    It was talked about over in FFComms so I'll also ask it here:

    Is a forum going to be created for C3? It would be nice to have all the information in one tidy little place :)

    I wish I could go to a large JC/TFN gathering, yet as it is I am flying out to Russia with my church. And that alone would suck all the energy from me... :(

    Why is a church flying you to Russia in 2005?

    Yeah, those pubs better have decent beer. None of that Yank swill, good Aussie brew.

    They had Fat Tire there last time if I recall correctly. Great brew from Colorado. :D

    So would everyone like to see an official JC party set up like the FF one? If so I volunteer to help coordinate.

    My Winnegago will have a keg of American swill in it. The whole thing should smell like a giant beer fart if the trip is succesful.

    Dagsy, when are you coming to America? And will you be wielding a giant knife and crocodile boots?

    That reminds me, I'll be 21 by Celebration III so I can hit the bars with the rest of the 21+ JCers.

    Bobafetish- Dude, that is the COOLEST idea ever! You so hafta do the roadtrip documentary, that woudl be awesome. Then upload it so we can all see it!

    RMCOY- "It would seem fun to go, but the chances of anyone coming within talking distance of me aren't there."

    Dude! I would love to meet you. You're the one who never talks to me, doesn't read my LJ, and always is suddenly busy when I IM you. So it's not that *no one* would want to talk to you, it's apparently the people you want to talk to wouldn't. Or soemthing.

    I second the motion for a CE III forum.

    I think its a good idea so that all the new info and prices can be posted to the forum so that we know what to do. Then we can all post stories after it is over.

    I vote for a C3 forum!

    The "Celebration II forum" was changed into the "Fan Force Conventions Forum" after CII, wasn't it?

    I'm there. I'm gonna save my nickels and dimes from now until then, then charter a greyhound full of other SW nerds from the D/FW (Dallas/ FortWorth) area and show all you folks that things really are bigger in Texas. Especially Sci Fi "Nerds"! :p



    The chance to meet Sarlacc alone, will be worth the price of admission. Hey, how much does it cost? [face_mischief]


    *Visions of GS siging autographs at TFN table fill my head!* :D

    Nah, I dunno about an autograph, but I would love to meet him and a lot of the JCers and mods. It would be really interesting to see who hits it off with who irl. Like, will it be the same people as online, or will people who never paid any attention to each other on the JC see each other irl and be like instant buds?

    Adventuretouring.com has RV rentals for 108 bucks a day if you rent for 3-6 days. 6 days sounds about right, so that's $648. Factor in gas, beer, a place to camp out, there's probably a mileage charge hidden in there somewhere....

    I'm figuring if I can get 5 other people, the whole trip will run about 350 a person, not counting what we'd spend in bars and restauraunts. I'm pretty cheap, though, so I'd want to hit Costco for food and stuff before we leave.

    Anybody know where I could rent a High-def camera for a week and nor break the bank? Better yet, any aspiring filmakers from the Boston area who enjoy beer and own a camera?

    And what route would I take from Boston to Indy, and who lives along that route? I know mapquest will tell me a route, but not THE route that would enable us to stop at JC'ers houses along the way.

    I'm getting really excited.

    Have you tried asking in the Boston FF board? I bet you could round up some troops pretty fast.

    Cool Obi-Anne!

    I will start a fan-force thread directing people there with a brief synopsis of the Road-trip Winnebago Star Wars Spectacular(with apologies to Debo)Convention Beer-Swilling Experience.

    Not the catchiest title, I know.
