I will be with you again.

Booked flights the other day. The plan so far is to go to Baltimore (MD), New York (NY - duh!) and Boston (MA). Couldn't fit Seattle on because it was just far too expensive, and I suppose it's like saying "I'm in London - so I'll just pop over to Istanbul while I'm there". Humph.

But I am planning on meeting up with people in or near Baltimore, New York and Boston, and I have a few spare days with which I could travel to other places vaguely nearby. For ethical reasons (i.e. carbon dioxide levels) I will only use ground transport, & for practical reasons I don't really want to spend more than 5 hours at a time travelling. But apart from that anything goes :)

These are my plans so far:

Also, if you are either a) a US person wanting stuff brought over from Europe or b) a UK person wanting stuff brought over from the US, let me know. If you'll be at alt.polycon it makes import easy, but if not I'm already bringing with me presents for mactavish, jinian, elynne and griffen, which I'll put in the post from the US to save postage costs. So I don't really mind having to post more things. If you want anything bought at either end, I'll buy just about anything (except cigarettes or dead animal) as long as you can get the money to me somehow (cheque or cash in the UK, PayPal or cash at alt.polycon from USians).

I will almost certainly be coming back through the Goods to Declare column at Customs (the likelihood of me spending less than £160 is low, bearing in mind the POKEMON CENTER), so if you're wanting to avoid import duty I'm probably not the best way to do this. Although you will only have to pay your share of the import duty and VAT, not the 300% "handling charge" that the various couriers stick on...
