We made it!

Just a quick post. The hotel charges for wifi except in the convention center so I am typing on my husband's iPad. The hotel is lovely but not terribly practical for this size con. there are many building's on the hotel's "campus" so it is easy to miss seeing people. for anyone on their way here, we don't recommend the airport shuttle reservation system that the con website offered. you end up waiting for a specific shuttle while hordes of other shuttles wait in line and depart every few minutes.

The weather is great, though, and the view of the mountains is lovely. The bag o' books is stellar this year, too.

Will post more later.
