So. We're here, in Richmond. We've checked into the hotel (a Holiday Inn Express) and it's not bad (and really not bad for what we're paying compared to the conference hotel.) The trip up was quick. The hotel has wireless internet, so we're sitting here getting our fix. We'll wander out and find some food in a bit; the other half of the crew isn't getting in til 10 or so.
The really dumb thing I did today (and hopefully the only thing?) Forgot my poster. We were past Burlington when I realized this. E. woulda gone back for it, but I called the folks who are coming up this evening and they're grabbing it. I feel really, really stupid.
I'm car-grubby, so I think there's a shower for me before dinner.
