I didn't really fancy the hassle of that after a long flight as well.
I contacted some people who said it wouldn't take long by car but my husband didn't fancy the idea of driving on strange roads either after a long flight. (He said I'm a rubbish navigator at the best of times! <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ /> ) So, that was why I didn't get to the convention. I did however have a few days in NY and 12 nights in Florida.
Also, as I had been changing jobs, (I'm about to start another new one tomorrow. This will be the third I have been offered in as many months so I must be as good as I think <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> ) it wasn't an easy decision to book holidays in advance.
It sounds as though you had a good time and it's a shame that there were so few from here. I agree that it would be good to have both the IPBA and the Compact Convention at the same place and time as I enjoy both and it's a long way to come from Scotland. If I saved one fare that would mean more money to spend!!!
