose) Sunday afternoon if you (or anyone else) wants to stick around.

I plan on arriving Thursday morning/afternoon(so I can find out who killed Asmo :)) and probably leaving monday morning. I just find it easier navigating through airports in the morning. Less hassle.

It's probably about an hour, hour and a half drive from the hotel.

Where do you live, JSU? I'm in Buckhead. Just curious, I didn't know there were any TH-ers in Atlanta.

I'm in Stockbridge (about 15 minutes south of I-285) but I work in Alpharetta up 400 near Haynes Bridge Rd.

Doesn't matter if the beach sucks, baby. I just want to see the Atlantic Ocean. I've never done that, oh and bury my feet in the sand. :) As for what to do other than that with our extra time there... well it will be our honeymoon! ;)

I don't quite know what I'm doing yet...it might be Thursday-Monday, or it might change depending on when flights are cheaper...I'm a fat bastard and so they might well charge me two seats to fly anywhere so any savings I can get I'll probably take.

And I live in Kennesaw (land of mandatory gun ownership) about 35 minutes from the Con.

For those of you planning travel around programming times...

Programming will begin at 1:00 on Friday, so get there sooner if you don't want to miss out. Be sure to leave time for hotel check-in and Con registration.

The plan is for everything to be done by 5-6 on Sunday. The Con staff wants to be able to go home and sleep. :P However, there are usually a lot of people who wait to go home on Monday, so there are plenty of folks to hang out with Sunday night.

We're going to start driving Thursday. Leave Sunday afternoon. I'm pretty sure 3 people in a car can make 14 hour trip without hotel stops.

We'll arrive Thursday (as of now) and leave Monday morning or late Sunday night (depending on baby sitters and such).

It would be awesome to have 20-30 Theorylanders, more would be amazing. What's the official count so far? From this thread it looks to be 15-20.

~hugs everyone~

Thanks for the responses! I feel much better now. I've been checking the big travel websites daily now, so as soon as I find a good deal, I'll pounce! I'm thinking Thursday-Sunday so I don't have to miss an extra day (unless I want to!).
