[travel] Baltimore or less

In Baltimore now. My colleague and I were in the wrong city in Delaware, which took 75 minutes to correct this morning. All went well, now hanging in Hilton BWI Airport. Dinner at 7 if any of you Balticonners are in early, or local fen/writers want to come by and nosh with me.

And yes, I do know that Balticon is here tomorrow, but calendula_witch will be going to BayCon tomorrow. While I love you all here on the East Coast, she's there, you know?
