1 Trip, 2 Cancellations, 3 Airlines, 4 Lost Pieces of Luggage - We Finally Arrive for Dragon*Con 2000!
LA's lights shines below us like a huge carpet of jewels...
So, we started in Los Angeles International airport at the American Airlines baggage check-in at 7:00pm for the first leg of our trip to Las Vegas (the first of three legs to Atlanta--hey! with our incomes, we gotta fly cheap, y'know!). The flight was cancelled... So, undaunted, we quickly get booked on another flight two hours later. Alright, we're thinking, we still got time to catch our flight outta Sin City at 11:10pm.
We barely caught our flight out of Las Vegas--we sprinted all the way to the gate to catch it... and perspirated a little too much.
Next, we landed in Cleveland (who made up this travel route anyway!?), where we soon were told that our next connecting flight to Atlanta had also been cancelled! Luckily, we were immediately switched over to another flight on Delta only 10 minutes later and boarded without incident (whew!).
Jonathan, Cline, Ted, and Markus (L-R) eating at The Underground before getting our luggage back to our motel.
So, we're finally here. Dazed, tired, but ready to take on the convention! Tonight we had dinner with Dragon*Con's director, Ed Kramer, catching up on some final preparations before we drop the clutch and push the engine into first gear...
Here's the setup in our motel room so we can continue to update the site while we're out here in Atlanta(Jonathan and Cline).
