Another great post from: http://sdccblog.com/2013/05/countdown-to-comic-con-2013-packing-and-arriving/
After months of scheduling, packing, and anticipating you finally get off the plane in San Diego and think “what now?” Do you rush out to get passes, relax in your hotel room? Eat? And what if you forgot something important? Let’s just relax and start at the beginning.Other than the basics (clothes, toothbrush, etc) Here are some special SDCC must-haves:
*Mandy's Mind - Last year they gave out these tubes, but it was a massive line and they ran out the first couple times I tried to get them, so this year I plan to bring my own!
*MM - Yes, HUGE error for me last year, I had flip flops... only flip flops... with my bad knees and bad back and long lines and camping out.... bad scene. I ended up sore, achey (then some crazy bitch tried to grab an empty seat beside me.. her attempt to jump OVER me ended with her landing ON my knee... and I had to be wheeled around in a wheel chair for two days - epic fail!)
*MM - Last year we had food stocked in our hotel, I lived off of Gatorade and nuts and pringles and dried fruit. Long lines and panels REQUIRE hydration and snacks!!!
*MM - ahem!
*MM - yes! must have!
*MM - I always back my luggage inside a larger luggage OR in my suitcase I have an extra empty suitcase or bag, you always go home with A LOT more than you came with!
