We made it to San Diego (OK, actually Chula Vista) today, after a late start (which meant a late arrival). We’re settled in and unpacked, and now the only thing left to do is wait for the comics to arrive.
Here are some thoughts about starting a business from an RV and doing a trade show launch there-from.
It’s not as easy as you would think to find storage for two posters that measure 3′ by 4′ and which must arrive at their destination without dents or cat bites. We’re managing, but I’m going to look into what it costs to ship them for the next show, as opposed to trucking them along– it may be cheaper to just replace them for each show.
Similarly, office supplies add up when it comes to how much space they will demand in an RV. Fortunately, I have a little extra space set aside for these, but I can already see that I’m going to need a box for after the show storage and transport to Santa Cruz.
Styrofoam heads? Totally replaceable at <$4 apiece, and probably not worth carting around. On the other hand, bringing them up to Santa Cruz could afford hours of entertainment at a party.
The RV shakes a lot when I jump up and down. We have noticed this a lot in the past 24 hours, as the subscriptions come in.
