So, Consonance...

I think I'm going to Consonance.

I talked to pondside a couple weeks back and she said she was going. I told her that, work sitch permitting, I'd really like to go myself. I was looking at the cost of flights, then she realized she'd booked a flight to the wrong airport and cancelled it, and then we came up with this totally baked plan to drive there and back. About 16 hours in the car. Each way. Dude. I can hack a trip that long, but there is not earthly possibility I can drive for more than 4-6 hours in a stretch.

Of course, pondside is the crazy person who kindly flew out to meet me in Regina when I was coming back with my mom's car and then proceeded to drive the whole way back. The same person who pretty much drove from Ohio to Vancouver by herself last October. So. I think it's more a question of if she will actually allow me behind the wheel at all. I suppose she might still be remembering when I was sick with cellulitis on the drive back from Oregon a few years back. I could barely stay conscious but kept insisting I could spell her off and take a turn driving - right before I would pass out again. *grin*

So. Yeah. Baring any horrible life events, illness, losing my currently unbelievably excellent job, it's quite likely I'll be in California again soon.

Man. My whole LIFE I don't travel, don't get any farther than 2 provinces away from home - and in the last few years, I've been all over the place. Fandom, dude. It's *awesome*.

Re: It *is* awesome!
Yeah, that sucks. This whole working for a living thing keeps getting in the way of my fun time. What the hell dude? Don't the Ubiquitous THEY know that I have cons to go to? My mamma always said I should have been born rich instead of oh, so beautiful..

We travel to cons from time to time with sexybass who treats offers to help with ten hour drives as, "It's only ten hours. When I lived in Winnipeg...." :-)

Yes, I will be there.

Hope to see you there too!

I am happy you're coming here.
For somewhat evil reasons, granted, but I think evil reasons you'll appreciate...

Evil reasons?
What are these evil reasons that you speak of?

Now you have me intrigued...

Re: Evil reasons?
Sent you a private message -- the reasons cannot be disclosed until after the con :)
