[travel] The trip from Portland to Missoula

We set out from Portland around 6 am, following this route through Mosier, Clarkston, and Lolo Pass (Montana, not Oregon), then down to Missoula.

The first real stop, besides a rest area or two, was Mosier, Collapse )

The last part of drive was in fairly heavy rain, at dusk, on a winding mountain road, with deer darting out of the verges. It was pretty exciting. But in the end, we are here and getting keyed up for the convention, and quite happy about it.

As usual, lots more at the flickr set

[conventions] MisConeriffic

This is a very nice little con. Had a panel today entitled "Writing Roundtable", followed by me interviewing myself as author GoH, then opening ceremonies, then a quick dinner break, then a panel on writing, and a reading by my friend Cthulhubob. Plus parties and half a new story written and miscellaneous low key messing about. First panel at 11 tomorrow. Don't wait up for me.
