Got back late last night, too tired to post.

Really, still too tired to post, but...

Convention was incredible. Jill's posts about the sheer size of the thing didn't do it justice, IMHO.

More reports to come!

Just got back a little after 1 am.  It was such an incredible weekend!  It was overwhelming as to the sheer size of this event.  Next year, I intend to set aside more time for this event.  It rocked.  Got back just fine.  Very very tired.

Just got back as well. :) It was great fun (well, I actually detested the convention but I didn't come there for that). Thank you to everyone for making it so memorable and I'll type up a report shortly.

Welcome back A Karas  and Josh


Glad to hear you all had a wonderful time, and have made it home safe.

Now why does a Josh report sound more than a little scarey?

Well we made it back fromn SD and things were pretty good for the trip back. I have nothing to report beyond that it was one of those things you had to be there to understand.

Just as a BTW (this seems like the thread for it, in case anybody was worrying or wondering [Lil?]) I never left Yuma.  As usually happens with my diminished personal life, I got tied up with an emergency here, and I am leaving for Atlanta with our youth group for the week tomorrow, so ducking over on Friday got lost in the wheelwash... *sigh*

But it was fun to read all the people who did get there.  And there's the possibility of next year?  (At least for some?)
