We are following the 7 "P"s for covering this event. Prior Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.
The event or McGuffin (the event a film revolves around in a Hitchcock film) is the NALSA Worlds.
Here are a couple of articles that have come out already in Scuttlebutt.

The players that have signed UP for the road trip from Seattle to Austin NV are Count Enrico Ferrari (CF), The Rear Admiral (RA), and our art director (AD) whose name is not included until he sells the idea to his wife.
Discussion of leisure name for the AD:
The Mission Statement:
Road trips have a sense of adventure, a sense of journey as opposed to arriving. Doing the exploration of the universe as much as possible given the resources of a car and a road.
We all have those we hold in reverence and awe. As a newbie freelance writer the Count has his ideal to try and live up to. The journalistic hero we love to love: (While we are not going to LV, we will be close and on a journalistic mission.) For the Count to find a level of excellence that Hunter S. Thompson he needs to get out there and do it!

How we will travel:
We will take the Count's ride as it has the best AC. Three boys of AARP age will fit with gear comfortably in this. We have reservations in Austin for three night in a very odd motel made of manufactured housing units. Photos to follow.
