    I had a blast at the con, and, having been to several comic-cons including the big international one in San Diego multiple times, I have to say that while the events weren't that big Bronys are the FUNNIEST people to be around. The car ride was terrible but it was expected to be, and honestly it wasn't as bad as it could have gotten if not for Red. He kinda saved the road trip with his supplies (laptop and power converter) and quick suggestions.

    I'm mixed on this. Most did not enjoy the drive, and true it was exhausting. Yet at the same time kind of enjoyable. Watching episodes and listening to music I didn't know of before as well as talking to everyone and getting to know them better. It was enjoyable.

    The Con was kind of... fun yet tiring. I missed all the panels and the ones I tried to make were canceled. Of course this was their FIRST con, but when I compare it to BronyCon, the convention itself could have been organized much better.

    Add this to miscommunication (what kind of trip doesn't take a list of phone numbers before leaving?) and things could have gone slightly better. HOWEVER nothings every perfect, and with the mindeset that it could have gone a lot worse than it did, I still have to say I loved it and would definitely do it again!

    @Aron. Haha, hope it wasn't my Derpy button, because that was exclusive.

    August 20, 2012

    • Chris (Tsitra360)

      I'll get you another one if I make it to a meet up.

      August 21, 2012

    • Aaron Wolfe

      Thank you, just my luck that the only thing I manage to lose of all the things I could have lost is that specific button. lol

    Just about everything that could have possibly gone wrong did. But a lot of good things happened too. 26+ hours in a packed car will drive anyone insane but it was the first convention for most. But in the end I don't think I'll be organizing anything like this again. It was just too much too deal with all the problems.

  • Red

    Everfree was a total blast. We had some problems, but most of those could have been resolved with better planning and communication.

    August 21, 2012

  • Aaron Wolfe

    I'm really torn on this one. On the one hand I did have a lot of fun and got into the trading card thing (for better or worse idk yet... lol).
    But on the other hand I really didn't enjoy all the driving and I found out right before the trip back that my grandma died around the time we left on Thursday... yah...

    August 20, 2012

  • Aaron Wolfe

    @Michael I think one of my buttons fell out in the car, can you check and see if you can find it? It's a Derpy one.

    August 20, 2012

  • Chris (Tsitra360)

    Have a good drive Bronys! I'll see ya there!

    August 16, 2012

  • Josh C.

    I'm just leaving my house ill be there shortly

    August 16, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    PEOPLE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARRIVE AT MY HOUSE TONIGHT OR AT 5-5:30AM TOMORROW I SWEAR IF ANY OF YOU BAIL I WILL HUNT YOU WITH VENGEANCE

    August 15, 2012

    • Brendan Kirk Julian

      Anyway, yeah. They're redirecting it to my house now. Scumbag Discount Cab...

      August 15, 2012

    • Puzzle Plate

      btw regina we will be picking you up along the way

      August 15, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    with the limited number of people we have now we're considering forgoing the van idea and just going with 2 of our own vehicles to save the rental price. Please leave me message about what you think about this idea I also need one more volunteer to allow us to use their car to drive.

    August 14, 2012

    • Brendan Kirk Julian

      ^That's a good question

      $150 will cover gas now. Anything more would help me with the hotel room though. Otherwise I guess its a gift from me if you can't afford more.

      August 14, 2012

  • Chris (Tsitra360)

    Too bad this road trip wasn't announce a mere 2 days earlier before I made my flight reservations. I have a car that would've held 6 that has 27 mpg. Hope you guys figure all of this out now. And remember…PACK! Get your things ready now.

    August 14, 2012

  • Brendan Kirk Julian

    Is the price for hotel/gas still at $150 or has it changed?

    August 13, 2012

    • Puzzle Plate

      Michael Rice got the hotel room unless you can help us get an even better deal

      August 13, 2012

    • Regina Richards

      Gah if it's bumped up.. agh. My grandma has my money... Which when I told her $150 she was mad about it, but still accepted. If I go and tell her $200 now? "$200? I thought it was $150, I knew this was going to happen, it always does, lecture, lecture, lecture, lecture." <- what will happen.

      August 14, 2012

  • Aaron Wolfe

    @Puzzle Is it still ok if I come over the night before? I think you said it was ok but I want to double check.

    August 13, 2012

    • Puzzle Plate

      yes its ok but its limited to only a few people

      August 13, 2012

  • Josh C.

    How much is the hotel, and what model of van are we taking. . . just curious

    August 13, 2012

  • Chris (Tsitra360)

    So do we know where we're staying

    August 8, 2012

  • Kris

    So I was wondering what kind of entertainment will be planned for this long butt killer of a trip. As a pen and paper RPG enthusiast, I had some thoughts to run a few one shot RPGs if people are interested in that sort of thing.

      sounds fun!

      August 4, 2012

    • Kris

      Yeah sorry probably should have said I was Nathan's guest first. Anyway I'll throw some stuff together. To give people an idea of what to expect I'll probably set up some Paranoia (The setting is like the movie Brazil, Comic V for Vendetta, or the book 1984), maybe Some NWoD (Mage:Awakening, Changling:Lost...etc), and they may or may not be ponified depending on how creative I get. Feel free to make any suggestions or comments on what you like or other things we could/will be doing. I'm just trying to avoid a dull ride up.

    Hey Guys, I won't be joining you on the road but I'll still be at Everfree Northwest, looking forward to having the Phoenix group up there! Any idea if you might have enough room for me to stash a couple of things with ya' guys if I don't have enough room in my carry-on and over-head bags?

