From what I heard you got out just in the nick of time! Other sites are talking of monsterous lines and waits on Saturday evening at SFNE. We were there Sunday with very manageable lines but I guess Saturday was especially tough after the heavy rain on Friday.

Easier for you to spot me, most likely.

That is why it sucks not knowing what people look like on here.It would have been cool knowing you would be there and meeting you.Do you have any pics?

We all could put photos in our profiles, I suppose (those of us that created profiles, that is).

But I prefer to keep my "highway identity" in mine.

I took no photos.

Nobody seemed to notice that I wrote this:
