Reapercon 2017 home safe thread

Recommended Posts

@arouark and I stayed an extra day and went to the Dallas zoo and then drove home afterwards. It was a pleasant 4 hour drive. We're home safe and sound. Now she needs to start her D20 Rainbow challenge post.

 

I didn't get to meet many people but that is on me more than anything else.

 

I did match a face with @pcktlnt, @Dilvish the Deliverer, @knarthex, @Mr Melons, @MissMelons.

 

I met other people but only have about 8k of free memory... :)

 

Looking forward to next year.

That's a good way to do it! A couple years ago we did that, only we visited the botanical gardens. It was really cool and the extra day gave us the chance to do the forum dinner and stuff.

So happy to be home!

 

Those are some really happy doggies. 

 

Kitties are upset that we are going going straight to bed.

home safe....

 

on hangouts with Guindy, Buglips, Crowley, Pcktlnt, Reaperbryan,

 

I'm jelly. 

 

We had a 13.5 hour (Google estimates 12.5) drive because of Arkansas. (Dallas rush hour traffic didn't help) 

 

the time change put us at rolling into Greyhoards place at 10:30 EDT. Then half an hour back to our place.

Made it home. Finally.

FAR too much time in the airport (Mr. Thorne buggered up and put us on a late flight when he didn't need to, and the earlier flight  we were hoping to get transferred to was packed), and a vaguely amusing security check (... so, apparently, they had never seen Andi's cookies before..? I don't know..), a sort of three-hour catnap, a slightly bouncy landing (Mr. Airplane Pilot.. the plane? It is not a kitty toy....) and entirely too much walking and driving later.... We made it!

 

The Thorne Homestead appears to have survived our absence. The cats are not thrilled. But! HOME.

 

Unpacking tomorrow. Glad I got some pictures of the haul; I will /know/ if anything's missing.... suspect my haul of metal and plastic has also been rifled; we'll see if the safety pin survived....

Well I rolled in about 11pm last night.  Some rain to deal with the last 6 or so hours, but not much of a down pour.  Biggest hassle was getting around Indy at rush hour!

I made it home late Sunday evening (why don't I just wait until Monday to fly out?).  I can't wait to see everyone next year.  Only 50ish weeks!

      Ok, here are the rules:
      1) Please don't sign up if you were there, or if you had someone get you stuff from the con. This is supposed to be for people who weren't there. No, I'm not going to check, but the gods will know, and they will visit a terrible vengeance upon you.
       
      2) Unlike the regular version of the BoGW that you may be familiar with, you don't need to match anything you take. All of this stuff was donated by people to allow other people to get some cool stuff. So, take whatever you want (but see below).
       
      3) No sharing your picks. If it works out that everyone involved gets to pick 3 figures but you only want 2, you can't pass that extra figure choice down the line to someone else. Everyone gets to have the same amount of stuff, unless someone chooses to take less. If there's stuff left over, send it back to me and it'll get folded into the next regular Box of Goodwill. (Exact number of choices will be based on the amount of people signing up)
       
      Most of the stuff this time around is metal and resin miniatures. There are no Bones (I did receive a few of the monthly Bones giveaway figure, but they're all the same figure, and I was probably only going to throw in a few to round out numbers if it becomes necessary, otherwise, I was going to put them in the regular BoGW). There are a few non-miniature items, such as bags, dice, etc. There are not enough of these items to go around, so if you want a bag, for example, that counts as one of your picks.
       
      Any other questions, please let me know.

      Would there be interest in/support for doing this again this year?
       
      This is the basic idea behind it for those not familiar:
       
      The past couple Reapercons that I've been at, I have noticed a fair amount of swag bag/con exclusive figures that people didn't want getting tossed onto the melt table and/or left laying around.
      I had the idea of collecting all the unwanted stuff, putting it in a box and shipping it around to folks who couldn't get to the 'con so that they could sort of 'be there, too'.
       
      Unlike the regular BoGW, people donating wouldn't get anything out of the box, they would just be 'throwing away' the stuff they don't want in a slightly different direction. Maybe there would be a ribbon involved, maybe it might just be the thanks of people who will benefit done the line.
    • By Chaoswolf
      Ok, I've got the box organized and packed; hopefully I can make to the post office Monday to start it on it's way.
       
      Here's the list:
       
      Ratmaster 2000--arrived 10/31, sent 11/1
      SGhawkins 09--arrived11/2, sent 11/10
      ShadowPhase--arrived 11/13, sent 11/16
      Strawhat--arrived 11/19, sent 12/1
      GlitterWolf--arrived 12/10
      RobinH--arrived 1/8, sent 1/9
      Necromancer---arrived 1/14, sent 1/16
      Generic Fighter--arrived 1/18, sent 1/22
      Disserma--arrived 1/24, sent 2/6
      RedAmbrosia--arrived 2/8, sent 2/26
      Ttuckerman--arrived 2/28, sent 3/1
      Fire Eyes--arrived 3/4, sent 3/15
      Chris Palmer--arrived 3/18, sent 3/20
      Sanael
       
      If there's anything left, send it back to me, and it'll get put into the next (regular version) BoGW that happens.
       
      There are enough items included for everyone to make four (4) picks. After you've grabbed some stuff, seal it back up and send it the next person. This is all based on the generosity of people at Reapercon, so there's no need to put anything back in; this is a straight up gift.
      There are 2 pairs of sunglasses in there; they don't have anything to do with Reaper/Reapercon other than that they were in the swag bag, and (I'm guessing) donated by the city of Denton. If you want a pair take 'em, they don't have to count as one of your 4 items, unless your conscience dictates otherwise.
      If you want to help out with international shipping fees (and no one is under any obligation to do so) contact Strawhat, GlitterWolf, or RobinH to work something out.
       
      A big THANK YOU!! to everyone who donated stuff for this to happen.
