Coming from Orlando with my girlfriend and her Frenchy. Gonna be a long drive for sure but well worth it, weve been planning it all year. Catching the Indians-Angels game on Friday night and seats are 4th row from Angels dugout. Praying to the baseball gods to snag a Trout auto...

Driving in from Jackson, MI with SkyboxAUTOS. We'll be at Slugger3469's booths 2017/2116 with Brettcollects2 and a couple other dealers. Stop by and say hi.

We'll have a nice variety of graded and raw cards. Plus we'll be manning Iluvfish2's stuff so you can all add a fish owned card to you collection and make your National complete!

Driving or flying?

You know, I keep hearing people talking about meeting up with BO members, some of whom they haven't seen in person before.

How are you identifying yourselves as blowout members (with moniker)? Are you wearing "Hello! My name is...." stickers or something like that, or just hoping coincidentally to bump into folks and get into conversation or what?

There's a Post Your Pic thread on here at the very least. I've considered making a shirt with my name from every board on it, but that might take a while.

Oakland CA by way of Maryland. Probably an 8 hour+ trip with layover for the Southwest perks mentioned above. This is my first National, not sure what possessed me.

FYI...Southwest, Frontier and Allegiant still have cheap flights available out of Tampa or St Pete Clearwater for Allegiant. I am flying out of Tampa and back into St Pete.

Good luck with your drive...I also collect a lot of USF guys (class of 93)
