I tried, I really did, but having to work the MagicMeet event keep me really busy - Just ask Val. But here we go.
MissSMIG and I tried to leave home by 8 a.m. on Friday 7/18 - we were all packed (snacks included) when we got to the car and I noticed… I HAD A FLAT TIRED… Oh I was so mad, you see DH drove my car the day before, his car needed to be taken to the mechanic. I tried to change the tired, but couldn’t get the lug nuts off, then I decided to call AAA - they took about 35 minutes to get to my house, with tired changed, I was off… No not to Harrisburg, to get the tire fixed, so MissSMIG and I sat and sat and sat for another hour or so - Finally we were on the road at around 10:30 AM - so now I am behind schedule, we had plans to stop and pick up a few more snacks and some misc. items that we needed.
We were finally off, we stopped to get some drinks then onto Rt. 33 towards Rt. 22 - since it was almost 11 a.m. by then the traffic on both 33 and 22 were light, I was making good time, then we hit 78 - we were cruising along when we noticed a sign “Accident Ahead” - crap just what I need, another slow down, it was now around 11:30 and I told Colleen (MagicMeets staff) that I would meet her at about noon - we all know that that didn’t happen. So we finally got to the accident, I heard it was a MAJOR accident people were medie vaced out - but all MissSMIG and I could see was a Target semi in the woods, at first I thought it was a bill board, but NO IT WAS A SEMI… Knowing that TinkFan was not far behind me, I called to give her a heads up.
We were going to go right to the Radisson, but then I decided we would head over to the Residence Inn and check in, I have no idea what time we would be getting back from the Radisson. So we checked in, our room was ready but we didn’t stop to take our luggage in and off to MagicMeets we were.
It was about 1:30 pm, but the time we got to the Radisson, after a quick stop at McDonald’s for some food we headed in and started with setup.
Here is MissSMIG play with the Mice.
And what is the tower…
