I was a regular at Historicons past, but have stopped going since they moved it to VA. At the point where I'm driving to/from in a car longer than a day at the con, I fly. And at a point where I fly, and with limited time, I'd rather be at GenCon in August.
Have fun, and enjoy the battlefield sightseeing.
It is. And it is not. When it is, and when it is not, is the question or the answer, or both or neither.
