I've been a sci-fi fan all my life... I remember camping out in front of the theater for 3 weeks to see Empire Strikes back in 1980. I've built Sci-fi models, watched just about every sci-fi movie, tv show, and lived, eaten and even created a few little scifi fan clips myself, but I've never been to a con of any kind even thou I've always wanted to. I've always wanted to see what comic con was all about and even wonderfest. But alas, now I'm 47 and find that I've got a lot of free time, but it seems as if I never have enough money or the cons are always too far and I never want to go to one of these things alone. Ex-wifes never were interested and I never had any kids... so now I'm at the age where I want to go to something but not sure where or even when to go. Am I alone here or are there other shut in guys like me?
