Arrived.  Brought a pile of K-Cups thinking we'd have a Keurig in the room, but the coffeemaker uses the teabag-looking pods and not K-cups..  A search for more pods proved fruitless, so we solved the issue by buying a coffeemaker at wal-mart.  This is my travel coffeemaker now.

 

Thanks for the heads-up.  I was about to throw some hot chocolate cups in the bag.  DH will have to do without. 

 

My entry is as finished as it's going to get, and everything is packed.

Jeep is ready for the second leg of this trip. Feel like a kid going on their first trip to Disney land. ::D:

Glad to see this before I got some k-cups.

We had a Keurig last year in our premium room, but this year we got a different room on the third floor.  The upgrade last year wasn't worth it.   So I don't know what rooms have Keurig and what don't - just that last year's did and this year's doesn't.

Everything is as ready as it will ever be.

 

All packed except for meds and tablet, which are always the last to get packed. 

 

Ready to start my journey tomorrow at 5:00 am.

@Pegazus: If I'm on the Bingo card, you might have to make me a free space for Wednesday night.

 

Nah, Thursday is the start. If somebody can’t wait until then, why I’ll, I’ll ... have no idea what to do. Shrug maybe. 

 

Anyway, heading to bed for the final leg tomorrow.

We've got a two cup at a time Cuisinart that looks to be something that would sell for $14.95 at Wally World.

Any pictures from those of you already on site?

 

Yes, several; I'll work on uploading those soon. The place looks super neato! 

 

Had the aforementioned encounter with @Green Eyed Monster and his sweet wife (Samantha the tortoise is also here but haven't met her yet), and saw @buglips*the*goblin and @Guindyloo in passing in the lobby. Also several Reaper folks! @haldir Gene says hi back. ^_^

 

My travel adventures finished off with me forgetting to grab my checked carry-on bag from the carousel, due to being thoroughly distracted chatting to Gene van Horne and Michael Proctor. :lol: Both of them were not only on my flight, but we all were in the same carpool to the hotel (if you teach a certain number of classes Reaper takes care of transportation). 

 

I was able to catch a ride back to the airport with the two of them later on when they went to pick up Jason Wiebe, and easily recovered my bag (thank goodness, all my class stuff was in there!). Then all four of us + Ron got a very late dinner at Texas Roadhouse. It was a fun and fascinating time hanging out with these guys who've known each other for ages, swapping old stories and talking shop, and I'm just over here secretly going "oh my gosh I can't believe this is a thing that is happening to me :wow:".

 

I've also been sworn to secrecy multiple times regarding a few upcoming things that were discussed at the table. All I'm gonna say is there's some SUPER cool stuff in store, and one thing in particular that a lot of people will be very excited about! :bday:

 

Huzzah!

I leave in four hours. Just about everything is packed, I just need to grab/double check essentials before I leave. Here's hoping I can manage to sleep for a few hours before 4 am comes

*sudden realization*

 

I FORGOT MY SHINY ROCK FOR @Ludo D:

 

Also my purple kitty hat. 

 

...Maybe I could sculpt and paint a rock? :unsure: I could paint it real shiny too. 

 

--Huzzah!

Thank you for the reminder!  

 

Interesting evening...  not to self:  if you decide to take something for judging, make sure it's designed to move.  I picked up my diorama and it fell apart in my hands.  No permanent damage done but the evening was spent painting and gluing rather than langorious packing.  That was rather rushed.

 

5 hours till we leave.  I should go to sleep!
