The "coffee"  in the holding area beyond the TSA checkpoint is nothing more than brown water with a hint of flavor. :zombie:

I don't know if it was mentioned, but since it is important to know:

 

DO NOT FORGET YOUR ROOM KEY, YOU NEED IT TO ACTIVATE THE ELEVATOR FOR FLOORS 3 AND UP

 

Some people might forget because they're only going downstairs for a minute and somebody is staying behind in the room.  This is a new change from last year.

I'm ready.  Okay, I'm going to say it publicly... I am coming to Reapercon.  This will be my fourth attempt to go, but this time it looks like I will make it.  Twice before I had plane tickets, but ended up deploying and didn't make it to the con.  A third time (last year) I had a plane ticket, VIP ticket and paid for classes, but my wife got ill so I cancelled.  This time, fingers crossed, I will be there.  I see no hurricanes on the horizon, the rest of my family is traveling somewhere else already,  and I'm retired, so no last minute calls to go somewhere else.  I'm stoked, to say the least.  I'm flying out in a couple of hours, and will be at the hotel tonight!

We got out last night later than I expected but traffic cooperated and we made it to our overnight hotel. It's been a cruddy week (Mrs. Zoxe got declined for a promotion, my job imploded, and we had to call the plumber on Monday night due to a water pipe spraying in the crawl space, for a little while our trip was in doubt.)

 

Because of all that, I didn't set an alarm this morning and we're on vacation time! Means we may not make pizza tonight but we'll show up eventually! 

 

About to go down for hotel lobby breakfast and wish I were already atbthe Embassys spread. ::D:

Made it through security and am now waiting at the gate. Boarding starts in 40 minutes. I think this is my first time traveling with my tableware case that it hasn’t gotten a more intensive check.

I've been awake since 4am. Stupid insomnia.  Tea is made, breakfast is ready. Stuff is packed... oops, forgot the bag of melt!  May not be there in time for pizza, no matter. 

 

Happy trails everyone.  See you at the con.

Security theater took a mere 2 minutes. Now waiting to board... Only 80 minutes to go, then another half got before wheels up... 

 

 But I'm on my way!!

I have been awake since 4am, cause had to take husband to the airport. He gets suckier flight options cause this whole hub spoke system, few airlines out of NYC wanna go to Louisville. Weird.

If you see one, stop in at a Buc-ee's.  We did and it is indescribably amazing.  I don't buy souvenirs and tourist crap, but I *had* to get a Buc-ee's hat to commemorate the visit.

 

It's the Super Heaven of gas stop places.  IT IS AMAZING.

There's one near HQ now, on 35 E

It got better once we had the minis in the car! ::D:

 

On the road now, I'm navigating. Weather is better than last year!! We spent 4 hours driving in a washing machine across Missouri.

Slept like a rock. 

 

My rock is in the toolbox.

 

Need to large print label some photos and make a few short family trees for Grandma (per her request) for her to remember who her great-grandkids are. 

 

Then I head out towards the con!
