Progress report

Extra life United – This was a triumph! I’m making a note here: Huge Success. It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction. #ftk #extralifeunited

I met a huge hive of wonderfully swell folks, and hope to see them again as soon as time allows. I’d really like to bring Allison with me next time. There were a few married couples there that showed it could be done handily.


It really pleases me that the folks were a nice cross section of the gaming community. Young adults, elders, all genders and races represented and behaving well together. The stereotypical 13 year old spewing epithets and slurs was nowhere to be found. No worries or talk about gamergate or the like… just people working together to help sick kids and to have a great time. 

Arrived home safe and sound to my much missed Mrs. and the lads. There is something delightful about returning home and seeing Allison by the stained glass crab where we first met, years ago.

Tomorrow is the first day of my new contract with DOT / FHWA. The folks there seem quite pleased to have me signing on with them for a bit and I love the location. More or less to follow as I work there.
