As I mentioned the other night, I was in Maine for the weekend, visiting my friend Sam, who I work with at camp. I had a really good time - Sam's a really good friend of mine, and it was good to see him for the first time in a while. I got to check out his campus, probably a little larger than Norwich, and with a larger town around it with some good things to have. Like a book store and movie theater.
I also got to see how they ran their games club, from which I'll probably take some pointers to our own club here at Norwich. There's some big size differences, but I got some things that I can begin to impliment. I guess we'll see how that goes in the coming week. Plus, Sam picked up the newest Age of Empires game, which is amazing. I just got the demo on my computer and I'm thinking that I'll have to find my own copy, because it works on my computer. Woohoo!
The drive over wasn't bad at all. It was a bit long, four hours each way, but it was a fairly easy ride. I basically stayed on the same route, and the only complicated part was driving through a couple of cities/large towns, navigating through some of the side streets. Mapquest was handy for that part, but downright useless for everything else. Their directions were annoying. I just used the printout map that came with it to get to Farmington.
Picked up a couple of comics while I was at it - got the first and third issues of the new Spiderman run: Evolve or Die. Still need to pick up #2. It's a long, 12 issue crossover with three Spiderman comics out there. Interested to see how it turns out. I also picked up the latest issue of B.P.R.D., following the Frog Wars storyline, that's turning out interestingly. And I picked up the second issue of Rogue Squadron, which is becoming a slightly disapointing story arc...
Now, sleep, hopefully to finish the World Before so I can get moving on 1776 and St. Alban's Fire.
