This meetup is coming up soon and I finally have all the information finalized. Here’s the itinerary:
Date: July 22nd
Location: King’s Dominion – Doswell, Virginia (near Richmond)
9:00am – 10:45am
Meet at Denny’s Restaurant which is right next to King’s Dominion.
I’ll either be having breakfast or else be outside in the parking lot. T-shirts will be sold outside. If you don’t want to pay for the amusement park ticket, here’s your chance to meet up for free.
11:00 – 11:30
Arrive at King’s Dominion, meet at the plaza area (near a flagpole?) in front of the gates. Here’s a picture from google maps:
If traffic is really bad, this time might get pushed back some.
WARNING: There is a $12 parking fee inside King’s Dominion. You might want to try to park somewhere else and carpool with people.
11:30am – 2:00
Enter King’s Dominion, go on rides. If you still need a ticket, here’s the info to get a discount on it if you buy one online:
Price: $39 for July 22nd if you click on this link and follow these instructions:
Then buy the “multi-day” ticket (not what you think) for $33.99. They’ll still add a BS $5 “processing” fee.
2:00 – 2:30
Meet at the Eiffel Tower structure in case more latercomers arrive or people get lost
5:00 – 5:30
Meet again at the Eiffel Tower structure.
5:30 – ?

I don’t really have much in the way of plans aside from going to the amusement park, this whole thing will be pretty informal. I figure I’ll just talk to people, you can ask questions, meet Craig Mengel and Fred Meixell in addition to myself. I can sign stuff if you want, if nobody has any ideas what to do I’ll just make up stuff to talk about. I’m really not sure what to expect at this meetup. My guess is it will be something like this:

HOW TO FIND ME
Arriving late? No problem! I’ll be wearing a bright lime green t-shirt like this:
Also I should say to the dismay of many of you, I no longer look like Gordon Freeman. Unlike earlier photos, nowadays I look more like a backup Musketeer or something, judge for yourself:
If I look like I’ve only had 4 hours of sleep in this picture, that’s because I have. And yes, the people with chainsaws behind me were doing their work the same time I was trying to record a lot of the dialogue for the last episode.
Anyway, if you arrive late, you’ll just have to hunt me down at the park, like a real-world “Where’s Waldo” book. I’ll try and remain pretty visible and plan to be at the park all day. If you’re colorblind, you should probably arrive on time.
Hope this works out!
