I, because my party planner warned me to hurry up and decide, will be deciding maybe tonight. I want to go, thats not the problem. The cost involved IS. I am in the middle of an eleborate basement finish and the tightwad in me thinks the money could be better spent down in the basement...... instead of a mini-vacation. :)

Well, the decision has been made and unfortunately I will NOT be going to San Jose. :(

I will certainly miss seeing you all and hope you share the good times and photos with the rest of us.

Waco...on the other hand... is STILL within driving distance so that is a likely YES! :)

Good to go. I leave at 5:22am tomorrow. (I am NOT an early riser) I land in SF around 7:30. I'm staying at the hilton but I have no idea where the event is from there. Let me know if anyone else is staying there so I can figure outwhere the heck I'm going. LMAO.

Baxter Smith

The hilton is attached to the convention center. My wife and I are there as well.

Scott Hackler

Man I wish I was going. My wife must sense my disappointment in canceling our plans to go, because she asked me last week if I wanted to go by myself (1/2 the cost). I sure love that woman, but I wouldn't feel right leaving her at home. Have fun everyone!

I am here as well. I am at the Marriott. It is attached to the other side of the convention center. I arrived about 11am. I went over to the symposium area to see the layout. Looks like it could be a good tome.