    August 4, 2012

  • Brendan Kirk Julian

    Got the final RSVP spot. Now just waiting to hear back from Chris for his extra ticket. =D

    August 1, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    $150 split however we are trying to bring that cost down today

    July 29, 2012

  • Chris (Tsitra360)

    Last call if anyone needs a ticket. I got the extra. If no one responds I'm going to do something different with it.

    July 28, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    well we'll be leaving my place at 6am on Thursday the 16th and we'll be in Vegas around 11am that day. We'll be leaving EFNW on sunday and we'll be back late Monday

    July 28, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    we are sharing a room but zedrin is looking into asking his friend if they are willing to let us use their room as well

    July 28, 2012

  • Regina Richards

    Another question friends and family have for screening purposes (sorry). How does the hotel thing work? Are we all sharing a room, did you get more than one and certain groups sharing, or what? I'm assuming it's the first one, but I can't see everyone fitting O.o

    July 27, 2012

  • Chris (Tsitra360)

    @Earthstar Standard tickets/badges are not transferable.

    My extra ticket however isn't standard. So like I said earlier...if ANYONE needs a ticket now, please let me know as soon as possible.

    July 27, 2012

  • Kisai Sakurai

    I was considering that this might not be worth the hassle. Then I heard Andrea Libman is going to be a guest. ;_; ::groans:: Now I'm not so sure...

    July 27, 2012

  • EarthStar

    I might be going if my work place gives me my days off from work that I requested, not sure yet. I should know by Aug.1st when my work schedule locks up. If I'm able to go I'll be able to drive a shift cause I'm 32yrs. and as long as the vehicle is an automatic. I do not know how to drive a stick shift. I'll also bring over my GPS System so we won't get lost. I tend to use it alot especially when I'm driving in unfamiliar territory. If I'm unable to go somepony else can take my ticket.

    July 27, 2012

  • Chris (Tsitra360)

    OK! Looks like standard badges are NOT TRANSFERABLE. However, the badges I have are Dealers badges, and they can work with me. So do anyone need a badge still? It isn't an ordinary badge, you get extra privileges like getting in early. Let me know as soon as possible.

    I'm driving, I'm 27. Shannon is Driving, she's 31. Puzzle will drive too. He wanted first shift out of Phoenix. Plus at least one more driver I'm sure.

    July 26, 2012

  • Aaron Wolfe

    @EarthStar yah, I think you should be good.
    @Puzzle alright, I just thought I'd try. I'll be at the normal pickup spot then.

    July 26, 2012

  • EarthStar

    Paypal said that I sent 35 dollars to Pegasi. Is that right? or did I just throw away my money?

    July 26, 2012

  • EarthStar

    I just purchased a ticket using paypal and I received a confirmation email but no ticket. Do you know whether I'll receive it via email later or do we have to pick them up at the event?

    July 26, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    @Aaron can you email me where you live? I'll look into where you live and if you are on the way i can arrange to pick you up

    July 25, 2012

  • TJ Sullivan

    hello I'm actually a brony from Las Vegas and I heard you guys were going to be going through Vegas. Anyway I was very interested in going to everfree northwes. I have the money for my ticket and for all the other expenses. If its to much trouble I under stand but, if its okay, I'd really like to go with you guys

    July 25, 2012

  • Aaron Wolfe

    I was wondering, what route do you plan to take out of Phoenix? Cause if it's I-10 W you could just pick me up on the way. That would save me a lot of time and money.

    July 25, 2012

  • Josh C.

    I can pick people up if needed

    July 25, 2012

  • Jonah

    Regina, yes. Route 56 takes you into Ahwatukee and the route ends essentially at 48th St and Chandler, which is like....a mile from Puzzle's house. I may not be going, but if you for some reason need help coordinating a bus schedule, don't hesitate to ask me.

    July 25, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    It's going to be at my house near the outskirts of phoenix near the I-10

    July 25, 2012

  • Regina Richards

    Another question.. where are we meeting up for this and how do we get there? Like I live in the far west ghetto part of Phoenix. (Indian School >.>) Does the bus go to wherever the pickup is?

    July 25, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    I'll have a tip Jar at our big meetup

    July 25, 2012

  • Regina Richards

    My friend's not online right now to RSVP but count him and that'd be 11, with POSSIBLY a 12th person (talking to that person now and they said they'd think about it.)

    July 25, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    also just a heads up Everfree is looking for more staff you get free food, a spiffy shirt and a free badge to the next Everfree

    July 25, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    worst comes to worst Chris can see if he can get his badge transferred

    July 25, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    click on the person's name above their comment which will go to their profile and then click email

    July 25, 2012

  • Puzzle Plate

    I talked to Roy G. Biv, and he said it could possibly be transfered to someone else, also Regina Micheal didn't get the badge for your friend, he didn't have a name for the badge and you we're out. As far as i can tell badges aren't sold out yet so if you have a guest you're bringing and they haven't got one yet, i suggest getting one for them soon.

    July 25, 2012

  • Regina Richards

    Both or were you able to only one? And I should be able to get to a bank later today (hopefully) to pay you for them/it. Thank you very much! ^_^

    July 25, 2012

  • Chris (Tsitra360)

    I do have an extra ticket, I'm still waiting on knowing if its transferable or not.

    July 24, 2012

  • Regina Richards

    So were you able to get the tickets? o.o
