Upcoming Events For Me

Upcoming EventDate(s)Comments
Visits to Six Flags Over Georgia Ongoing through 2020 I have a Diamond membership for all Six Flags parks, as well as free parking, a Season Flash Pass and an annual dining pass, so this is a good, relatively inexpensive way to have some fun, get out of the house and get some exercise, and get wet during the summer months!
If you're interested in coming along or meeting up, whether on your own pass or as a guest of mine (there are some freebie days and discounts available), email me or contact me on Facebook!
ChattaCon, in Chattanooga TN January 2020 An annual tradition for me now since c. 1990. Oriented toward traditional literary (written-word) SF and fantasy, it's a great SF convention of the old school, with an excellent consuite, art show, etc. After the madding crowds at DragonCon, it's nice to go to something a lot smaller, friendlier and more intimate.
70,000 Tons of Metal cruise aboard Royal Caribbean's Independence of the Seas Early January, 2020 I first went on this cruise in Jan. 2015....and it was awesome, so I went again in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019....and I'm going again in 2020!
60 bands, 4 stages, 5 days and 4 nights on one of the larger cruise ships afloat. It's expensive -- compared to a "regular" cruise, anyway -- but it's a lot of fun! About half the bands have been announced so far, with another 30 or so to come.
AnachroCon February 2020 I'm now a director at this convention (in charge of the fan and band tables), which is geared toward steampunk, alternate history, time travel, Victorian aesthetics, etc. It's smaller and more intimate than DragonCon, and that's fine by me!
Georgia Renaissance Festival, Fairburn GA (plus drum-circle and gathering after the end of each week's Faire) Weekends, mid-April through early June Once again this year I should be "working" at the drum booth (Spice Traders Music), primarily on Sundays after noon. It's located at the foot of the hill near the middle of the Faire -- right across the creek from my old, sadly departed employer, Starfire Swords. Generally, you can listen for the sound of our drums. :)
I'll also be participating in the traditional drum-circle, fire-spinning and gathering at La Fiesta restaurant in Union City on Sunday nights after Faire.


Recommended Sites, Merchants, Places, etc

The following places have earned my recommendation for the reasons shown:

UpdatedPast happenings, news, and updated pages
November 14, 2019 Photos and videos added on Facebook from trip to Atlantis Bahamas, whilst staying at the Comfort Suites hotel next door because it's better and cheaper, and guests there enjoy full access to the Atlantis resort:
Photos and video from Atlantis' aquascape.
Videos from Predators Lagoon and The Dig (aquarium), including a full walk-through of the latter (a $40 value! :) ).
"Outside" photos from Atlantis and the marina
Videos from the River Rapids. It is NOT a "lazy" river.
POV videos from the water-park's slides.
Videos from the snorkeling portion of my excursion with Stuart's Cove.
Videos from the snuba portion of my excursion. Note that the colors in the videos are a lot less vibrant than they were in person.
Overall it was a pretty awesome visit, but not much has changed at Atlantis in the last six years. I was glad I booked one extra day this year, as the weather on Saturday was rainy and also VERY windy.
