Last year at this time I was preparing to go to Bouchercon in Madison, Wisconsin. The event was memorable, especially because of all the neat people I met. I took this picture at the big Madison Farmer's Market; what a far cry it is from what people might see this year at the Alaska Bouchercon.
It would be nice to go, but one can't attend them all, can one? :)
And it is nice to be able to lounge at home rather than pack a bag with clothes, books, and conference necessities.
But if you're going, let us know what it's like--and take pictures!
