unfortunately I am going to have to miss this year but I am curious if anyone is going to head out west?

I thought about it, but decided it was too expensive.
Maybe next year in Wildwood (I think it's Wildwood). We could have an IKE Caravan there.

Count me in!
Let's get the planning stages in early!

Well OK, then. It's still a year away, but some thoughts:
Wildwood is about a 14 or 15 hour drive from the Chicago area. Depending on how many go, we can caravan in mini-vans or rent a one of those big passenger vans and drive that. My van holds six comfortably, 7 is a little tighter.

There are some multi-bedroom suites/cottages at Wildwood. I stayed in one once that had two bedrooms and a fold-out couch in the living room. We could get a couple of those.

I'm willing to figure out the transportation and do some driving if someone else volunteers to do lodging.

We would need a headcount to get started, and then maybe we can make a refundable deposit on lodging.

Count on taking a weeks vacation to do this.

I would also be game for this!

Perhaps we could look into an RV situation and that would take care of both???

Besides I should probably make it to a convention one of these days :)

I looked into RV's many years ago, and at the time they weren't a cost savings once you figured in gas mileage and overnight parking/camping fees. And there's the hassle of septic tanks and such.
But once we've got a rough head-count, I'll check again.

Has anyone found, or know of, posted (confirmed) dates of the event?

It was on the old AKA site that it was going to be in Wildwood. I can't find any info on the new site.
Maybe when it's fully up and running.
