Anyone else going to Montreal for Worldcon? I just got tickets on Priceline for $380 (bid $300, $80 in fees), arriving the afternoon of Thursday August 6, leaving the afternoon of Monday August 10, SFO to YUL via Cincinnati.

Would be nice to room with someone. I'll check the Anticipation group next.

P.S. Next year in Melbourne!
Current Location: Oakland CA
Current Mood: excited

I will be going, as you probably already know. I'm taking the train with Lisa. While it's "free" in the sense that I'm using a mountain of frequent-purchase miles to take Amtrak and for the intermediate hotel nights in Chicago, Schenectady, and Los Angeles, you can figure that it cost around $200,000 spread over the past twenty-plus to spend enough to earn the points to get the free travel.

Have any space in your room? :)

I don't think you'd ride well as checked luggage for six days. :)

Ah, I mean your room in Montreal. I already have my own means of getting there.

Sorry, I shouldn't have been flippant in my response. No, sorry; Lisa doesn't share rooms very well with other people. She only barely tolerates my presence as it is.

I'm only able to use the frequent-travel points for the intermediate hotel nights -- not at the convention itself, because the hotel is mostly blacked out except for us. OTOH, I rather hope that they'll recognize my platinum-level status and upgrade us to an oversized room and grant my request for a mini-fridge. That would save a lot of money right there by letting us stockpile milk and other perishables, saving lots of time and money on breakfasts.

I have a room in the Embassy Suites and am looking for a room share. I have a possible offer from someone else, but if that falls through I'll get back to you.
