Yes, we (Shorter Half, Michael W. and I) drove 2+ hours (in the rain, uphill, against the wind) just to get to the DC Blogmeet last Friday. And then did it all again to get home. But it was well worth it. Besides being able to present my blogfather, JayG, with a small token of appreciation , I got to meet Alan Gura. I did my best not to squee in his presence, but I'm not sure I was successful. I got to meet lots of otherbloggers, too, including my "co-start" T-Bolt, from B&B Guns last year.
For some reason, JayG looked a little nervous when he was handed this.
