Preparing for Youmacon 2010

To cut costs I’m staying at a Red Roof Inn about 30 minutes outside of Detroit. I have to thank McDonalds for their free wifi. I got lost and without it I probably would still be driving around right now trying to find the hotel.

What a great hotel though. I’ll take some photos later and post them. It was insanely cheap as well after I used a coupon code I found online. Basically, what I’m paying for 3 nights is less than what I’d be paying for one night in downtown Detroit.

Ok, enough rambling, I have to get going!
