Going back to Cali

Had I known that American Airlines charges nearly as much to transfer air miles as a paid ticket costs, I never would have asked, but thank you for all the kind offers.

I do have enough to get me to my Anaheim book launch and I have made flight reservations. In order to avoid an overnight stay in DFW, I'll be flying into and out of different airports. It's also more convenient given my itinerary, which follows:

Wednesday, Aug. 22: Arrive at John Wayne Airport a bit after noon. Coincidentally, a friend is moving from Brazil to Anaheim this month. I'll be staying with him initially.

Thursday and Friday and possibly part of Saturday: Hang out at a table at the IPMS convention, selling books and chatting with Israeli researchers with similar interests. We've invited Lou Lenart to appear, and it looks like he'll be with us part of the time, too.

The convention is being held at the Anaheim Marriott, about two blocks from Disneyland. If you're close enough, please do visit (and buy a book maybe?) The convention has some field trips in the works: Thursday and Saturday to the Chino aviation museums and Saturday to the American Society of Military History Armor Museum in El Monte. Friday might be the best day to come visit me. Scott, are you willing to drive across the city?

I plan to take in an Angels game one evening, but my other evenings should be more or less free.

Sometime Saturday, I'll decamp from Anaheim and move north to Whittier to stay with some old family friends. I'll fly out from the Ontario airport Monday morning, with several dozen books to sell to all those who can't make it to Anaheim.
