Hey, all. Leg 1 vets, how long are the outside merch booths open? I'll be driving into San Diego Thursday afternoon around 2. The booth is set to open at 12:30. Is that going to be too late to get my goodies?

    You will be fine. Depending on the place, that was actually the better time to go. If you go at 12:30 there were folks waiting. If you let the back up go, there's little line. Of course, then there was Philly where the line moved but was steadily a 45 minute or so wait.

    Not sure exactly when they closed, but you'll be fine at 2 or 3.
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.

    Any predictions showing up at 5 or 5:30? Is everyone there picking up tickets by that point and the line an hour long?

    I rolled up in Charlotte about 3:30ish. I stood in the merch line outside and was about 50 yards back. Probably 30-40 minutes.

    They ran out of posters about 20 people in front of me. It seems like every damn person was buying posters. I was so bummed, but they brought out a stack of 20 or 30 more posters and I was about to get one. I wanted the Charlotte specific shirt but they were sold out at the outside merch booth. I made the decision to wait on buying other shirts because I wanted the venue specific shirt the most. When I entered for the show, they were sold out of almost every damn thing. Eventually I asked the inside merch lady to tell me what they had left in larges after she kept telling me they were out of my top choices.

    My advice is to buy everything you can outside and as early as possible and not make the mistake I did. I ultimately got that show specific shirt but it cost me about $85 on the Bay.

  • Showed up 2 hours before show time in Charlotte, all posters were gone, were only available inside. Those didn't last long either and I didn't get one. Merch booth line was about 5 people deep, almost everything was available.
