Every year there are an infinite number of different kinds of people that attend con. You have those that are cosplayers, those that are professionals in other categories, sports fanatics, Trekkies, Quidich players, literary gurus, artists of every kind, gamers and anything and everything in between. Everyone comes to con to have a good time. What we do to have fun is as different from one another as we are as individuals.
I have always had to travel quite a distance to get to con. In the airport you might not be able to pick out all of the folks going to con, but you sure can pick out a few on your plane. I love sitting in the terminal watching to see who all on my plane I might bump into at con and who I might want to chat with. It is kind of a game that I like to play, "Find the Con-ers". Once we get to Atlanta, they city is all excited about having us there. There are signs welcoming us to their fine city and also to Dragon Con. Pretty cool! It is pretty easy spotting the others like me once in Atlanta...we are EVERYWHERE!
