The Gettysburg battlefield looks absolutely fantastic! I would like to know who owns it? It needs to come to Gettysburg for display or a game for paying tourists! Introduces interested people in ACW wargaming and they get to see an exceptional Battlefield display! If anyone knows who own it, have them get in touch with me. I have a place to set it up.

Made it to Historicon very late on Wednesday night. The flight was very bumpy, but we made it.

Thursday I spent enjoying the convention as much as possible before The Greater Pacific War Project starts. I made an all-too-brief sweep of the dealer area. It has been expanded with an annex. I am not sure if this is a good idea, as they haven't made enough effort to point out the additional space. I'll investigate it later.


The convention is totally packed. It's Thursday night at 11:35 PM, and the bar is wall-to-wall people. The whole convention feels so very much alive. I would not doubt it if this was the biggest turnout ever. I see lots of familiar faces and many new ones.

Flea market

I took advantage of the fabulous weather and pool - as well as the poolside bar, to get lunch. The humidity is manageable and the temperature is not bad; especially considering it was 100 degrees here last week.
