    Hi, noob here. I'm considering attending Pinfest 2015. It would be my first ever pinball show. I'd bring the wife and we'd be traveling from Brooklyn. We don't have a vehicle so we'd have to rent one. Which raises a handful of questions:

    If I were to buy my first pin there, what kind of a rental vehicle should I be driving? Will a pin fit in a car, or do I need a truck or a van? Do sellers typically remove the legs and fold down the head for the buyer? Or should I bring appropriate tools for this? Once I've got the pin to my front door and up two flights of stairs, would I be able to get it through my apartment door? Door's just under 29" wide. I imagine guys do this all the time, but what do I know? Maybe all pin collectors live on the ground floor or have spacious service elevators in their apartment buildings fitted with nice wide double doors.

    Finally, do most folks attend both days, or just one. From a player's perspective, I know that I begin to feel fatigued after three straight hours of pinball. After six straight hours, I'm pretty much spent. But then, I guess there's the flea market portion and the bar within walking distance? What do you guys do?

    Sorry this is all over the place with a million questions. Like I said, never done this before. Any pointers from you Pinfest veterans would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, and I hope to meet you in May.

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Are you sure you will be bringing a machine back?

    No, I'm not sure. But if I were to find a nice TAF at a fair price, I'd gladly snatch that up.
