Reply to "What do you miss most not being able to actually go to York?"

Wow, what a question.  Where to begin?

OK, in no particular order:

  1. In the days ahead of the meet, the anticipation of entering the world's largest "candy" store.  It's like being a kid again.
  2. Hearing the national anthem prior to opening.  I am so grateful to God and blessed to be standing there.
  3. The sheer joy of the first few minutes of the meet as people rush to get into the halls.
  4. The hunt for "whatever" in October ("One ping only, Vasily!" )
  5. Finding some item you had given up on in some obscure corner of the meet.
  6. Seeing people you know and communicate with on-line.
  7. Dinner, drinks, and spirited conversation with friends.
  8. That bittersweet ride home with the great things you found and your new memories (the sweet) and the knowledge that you have to wait another 6 months to do it again (the bitter).
