SMOFCon Postscript

We got our act together this morning and packed things out to the van in three trips rather than having to hassle with the bell captain to use a luggage cart. While doing so, we said our goodbyes to those other die-hards like us who weren't leaving until Monday.

I forgot to post these photos on Sunday.
San Jose Faces the Inquisition

San Jose Faces the Inquisition
Having been preoccupied with prep for the Probability & Statistics Seminar, I didn't take a lot of photos during the Fannish Inquisition, but I did snap these two of San José in 2018 Worldcon Bid Chair Andy Trembley facing the Fannish Inquisition.

We pulled out of the Marriott about 8:30 AM. Instead of getting straight onto the freeway, we drove out to the beach and up Vista Del Mar toward Marina Del Rey, eventually making our way onto I-405, which was already in progress. Being a carpool helped a little, and it took us only about an hour to get to I-5 and then CA-14, after which the traffic was not an issue. We were free of the clutches of the Los Angeles basin and back in the open country.
