Albacon 2008 Report and Photos!


Friday, October 10th We managed to make the 3pm ferry in Port Jeff New York. This route, while a little expensive means we avoided the New York bridges on a three day weekend (Bridges where we would sit for hours other years) and drive straight up through Connecticutt to route 90.

On the Massachusetts side we drove through a few small New England towns along route 8 and later route 44.

We arrived in Albany around 8:30pm after stopping at the worlds filthiest McDonalds outside of Albany on route 9 south. I was too late to get badges for the next day but early enough to unpack and plan for Saturday. I was also able to use the Hotel WiFi system to record and upload the weekends live Destinies show which you can check out right here!

Here are a bunch of pictures I took on the ferry from Port Jefferson New York and later, on approach, Bridgeport Connecticut.

Checking into the hotel and unpacking was a breeze. We got settled in, were a little upset at missing the Ice Cream social but were just happy we made it to Albany before midnight making Saturday a much more enjoyable day after a good nights sleep.
