Our upcoming twister trip

For the past fourteen years I’ve been going to GenCon in August, first in Milwaukee and lately in Indianapolis. But not this year. We’d decided that we didn’t need to go this time, since our books will be there with Key20 anyway, plus it’s tricky to work a show when you’re there with a toddler. My wife suggested that we take a trip to see friends and family instead. So that’s what we’re doing.
Here are our plans:

Friday, August 19: we fly into O'Hare Airport in Chicago at 9:30am. We're spending the day in the Windy City, and we hope to see all of our Chicago-based friends. Alex is coming up to hang out with us (yay!), and that night we'll be driving down to Kewanee.

Saturday, August 20-Sunday, August 21: Hanging out in fair Kewanee with Alex and the lovely Miss Amy. Sunday afternoon we'll be driving down to Des Moines to see my sister-in-law and her family.

Monday, August 22-Tuesday, August 23: Visiting in Des Moines. My in-laws will be joining us there, and either Tuesday or Wednesday we'll be heading down to KC.

Wednesday, August 24-Saturday, August 27: Hanging out in KC/Lawrence. We expect to spend at least two full days in Lawrence itself, going to old haunts (La Familia, Mad Greek, etc.) and visiting people.

Sunday, August 28: We fly out at 2pm. So we have time for socializing in the morning, though we may do it in KC rather than venture up to Lawrence and risk being late for our flight.

For those in the appropriate areas, we’d love to see you. For everyone else, we’ll post a report once we’re back, letting you know how it was.
