I left the house at 12:45 thinking I’d get up to Hunt Valley just before 2pm and be able to hang with friends for a few hours before the panels started. It wasn’t until just before I left that I was reminded that it was a holiday weekend. Now, it’s about 60 miles from my house to the convention. And naturally, events conspired against me.
I hit traffic almost right away and it never subsided. Couple the holiday traffic with a state funeral procession in Maryland and I was on the road for 3 hours and 45 minutes! I missed the first few panels I wanted to see.
But I am here now and having a beer to take the edge off that horrendous traffic. Looking forward to seeing folks this weekend.
Stay tuned for more.
