Another year and another Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) approaches quickly. My wife and I, along with our good friend Lyle, have been attending PAX in Seattle for the last two years and this year will be our 3rd. I am really looking forward to getting out of Juneau for a few days and enjoying all that this gaming expo has to offer.
This year, I am going to do my best to just enjoy the experience and have as much fun as possible. In part this means bringing as little as I can possibly stand to bring with me to Seattle. In years past I have brought laptops, cameras, and lots of clothing. This year, I want leave most of that garbage at home and just focus on enjoying the experience and the time with my friend and wife. So, I am leaving my laptop and camera. I plan to take as few clothing items as I can for the three day event and my iPhone to take photos and stay connected to the Internet and a couple of cigars for Lyle and myself.
With tens of thousands of people heading to seattle for PAX, the cell networks can get quite bogged down with that many mobile devices located in such a small space. In years past it has been almost impossible to post to updates to twitter. I am hoping things will have improved this year because I would really like to post updates and images to my Google+ account from the expo.
