Hanging out in Santa CruzOctober 14, 2007 2:36 am General
Sara and I got into San Jose yesterday evening, and started the relatively short trip down to Santa Cruz. The short trip turned into a longer one with a downed power line, causing a tail up of miles. After sitting for nearly an hour, we were passed through once the fire brigade, police and utility services did their thing. We were pretty hungry, needing to pee, and coordinating the rest of the people heading down that night.
Made the hotel bar in time to get some vouchers, small amount of food, and start the fun task of meeting everyone. It’s so good to see so many people here, and match faces to names for the first time. It’s exactly like that experience I had attending my first GUADEC many years ago. I think it’ll be an awesome couple of days, and I’m hoping much productive stuff comes from it. Rock on!
