Thanks to Christina for putting me up; thanks to Christian for being such delightful company; thanks to cleotyne, janehex, and brianchurch. Sorry to those I missed, but I'll probably be back out there before too long.
Thanks also to those who covered my ass on the Ludic Log while I was gone, including calamityjon and mckennl, and much thanks to thaitea for handling the technical end. I'll have a recap of the trip up on the Ludic Log sometime tonight for those who care.
I'd love to say that all was well, but I can't (see next post). However, I had a wonderful and incredibly relaxing time with some excellent company, and that's all I could have asked for.
