Check-in for my Southwest Airlines flight (direct; the return requires a change at Las Vegas) was simple enough, but the University of Reno-Nevada mens baseball team was at Terrorization ahead of me, which gummed up the works. It took about 45 minutes to get through. Glad I got there early.
The flight itself was mostly full but otherwise uneventful, which is good. As I was getting ready to get off the flight at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, I got out my tote bag, which is a World Fantasy Convention 2009 San Jose bag, and the woman sitting next to me looked at it and said, "How was Worldcon?"
"You know about Worldcon?" I said (ignoring for the moment that this was actually a WFC tote).
Turned out she and the man with her (boyfriend/husband, I never found out) did, although they've never attended one. They go to Anime Expo regularly. I told them about Worldcon being in San Jose next year. Turns out they live in Reno, but did not live there in 2011 when the Worldcon was there. I referred them to the web site and I hope we'll see them at Worldcon next year.
Mike Willmoth has been collecting people from the airport today, and I was one of the last pickups. After dropping my bags in the hotel room (I'm sharing a room with David Clark), a group of us gathered in the hotel lobby and walked to one of the many restaurants located near the Hilton Garden Inn.
I'm glad I checked the weather and thus knew that I could leave my jacket and sweater in the car at Reno Airport. It's quite warm here, even at night.
Tomorrow is our one big day of Worldcon planning meetings, because many of us (including me) have to leave relatively early for our flights home.
