    Backscatter & I will drive from Virginia to Cincinnati on 4/22, we will attend the Customizing class on Wednesday. Thursday will be open until time to line up in the 'store' line. Thurs - Sun. we will pack in as much a humanly possible, then start the trip home after the closing bell of BotCon.

    I get there at around 10AM on the 23rd and leave on the 28th. In between will be a alcohol induced blurr. I get home just in time to help my friend celebrate her 21st. Then 3 days later another has her 21st. My liver is going to hate me after those two weeks.

    We're driving from Boston to Philly, spending a couple days there with family. Then we wiil pick up Liokaiser and drive to Cincy early Thursday, get there in time for pickup.

    hang out, drink and party as much as possible with the TFW crew (this is the most important part), then the long ride home.

    Rolling up into Cinncinnati mob deep in a minivan early Friday morning. Just couldn't squeeze Thursday into the schedule.

    Hopefully carpooling with ATLianz and any other Georgians I can find. Spending three days geeking out and drinking, then back in the OR in Cordele, GA early Monday morning.

    I'm telling my preceptor I have drill that weekend. Nobody can say no to the Army, because if you do, you're helping the terrorists. And it's just easier that using the phrase "toy robot convention."

    Wednesday probably, it really depends on who all shows up on that day. Definately on Thursday. I will have internet access and will update a thread daily. That worked last year.

    Those going out after hours remember. Don't go to Over the Rhine. That is in the North East part of town. Even downtown is risky if you don't know where you are. Finally staying in large numbers always helps.
