It was a long slow month waiting for AWA after Dragon*Con. But, the time had finally come... AWA was here! My photographer (aka “Press Pool”) and I packed up the car and started down highway 75 (The Con Highway) again to Atlanta Georgia. Upon arrival at the convention center we surprisingly were able to get checked into our hotel, the Renaissance Waverly Hotel and pick up our passes without any hitches or delays. We were wandering around the Cobb Galleria in less than an hour. The AWA registration staff was very professional, friendly and fast!

Well, we are off to a new con season! We started off our season this past weekend with Con Nooga in Chattanooga Tennessee. I would like to thank Todd and the Con Nooga staff for having us down. For Con Nooga, Press Pool myself and the whole family attended sense it was so close to home. We arrived at the Chattanooga Choo Choo Convention Center around 1pm in the afternoon. Since we were able to get an early check-in we made use of it. Upon arrival to the lobby of the Choo Choo which was an old converted passenger station, we were greeted at the front doors by the friendly and courteous hotel staff. This hotel is great for train enthusiasts starting at the main lobby to all of the converted passenger rail cars out back. Some you could rent to sleep in others were old dining cars being used as eateries. Truly a nostalgic train buff location.
