Yeah, I realized it is a bit early to be thinking about summer. But well, these thoughts will probably required some planning (Such saving money, ect.), so I think it is good to be thinking about them now rather than later.
So what about summer am I thinking about? Well, if you recall my New Year’s entry, I mention there that I was going to try to check out BrickFair VA a day again this year.
Well, I been thinking about it lately and I am kind considering maybe attending the whole event. Although I am still kind on fence about it, so I thought I should post an entry to hear your advice or thoughts on the matter.
I mean transportation is going to be bit of issue, if I do consider it, as I can't really drive myself there. So it kind leaves two options really, traveling by plane (Which is something that I never before and probably will be a bit scared about the idea) or traveling by train (Which will required me figure out a bus route to actually get to the convention or hotel itself.).
So yeah, that gives me a bit of pause. But maybe it will be worth the trouble of having to figure stuff like that out.
At this point, I am kind leaning toward by plane option since while it is more money (And honestly looking at the price makes wonder how people from faraway places (Like the West Coast) than me make there every year as man, it is expensive.) than a train trip, arranging transport seem like it would be easier there than at train station.
I say this because the train option has me having the figure out the public transportation system. Additionally at least according to Google, it seems like I can't even get to a bus stop without a car, so getting off the train and preceding to walk the route to bus stop would likely take me through a highway or something (Either that or Google just didn't factor in walking in this Public Transportation route because it would be a lot of walking. *shrugs* I might have play around with that some more to see if that might be case.).
There also time as factor as one of train stations (Which is closest one to there.) only has one route down there and I won't get there till 5:30 PM, which means I would have figure out public transportation there at night and add like two to three hours to the trip (Meaning I wouldn't get there till like 8 PM.). So yeah, not sure about that option, unless I go for station a bit farther down (Which has at least three train route options to choose from with some being in morning hours, so it could be a better route. *shrugs*).
So yeah, I am leaning toward the plane option due to those factors. But then again, maybe I shouldn't even think about it. XD I don't know. It's just a thought and like I said in beginning though, I am interested to get your viewpoint since most of you know more about this traveling thing than me.
With that said, I think that's about it for this entry. I would appreciate any advice that you folks might have to offer. And thank you for taking the time to read this. Talk to you later, BZPers.
