    Safe arrivals!

    Though I feel like I should ask whether you wish to financially support TSA operations with your pre-check fee. Sitting on my hands now to avoid this being moved to Beekeepers...

    Wednesday Evening - Post Pizza Dungeon Gaming?

    Am I hearing someone is teaching a class on PF2? I'd like to see if I can /actually/ finish a character, just to see how the final version works. My group gave up in utter disgust on the playtest.
  3. Keeping in mind that Kerensky's own Clan is basically the Red Army, stars as organizational unit make perfect sense. They also tie in fine with the Tengrism of the Mongol Horde, and as for the mysticism - if you /really/ want to tell said Tengrists that there isn't more under the Great Canopy than the regular five senses can detect, I would advise availing yourself of a Fire Moth... ;)

    Fools! My army of cuteness-enhanced, hypoallergenic Siberian kittens will paralyze them all into inaction, leaving no opposition for my world conquest! Also, if every mad scientist has a cat on their lap, I can take over their labs and rummage through their lab notes.

    ... Evangelion without Fly Me To The Moon? That seems sacrilegious...

    Hm. 'Ex' carries the ablativum, and I wonder if you might not do better with 'profundum'? 'Profunditatum' seems rather philosophical. Also, shouldn't that be 'redde' (imperative) or 'redderes' (2nd person)? Also, the Lord's Prayer uses 'liberare' for 'to deliver' in that sense, but that seems better translated as 'free us from evil' there... Sorry, momentarily geeking out here...

    Well, yeah, someone's got to pay the bills. Why not the out-of-staters who don't know to keep to the speed limit...

    My route planning is starting to take serious shape. Feel free to take this wild idea apart. https://maps.roadtrippers.com/trips/25141160

    @OneBoot Your edit would be why Sylverthorne is not vetoing the idea, I think. I'l post a revised itinerary once I know a bit more about the pieces that still need to settle in place.

    @TripleH I cannot speak to availability of luggage space yet, that depends on other plans falling or not falling into place (among other things). @Doug Sundseth I was looking at that WY run and wondering. I'll certainly give some thought to cutting across the mountains instead, I am a mountain kid.

    So, no hovercraft. I did have the opportunity to sit down and beat out a tentative route Sylverthorne and I are going to take; any input is welcome. So far, I am thinking to break the trip up in roughly 500 mile stages. This comes out to roughly an 8-hour drive each day provided nothing goes wrong, which should leave enough time for fuel, food, driver change and "oooh, I want to see that!" breaks. This sets our roadmap to Mountain Home, ID (about 100 miles or so past Boise) Warmsutter, WY (seems to be in the middle of nowhere, might have to make this leg to Rock Springs, WY instead, depending on what a web search turns up) Clayton, NM by way of Denver, CO (a side trip because we have friends there) Denton, TX Is there anyone else from the NW planning to make the run by car? Does anyone know any of these general areas (or the stretches in between) and can recommend places to see, places to avoid, where the good food and clean lodgings are? I haven't yet vetted this plan for rush hours in metropolitan areas (particularly a concern for legs 2 and 3, due to Salt Lake City and Denver being on the way); anything else I should give thought to?

    Hovercraft. In case of a lottery win, definitely hovercraft.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I remember that making those up was a game back in elementary school. Longest word wins. And then there is the Satanarchaeoluegenialkohoellische Wunsch-Punsch... :)

    Lost my message... *sigh* Anyway, trains. We're looking at 96 hours in transit, going WA --> CA --> IL --> TX (can you say long way around?), for the low, low price of $1600 per traveller... I miss the European rail network right now.
