Heading for LibertyCon
Miss D., our friend Alma Boykin and I are on the road, heading for the LibertyCon science fiction and fantasy convention in Chattanooga this weekend. It's a long drive, about 15 hours plus stops, so we're taking it relatively easy. That still beats dealing with the TSA and flying cattle class - and the cost works out pretty much the same.
This is going to be an interesting LibertyCon. It's moved to the Marriott Hotel, after many years at the Chattanooga Choo-Choo hotel in that city, which was never a very satisfactory venue. I don't know if it'll stay at the Marriott, or move somewhere else next year. I guess that's up to the organizers. For a while it wasn't certain whether we'd have a LibertyCon at all this year, so I'm glad they made it happen in the end.
This year Miss D. and I are presenting a minimum number of panels and discussions, as we're both pretty tired and need a break. We're treating this extended road trip as a chance to relax, meet up with friends, and generally recharge our batteries.
Blogging will be intermittent while we're at LibertyCon. I may have a chance to put up a number of posts and "stage" them for automatic publication at intervals, but that won't happen every day. At times like that, please amuse yourselves with the blogs and bloggers listed in my sidebar. They write good too!
