In my opinion 2 days would be more than enough time to see everything for your first trip. Second trip you have more of a lay of the land and then start to explore other things as well.

That's kind of what I was thinking. It's an important consideration when every night in a hotel is like chucking a Spydie out the window! :eek: :D

Agree, going 2 days early to help a friend set up. $$$$ Its fun though. No complaints..........

So excited! I just booked my hotel. This will be my second year in row. Last year was amazing. I took my son and he picked out his first Spyderco, a Delica Wave. He is 10 yrs old. He wants to go back this year too. Undoubtedly to get another Spyderco out of dear old Dad.

This year the Braves are playing home games right across the street, so I bought us tickets for that too on Saturday evening. There are no big league teams in Indiana, so this will be a treat for us.

Maybe someone from Spyderco can chime in if they will make Blade Show tickets available to Forum members again this year? That was so cool last year.

I booked my hotel last week. I tried to halfway organize a get together for some of the forum members last year but not much came of it. I did get to meet 4 or 5 of you by chance at the show, but if anyone wants to get together for breakfast or something that first morning I would be there for sure. Chime in here if anyone is interested and we'll try to come up with an easy plan before June.

p.s. I haven't seen a baseball game in 20 years. That sounds like a great idea!

Not sure, starting a new job in a couple weeks so may have to pass. I went a few years back and it was a blast!

What do you think of a Spyderco "bug" necklace with your screen name engraved on it?

I'd love a piece of Spyderco jewelry. I want to try to make it this year. Getting a room by the time I would be able to find it all out will be the issue though.

I'd definitely be in for a "bug" necklace! Would love to finally go but, as much as I would like to try and make it this year, I have a trip to Colorado already booked 2 weeks following Blade show, so it seems unlikely for me :(

If you run into trouble finding a hotel room, I would suggest looking into the service "AirBnB"! I've used it many times and have always been able to find a good place to stay for a reasonable price.

This is why you have all the good ideas. :cool: What a cool way to identify each other as we make our way around the show. I would totally buy one of these.

Anyone know any good restaurants out there? I think my favorite so far was Pappaduex’s but I haven’t ventured out to that many places.

Honestly I’m kind of surprise that there hasn’t been much talk about it yet from sal, kristi and co. As I remember them starting a thread about blade last year. Believe it not that’s actually how I found out it was here in GA lol...

I don't venture out in Atlanta much at all. You can find yourself in a very bad place very quickly unless you really know the area. The Marietta Dinner is close to the show. I never have any time to go out anywhere. I go down on Saturday morning,eat breakfast on the way,eat lunch at the Galleria and go to the hotel for a shower and clothing change before returning for the Busse induction dinner that runs well into the AM. I then go to the hotel and sleep for about 4 hours get up eat breakfast at the hotel or the Waffle House and head back to the show.
