“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

OK - it looks as if I have a good possibility of being able to go to Blogorado this year (thanks for the invite BTW!).  Here's the deal - #1 I don't want to deal with the hassle of flying w/guns; #2 I hate TSA, #3 I'd like to save some money...


If any of my readers in the "mid-Atlantic" area (Virginia particularly, but if close by...) are driving out there & have any interest in carpooling, sharing gas/lodging expenses etc. I'd be interested.

Hit me up in comments.

Miss D. and I are planning to attend, but I don't know if we'll drive (it's two long days on the road from central TN). If we fly, I plan to ship firearms and ammo via FedEx and travel with only one of them, to avoid hassle.

Excellent - I have an invite again this year, but again this year I will be with my Dad. I only have 3weeks of vacation a year and I spend it all there, except for a short trip to see Brigid Jr. He's 92. I'm aware, each trip might be the last. Between airfare and rental car it's $1000 + each time so just using long weekends is out.

Farm Mom was very understanding. I just can't justify spending time having fun with friends for a week, and not see him for 5 months as way of payment for it.

If I am in town, and you want to make a stop in IND (not sure if you'll come through here on the drive) you all are welcome to stop over for food, sleep and showers. My little crash pad condo has an extra bedroom with its own bath and a sleeper sofa.

Peter - I may end up going that route, but obviously not my preferred choice.

Brigid - thanks for the invite! If the trip routes that way I may take you up on it :D
