So I had a ton of fun at DEFCON 19 this year. I wish I could have brought you all with me. We'd of been a perfect fit for entering the beer cooling contest or figuring out the secrets of the badges this year. Few people came up to me and said "i3Detroit? are you one of the redbull guys?". Our name precedes us. While talking with some fellow Great Laker's at the Saturday pool party, one of them (I forgot who... free beer *sigh*) mentioned traveling by train instead of plane to Las Vegas.
"Hackers on a Train": a con on the way to defcon?
Think about leaving from Detroit then to Chicago then onto Las Vegas. about 30-35 hours one way, but we'd have the ability to bring stuff, sleep, drink, eat, and if we work some PR magic maybe setup a soldering station enroute.
