First time Gamehole Con advice 2 months 3 hours ago #85

I'm driving to Madison and will be driving to the convention most days to have somewhere safe to leave my stuff. Happy to let anyone else stash their gear in my car if they would like. Staying at Home2Suites in the unofficial TD hotel block.

I was just planning to get an Uber or Lyft from the airport to my hotel.

Get a Zuca, so when you reach your token destination, you also have a seat ;)

Same.

Unreliable isn't something I've experienced, but I'll take an actual cab if needed.

For all the traveling Ive done lately (admittedly not too much) Ive had to wait much longer and pay much more to get a ride. They have all definitely lost a lot of drivers. I’m worried that a smaller area like Madison is going to be worse.

I was planning on using something like Lyft, but guess I’ll see.

Call your hotel and see if they have a shuttle.

What an excellent idea. Did a little research. The Sheraton advertises an airport shuttle on their website. The Holiday Inn also has an airport shuttle and a complimentary shuttle that will take you anywhere within 3 miles of the hotel. Home2Suites specifically states that they do NOT have an airport shuttle. The Clarion offers "courtesy transportation", but I'm not 100% certain what that entails. Couldn't find any transportation amenities for Comfort Inn. It's still worth checking into.

Just spoke to Sheraton. They DO NOT have shuttle service Wed Thurs but said Uber and Lyft are plentiful in the city so that should be the go to if you are doing Sheraton

Fingers crossed. The first full weather forecast for the con is in for Wednesday thru Sunday
Highs 64-67 degrees
Lows 46-49 degrees
partly cloudy each day

normal for that time period would be around 60 for a high and 35 for a low. It's still early, so a lot can change. Let's just hope this holds. At the very least, let's try to avoid a freezing rain or snow.
