I’ve not yet been to a SLICS show, but I plan to attend this year. My question is about the Thurs, Fri, Sat schedule and how each day is typically attended. I was wondering if there are fewer people on Thursday since it is a weekday, or if there are more because it is the first day, and first chance to get at all the exhibitors and tables? Or do not all of the table-holders even show up on Thursday? I ask because my least expensive option it seems is to take a Greyhound bus from Bangor, Maine, and it will take one day to get there. I figured on traveling all day Thursday to get there Thursday night, then do the show all day Friday, and then go home Sat afternoon. But if the first day of Thursday is very well worth while, and very well attended, maybe I’ll travel Wednesday, but that means 3 nights stay in the hotel. I’m trying and hoping to figure out the variables and if the travel and hotel stay is totally feasible being that my main interest is AP pistol caliber cartridges, or if it would be somewhat of a bust in that regard to go all the way from Maine? I assume and hope it is worth it, and I looked forward to seeing everything this year since I hope to actually do a table next year. Anybody know a cheap way to travel from this far out? Puddle-jumper prop jets? Dirigibles? I’ll take anything.
