*One of the poor unfortunates
August 03, 2006
Well we got home last night. had to do some shopping before we headed on our 3 hr drive home.
Train was uneventful. think I caught up on my sleep inbetween falling out of the seat. found a good way to sleep as long as the leg rest doesnt fall down. so don't touch the little knob. Ken and Wolfgang willl understand.
I have pictures but everyone elses look so good. Don't think mine will be necessary.
Love seeing the pictures.
I am now trying to get caught up and getting stuff ready to send to JD and L'lee.
not sure where the dirty clothes or the bills came from
Hope to see more of you all next year. It was a great time. Even my husband was not to grumpy, tho the picture Rand took doesn't say that, and he enjoyed his nap up in the room where the videos were.

More Photos Posted
Just posted some more photos to the Blog. My notes, what few there are, are still in route, via the USPS. Since my little brain cannot remember everyones name from Presentation Night, I have not indicated them... If you can assist me, please PM me at the forum so that I can update the photos. Also, the band who played had a web site where we could download the song they played. (Very good, I might add) If you can assist with the bands name and web site address, I'll update the photos with that info, too!

Nonie and I made it safely home. No airport or flight delays. Arrived home @ 12:30 PM. Beth met us at the airport (thanks Beth).
We got up and packed this morning, then stopped by Cyan with some donuts for the crew. Then we drove around some of the local mountains, Green Bluff and Mt. Spokane. Then it was off to the airport. All of our luggage made it fine, as did all of our signed items.
This was a really tremendous experience and I am sad that it is over. I am also sad that not everyone that wanted to make it to MYSTerium was able to make it. I hope that the posting here and other places has helped ease your pain.
I will go through my pictures tomorrow and post what I think might be interesting.

My mind is still in shock over this past weekend... need to collect my thoughts, but I'm home safely. Pretty uneventful train ride too. But not everything can be as exciting as Mysterium .
Back At Work
*SIGH* I'm back at work and can't stop thinking about the weekend. Just tried to call Golden Wedge at the hotel but he must have slipped out a little early. He mentioned how quiet and lonely the hotel seemed with most of us cleared out. It reminded me, yesterday, of what it felt like to go from Prologue, back to the single player version of Uru. Very lonely, with only a little cone to keep me company!
Speaking of cones, I just ordered the key chain cones for Cyan, that I promised Rand I'd send! I let RAWA know that they were coming, too, just in case! I'm glad that they were a big hit with the Mysterium crowd. Who would have guessed 100 would not have been enough!!Continue reading "Back At Work"

Getting ready to head back home this morning. We tried a day trip to Montana yesterday. Not even enough time to really get over there, but we had fun. Found an interesting rock formation and have posted a picture for your viewing pleasure.
The hotel is very empty, and their are no big groups yacking it up in the lobby. This has been a very exciting and interesting adventure. I am glad that MYSTerium happened to land at Spokane at this particular juncture. This are going to get really exciting in the very near future.
It was great to see all of you that were able to make it. I think we are a fine bunch and I am glad to be part of this group of people.
We leave about 11:30 to head to the airport and arrive in Orlando at 11:30 tonight, a whole "day" of flying, oh boy.
I will post again when we make it safely home.

Arrived Home Safely
Devon and I made it back home in one piece at about 7pm this evening. It's good to be home, but we already miss all our friends, old and new, that we were with at Mysterium. Adnil & Memiki picked us and Ayli up from the hotel at 4:30am this morning (many, many thanks to them for all they did for us and others this weekend!) and delivered us safely to the airport. Big hugs!!!! Ayli was on a different flight from us, so we parted once we got inside the airport, however, we did share our first of two connecting flights with Ran and AnnD, who were 4 rows behind us on the plane. We also spotted Scraper and a few other people at the airport -- I guess all of us had early flights!
I also want to throw in a big thanks to Roland who, besides picking us up from the airport on Thursday, was the wheel man of our prize winning team in the Photo Scavenger Hunt! Team Surface Quest rocks!
As I sit here unpacking and trying to sort through various things we brought home with us from Mysterium, besides going over lots of memories also brought home, I am getting a little bit sad, but not too sad, since I know we'll "see" most of them in cavern, and if all goes well, will see many again next year!
Devon still has to sort through the zillions of photos he took at Mysterium and decide which ones to post, but stay tuned, over the next few days he'll get them up here!
Meanwhile, it's been a long day (a long weekend with very little sleep, for that matter) so I think I'll call it a night! As I think of more things that happened at Mysterium, I'll post them over the next few days.
Goodnight and Shorah!
