Troy Marriott, Troy MI
General reminder that this weekend is ConFusion on the other end of the state from West Michigan. You can get more info via my post about my Six Panels and A Reading at ConFusion here.
Getting There Is By No Means Half The Fun
I mean, who wants to drive I-94 in Michigan, even if you can switch over to I-69 in Battle Creek and I-96 in Lansing? Thankfully, the weather looks to cooperate, at least on the trek eastward. My second class ends at 3pm. As soon as I can, I'll hit the road, getting off the overly used I-94 before rush hour formally begins. But times vary. Not sure if I can make it to Troy, fight the last few miles of heavy Detroit traffic to I-75 and then up to Big Beaver Road -- yes, that's its name, no snickering you in the back row -- check in and grab my con badge in time to hear Cat Valente's reading at 7pm. But that's how things go.
Good news is that the big western storms that dumped so much snow in the Californian mountains will be reduced to rain on Sunday, high around 42°F. So that when I leave ConFusion between 1-2pm, I at least won't have to deal with ice and snow.
If You're In The Area
This is a really nice regional con and it attracts lots of writers, editors, artists, fans of all flavors -- and it is well run and the hotel really likes hosting ConFusion. Can't always say that about hotels. (grin)
So come on over if you've got a chance. It'll be fun.
