    Default Who is going down solo?

    It looks like I could be going down to the Intercot Party by myself. Is anyone else flying solo? I'm a little nervous about going by myself, not because of the travel, but because I don't know what it will be like to go to events when I've never met other Intercotees.

    If I go, I would be going solo

    ...I am also new to Intercot and "meets" as well. I would go for it. I'm sure it would be a lot of fun. I hope I can go!!!

    I went by myself a few years ago to one of the big meets, and had a very good time. There were actually quite a few solo participants and we spent some time together outside the meets a couple of the days.

    I'll be heading down by myself, but I've been to so many of these things that there are a few INTERCOTters who are like family to me.

    I'll feel right at home!

    I'll echo the above as well. I almost always go alone these days, but I'm not alone for very long! You'll have a great time, INTERCOTees are the BEST!

    Thanks for the encouragement everybody! Yesterday I was looking at info for MNSSHP and had a visceral reaction at the idea of not sharing this experience with my son, Jacob. I looked up my SW flight and found out that I could book him a ticket for the same price as mine, so I went ahead and bought him a ticket! I'm not going to be quite as solo as I was before, but I'm still looking forward to hanging out with other Intercot adults.

    I've decided to go with the heart this time, which coincidentally was in sync with the brain. Both said I should just DO IT!

    I will be there solo...and REALLY looking forward to the event!!!

    I'm going solo...

    I think it will be fun to have the opportunity to be with a bunch of friends, but to also be able to sneak off for some private time (aka shopping!!!) by myself!

    I'm trying to find a way to go to the Intercot weekend, but finances are tight. Just as a thought.... would any of the female travelers be interested in splitting the cost of a value resort hotel room with me?

    I'm hoping to be there from Fri afternoon through Monday morning. I promise that I'm totally normal and as neat as a pin.

    It's just a thought. PM me if you'd like to discuss it.

    I'll be flying solo. I've done it before for an INTERCOT meet. Trust me, you'll find someone to tour the parks with. Plus, sometimes it's fun to do some of it alone. Last time I had a blast wandering EPCOT for a few hours on my own.

    Also, the last big meet resulted in some very odd groups forming and doing weird things. The group I ended up in found ourselves at a Waffle House at 3 a.m. one night.

    In fact, I only got 2 hours of sleep that trip . . . John, our intrepid leader, may have gotten less.

    This time my goal is to eat my body weight in churros.
