Well, I made it. Actually there were absolutely no problems with the flight, the rental car or the check-in at the hotel. Other than the lunacy of paying $10 US a day for internet accesss, everything went really well.

Spent a few hours at the bar (indoor because it was “too cold” for the bar at the pool to open) and then of to the meet and greet for the conference. Nice to see some old friends and meet some new acquaintances. Quiet night tonight and then right into it tomorrow.
