The PokerStars Blog team is settling in with a coffee machine and a 40lb bag of trail mix to get us through the two weeks. We've also started looking for a sherpa, but we're not sure we have the budget for it. In any case, we'll be looking for the most interesting stories as we cover every final table.
Good luck! (And if you are a sherpa and work cheap, let us know.)
