I call it "Hey I just booked a trip to AU, wait, why am I going to a board game convention and not wandering around AU...being a tourist" PAX.
I call it "Hey I just booked a trip to AU, wait, why am I going to a board game convention and not wandering around AU...being a tourist" PAX.I call it spend 3 days PAXing then go to the outback and/or coral reef while avoiding poisonous death trip.
I want to go. But damn. That's an expensive trip for me.I also think it will be a little funny if it's just Scott, Rym, and Churba. Or maybe Luke will figure out how to get there.
Scott and I have a secret advantage: money. Flying from wherever PAXAUS is to other parts of Australia is not a big deal. Only that first long flight is a problem: everything else is just details.
Oh, I agree and respect your expertise! Don't get me wrong. ;^) I think Scott hasn't thought through the distances between the things he wants to see. I have a better understanding just due to the extensive travel my grandparents undertook in Australia and New Zealand.

Yea, I just don't see any compelling reason to go to PAX AUS if you are an east coast gamer, however I do see reasons to go to AUS and hang iwth Churba :-p. Unless Rubin has suddenly got more then 2 weeks vacation in a year I doubt he has the time off to do AUS without cutting into some other trip he would want to do.
I will go to PAX AUS, just not PAX AUS the first. I make it my goal to go to every PAX in the world at least once, much like my goal to go to an anime convention in every state in the US.
I want to go to them once (well, not Alaska because it's a pain in the ass to get to, but besides that I do). I want to see how/if anime fandom culture in America changes regionally. The first example I can think of this is Daryl Surat's compare-and-contrast of Otakon to SakuraCon.
Australia - So nice, that The Woz just applied for citizenship.Also, something, something, Robert Khoo, The Verge, PAX Australia.
