That is awesome brother, Please come introduce yourself.

First, certainly get to the expo early, the lines are long and may take a while to move.
Dont wait until you have to pee, to actually go lol. It takes a while to maneuver through the masses.
I would eat before you get in there.

At one point, remember to take a step back and take it all in. There's so much going on at all times, so many people, it'll go by in a second if you don't take the chance to look around and soak it all in. I'm sure a lot of other people will chime in. But a few of my suggestions are; make sure you clear your bowels before going in to the expo. You don't want to have to go #2 in that place, haha. Another suggestion would be to bring some sandwiches or similar. Food court prices are OK, and you'll be able to sample a lot of stuff while inside, but its best to bring something that won't spoil in a backpack or something.

1. You will have a blast.
2. As soon as ya step into the CAGE, you will be family.
3. Bring some money for some LE Animal t-shirts. Some sizes/styles sell out as early as Friday.
4. Bring a camera. Pack extra batteries and memory cards.
5. Read this in it's entirety and memorize it... http://animalpak.com/html/article_details.cfm?ID=430&section=

Take in as much as you can bro, your gonna be like a deer in highlights at first with all of the people and booths everywhere. Yoru gonna see your idols walking around and be pumped just to be there. Get in as much as you can and see as much as you can. Most of all have fun. Oh yea and make sure if you have to go #2 that you go before you leave for the expo bc those bathrooms get fuckin nasty real quick.

It absolutely does, and so do the great deals on the supplements. I know a lot of guys and gals that stock up for the year on some of the packs because of the deals

Wut he said... And because they are LE gear, they will never be re-made again... That makes 'em collectors items.

For Friday morning you should be fine, Saturday morning is a different story.
