Well this beats my original plan of "How many people can I fit into my apartment without my landlord getting upset"

Boston is not central. Do you guys even geometry? What about the Arizonians and the Floridians?

Yo Shnoork, I didn't forget us Canadians. Just CanCon - Oasis Edition is gonna take a few years. College and I can't drive. I didn't forget about us, promise. Maybe we can do a CanCon Oasis livestream or something in a Timmies? So many future plans!

Editors Note: Would probably have to be a Ontario GTHA Con due to college and possible adult job. I know a few who probably be down for it though.

Maybe we could have some sort of carpooling, but for planes. Some airlines are cheaper when it's more people in the same party. buddies are always fun too .3.

South of Philadelphia here. We could have people meet up at certain points, then travel together from there. EG: Me and Lina can meet up in Philly with people from around eastern PA/Delaware/NY/Jersey, then Amtrak it down to Nashville. I'd totally be down for this.

That'd be perfect.  I live a little north of Providence RI so my only issue would be not having my ma freak out meeting people from the internet. But somewhere in Massachusetts or RI area works best for me, otherwise I don't think i could make it

Am definitely up for meeting in Philly *-*

A skype or fb group for oasiscon would probably be good idea later to work out details (after dates are decided and stuff). Lists, of what to bring, dates, what train we're taking for those of us traveling together, when/where people are meeting, activities and noms, etc.
For example, someone could bring a game console and we could all bring games and extra controllers (J*-*)J
WE COULD BRING BOARD GAMES TOO THO

Well reading all this the last few days might have shot down my ideas for the oasis con 2017.

And right now it's looking like i might not be able to attend. I'm heading to north Carolina in 2 weeks transporting 3 llamas to their "new" home to reunite them with their owners after boarding them for 3 months. On top of that i got a lot of nails and de-worming rotations to do all over Michigan Indiana and Ohio coming up. Currently I'm at an unknown as to if i can attend or not.

Whooo! Maple Country! Its really cool to see us trying to organize this. Even if it falls through it shows how much of a family we are. Makes me proud inside.

Well my idea sounds lazy on my end but I'm sure it would be fun for everyone. I will talk about my ideas when the time comes in 2017

Shady. Nashville isn't all country music but it is the county music capitol of the U.S

I can bear country moosics if it means seeing you guys .3.

Regarding dates/times - traveling close to holidays can be more expensive and insanely crowded. There aren't many summer holidays tho so that's helpful. Other ways to avoid crowds is to travel at times that inconvenience most people (ex: mid week, late night, early morning).

Bringing a cellphone and keeping it charged is a good idea in case people get separated somehow. Exchange cell numbers with travel buddies. If smartphone, try to save up some data in case you need to consult google maps on 4g. Use Apple maps at your own risk.

Bring money. Always bring more than you think you will need. Some cash is good to have on hand even if you are bringing your cards. Never know when will need.

@Those interested in meeting in Philly to head to TN by Amtrak:
Spoiler:

The trip is over a day long, with a few to several hours gap between the couple transfers (Good time to eat better food and use a better restroom). I priced a round trip ticket in February 2016 and May 2016 (with no preferred time of day) just to see what price it would give. Both ended up around $390. This was the cheapest option, but didn't include beds. Prices change depending on time of day, availability, holidays, etc. That price doesn't include the ride to Philly from home.

If we all save enough to afford the beds we could do that, though it's about $300 more per roundtrip ticket. However, each ticket with that "superliner" roomette with the beds can accommodate 2 adults - so prices could be split. Also, apparently meals are included with those tickets. Other option is we could just bring tiny pillows and sleep in the seats without beds. I've taken naps on those trains before, but not everyone finds that doable (it may be after being awake for over a dozen hours though who knows). Either way, staying awake for almost 40 hours is not a healthy option, though possible. Plz nap

*It won't let me price anything but Business class with the Roomette. I don't know why.*
example trip and prices + roomette info:





The trip is a mix of trains and Thruway bus. Thruway buses are like those fancy coach buses.

When dates are decided, we will need to coordinate a meet-up time in Philly (with some cushion time to anticipate any missed trains or delays), then we all take the same train to TN. If you miss a train, it's not the end of the world - you can exchange your ticket for a later train at any customer service window. Beware though, the next train usually costs more than your original ticket.

The trip alone is going to be pricey. Food on top of that, plus hotel rooms if we end up needing those (unless we can all fit in Liz's place on air mattresses). Budget intensifies.

Side note -
How long will the actual event be? (aside from the great pilgrimage)
And how many air mattresses fit in your hous Liz o-o
I have one I could bring

Sry for long post tho. It's going for 3am, I have nothing better to do on a Saturday morning, and this gives me something to look forward to (L.3.)L
even if it falls through I'll have a bunch of money saved up that I could go use for whatever

Who agrees there should be an OasisCon every/every other year for those who cannot come OasisCon 2k16 (because a few of us, including I, will not be able to go to this one) I really do want to meet you guys xD but dad keeps saying "You guys could meet up over skype/facetime" HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THE PAAAAAAIIIIN. At least he said he'll think about it. Good thing I let him know ahead of time. I think Nashville is a good idea tho, since it is more central to where the most of us live
