kitanzi and I have made it home with all of Gafilk’s sound equipment and other assorted gear. museinred and decadentdave drove up in hawklady‘s truck, and are now heading back to the hotel, with hopes of heading out tomorrow to AL. Several people who couldn’t get away on Monday got out today.
The ATL roads are still very uneven, even with a day above freezing for stuff to start melting. The worst driving I saw was when we’d hit a clear patch of pavement and everyone would suddenly assume that it was okay to zoom up to highway speeds, only to have to slow back to a crawl at the next icy sections.
The GA400 ramp looked like a ski jump from down the highway. Going over it was a slow affair, since there were basically a couple of tread-width patches clear up the centre of it, and the rest was still covered.
I don’t think we got over 40mph the entire trip, and spent most of it between 15-25. But we’re home safe, and home is nice.
I’m still running a check-in thread for people to let us know they got home safely. Sign in if you haven’t.
Hope to see everyone next year. We’ll make an effort to have less weather. 🙂
