It seems I am going to be going solo to this convention, no one else I know locally is interested. I am looking for internet friends to chat it up with and hang out with so I am not so lonely at the event in August.

Guin - You should post over in the forum section for where folks are coming from... there may very well be people coming from your area. It's safe to say there are a lot of folks coming from a LOT of different corners of the Earth... Well, a lot being up to and including four corners.
And, otherwise, definitely don't be shy on here -- so far folks seem really really cool -- which warms our dark hearts immensely.

Hey, Guin- like so many of us, I think I'll be making the pilgrimage solo, too. Looking forward to both a guided tour of Lovecraftian haunts and more extensive wandering by myself. I'm taking some sketchbooks along to capture the cityscape and its denizen, so if I'm not out scouting around, I'm sure we'll be kept preoccupied with panels and movies and merchants hocking their wares... and the Darkest of Hillside Thickets show, of course!
I'm not much into the gaming aspect, but I imagine if you join in a CoC game, you'd have a circle of would-be cultists by your side the entire weekend!
Have you looked over the topics of the panels included in the last NecronomiCon newsletter? I don't think there's enough time in three days to attend everything of interest!
I'm coming out by myself as well. None of my real-world friends is really interested in this sort of thing, but I'll hopefully be meeting a number of online acquaintances in person for the first time. Interested in the various games, but it has been literally decades since I've played any sort of RPG or tabletop games. Hope there are sessions for noobs like myself.
And Darkest of the Hillside Thickets? WHAT?! I have not heard about this, but it would be a bucket-list thing for me!
I have always found the Lovecraftian community to be warm and friendly, and open to all. I believe acceptance and inclusion to be two of our community’s most important core values. Be one, a reader, a writer, an artist, or fan, all are welcome and all are significant. I think you’ll find this gathering to be a feast of very friendly folks and you will not be at a loss for things to do, or people to do them w/.

Hi Guin! My name is Alice, and I'm coming from NYC. Please feel free to say hello if you spot me. I'll be the girl in her 20s with pink hair and, probably, a Current 93 shirt. I'll also be volunteering Friday and Sunday mornings.
Same goes for everyone! Please say hi if you see me! I'm going solo as well and am beyond overjoyed for this convention. I pretty much consider it a religious occasion.
We Thousand Young are a friendly, if odd, group. I'm sure that if you are looking for folks to game with, tour, sit with at panels/movies, pub crawl, etc, it won't be much effort to find some like minded folks to go from one activity to another.
