I left the worldcon behind just after my last panel (which was very enjoyable indeed, thank you very much). I’d been in Reno since the evening of the 12th, but Valerie, Adam, and Lesley came in on the following Wednesday (the 17th).

Anyway… we left the convention center a little after 3pm, hit a Wendy’s to fuel up on the way out of town (this may sound pedestrian, but after so many days of rich hotel food it was a welcome reprieve) and then headed off to Tahoe and the Resort at Squaw Creek. We checked in to our room, and then proceeded down to the pool area for soaking and relaxing. This was followed by drinks and dinner at the resort’s Six Peaks Grille where Valerie and I started our meal with a fabulous, perfectly seared, enormous foie gras with a maple pancake, sprinkled with huckleberries, finely minced walnuts, and topped with butterscotch caviar (courtesy of molecular gastronomy).

This morning I managed to sleep until 8am (note to folks following my tweets, this is a correction from an earlier tweet) and while my roomies slept I snuck down to the pool area and had it all to myself. I soaked in the jacuzzi, I floated in the pool, I soaked some more in the jacuzzi, I lay out in the morning sun and just relaxed.

Now everyone is awake and attired for the outside world. We’re heading off to breakfast. Post-con recovery continues. Catch you later!
