This looks doable for me, but the missus has meetings with students on Labor Day.

What I liked best about the hotel was when I walked into the Lobby with Parker (my dog) and learned that (a) dogs aren't allowed; (b) service dogs are allowed; (c) hotel staff aren't allowed to ask if a dog is a service dog. Perfect

Parker playing the role of a service dog. Now that's funny.

I would love to come to this year's Fest. Not sure, as I am currently looking for work. I had two interviews the past couple of weeks that went really well; one near Boston and another near Chicago. If I land in MA, then I would try to be there with my buddy n8ronJ. If in IL, that would be difficult. If no job soon, then no chance.

It's a very serious responsibility.

I loved the Maine fest, but I'm somewhat surprised that Detroit wasn't picked again, though. Middle of the country, lots of car culture, history, museums...I'm Monday morning quarterbacking and I apologize.

Maine was great, though. Awesome drive up, amazing scenery, the Mt. Washington drive was classic. It was surprisingly very, very fun - and the lift ride to the banquet was a really nice touch. Good venue all around.

We were looking at Detroit/Ypsi again, but the budget wasn't adding up. Food pricing increased nearly 30% and there was an increase in hotel rooms; the value just wasn't strong enough. No worries, we'll be back there for the Detroit Auto Show in January!

I am sure Parker is the best therapy dog around.

I've got something that looks like that hanging in my basement stairwell. It has a wooden handle and is used to mop the floor.

Thumbs up

Some pictures from last weekend's trip to Sunday River...

The sunset view when we arrived on Saturday evening


Slider's restaurant where we will be having the meet & greet. It extends out onto a large slope-side patio


Heated pool with two hot tubs


Awesome panorama of the back side of the hotel


I got a ride in a snow cat! View of the hotel from the top of Lollapalooza


Pisten Bully 400... what an amazing machine


Losers in the lobby! (references: here, here, here, here, and here)


Lobby fireplace


Covered bridge over Sunday River


At the end of the Chondola at the top of North Peak where the Sunday banquet will be held
