Just over 2 months until everyone gathers in LA. But many arrive early and see the city. Those side trips are great. I especially ❤️ when there is a sporting event to go to.
In Vancouver, we saw roller hockey. Unfortunately that is a sport I have not seen much of in years.
I have seen baseball in Pittsburgh, Chicago, St. Louis and New York. In fact, we detoured to New York in 1986 to see a game on the way to Hartford.
Trips on the way to convention have worked too. We stopped at Hershey Park on the way down to D.C. for my first convention.
After trips are also fun. As long as we're that way, we went to Hawaii after Oakland and Alaska after Vancouver. Seattle too.
And seeing the host city is fun. Winnipeg had all their festivals at once and we took a shuttle to different ones. We not only saw the city, we tried great food.
In D.C., we were at the White House and FBI. In St. Louis we went up in the Arch. I thought the way we went up was like Mork from Ork"s egg. 😄. I remember walking around Laclede"s Landing too.
I know I have only hit a few of the trips over the years. But they are always fun and I am sure those going to LA are looking forward to their side trips. Enjoy!!
My First Blog
Hi everyone!! Lori, your site editor here.
I keep trying to think of ways to keep the site fresh and useful to everyone. I plan on switching out the pictures on the pages every so often, but I also want to give everyone time to see them. I'll leave the ones on the Past Conventions Page, but the other pages will change.
BTW, don't forget you can email me your pictures. Please let me know what convention they are from.
I have never ever blogged before, but I thought it might be a way to communicate and keep things fresh for those family members not on Facebook. So here goes.
It is my understanding others can post here too. So feel free. Just remember, the Social Media Committee has the right to censure or delete inappropriate posts.
I hope to post a couple times a week, as my schedule allows.
Let's have fun!
