Hi Ken,

Like you, I'm anxiously looking forward to Gencon. Luckily, I don't have as far a drive. Drive safe!

We've got about a five-hour drive to Indy tomorrow from Mt. Vernon, Indiana to visit relatives in Indy, then it'll be a sort drive downtown to the convention center and the Hilton. That's a drop in the bucket compared to the 17 hours it took us to get here in the first place. :)

Hope to see you at GenCon!
