This is the first year we haven’t attended DragonCon in any way for a long time. The first one I went to was 1994 and pretty much went every year since 1998. That generally puts the number of times I’ve been in the 20-25 range. Some years were great, some sucked and there was lot of everything in between.
I don’t regret skipping it. Neither one of us had any energy or desire to deal with the crowds and its money we didn’t need to spend. For now, it feels to me more of the past than the future. Maybe this will change, but I’m happy leave that question be until 2019.
No telling where we will be a year from now.
