I'm off to Penguicon for the weekend. I'm driving this time, since that will save me a fair amount of money, and I'll have my car in the Detroit area. It's about a 12-hour drive according to the mapping sites and software I've tried.
I haven't been able to get to sleep much at all tonight, so I finally decided to go ahead and get on the road. I'll stop for gas and food in either Waterloo or Cedar Rapids, depending on how I get along, and then we'll see. This way, I'll go through Chicago before the afternoon rush. If I get tired, I'll find a rest area and take a nap. It's not like I've got to be there before about 10 PM, and that only if Cathy Raymond needs a ride from the airport.
