Bouchercon Bound

Not quite yet, but soon.  My travel anxieties are kicking into high gear.  When I first started attending Bouchercon, I loved to go.  Air travel was fun.  Sometimes Judy and I flew on planes that were practically empty.  We didn't have to be at the airport hours before take-off.  We didn't get hassled when we got there.  We were treated well on the plane and off.  At least that's the way I remember it.  It's sure not like that now.

Besides from the hassles and unpleasantness, I don't like leaving home.  I'm comfortable in my own little atmosphere.  I'm sure I'll have fun in Baltimore, though, once I get there.  I hope to see some of you.  Be sure to stop me and say "hey."

As is usually the case, you have nailed the hit right on the head. My feelings exactly. And we WILL have a great time once we're there.

Enjoy! I'll be there in spirit.

I hear you, Bill. I feel lucky this year, since Baltimore's just a two hour drive from Philly. Air travel sucks.

I'm with you and Duane. I'm glad I can drive there.

See you Wednesday.

No matter where it is these days, we drive. They've taken all the fun out of flying--and they did it even before the terrorists did.

You just got back home and all settled in, no wonder travel isn't so appealing.

I'm sure you'll have a great time though, its not like a dried paint convention or anything, right? Murder, mayhem, death on the loose. Total relaxation :)
