Peparing for PAX East

The Penny Arcade Expo East is only 2.5 months away right now. I have my tickets and hotel room booked, but am still sorting out travel arrangements.

The first time you travel there, the cost and complexity of booking travel can be intimidating. Here are a couple of suggestions.

Create an account with Kayak or Bing and track air fare deals there. My favorite comparison engine is ITA Matrix. They are the software folks who power most of the big travel shopping sites, but the Matrix on their site is able to do very flexible searches.

Get on the Penny Arcade forums and read the PAX section. There are a lot of great people there and they're providing a lot of good travel tips and will point out good deals when they see them.

Consider taking the train. Moe Fwacky on the forums has organized a great thread that helps to get you on the right train with other PAX folks. Book a ticket, meet some people, and get an extra day of gaming in on the Eastern Train Alliance.
