"hi :) i was able to take a vacation during august of 2001. it just so happened that quakecon was going on during august 9 - 12 and that gave me the perfect opportunity to meet some people i've only known online and others i get to see yearly, if that often. the event itself is pretty much a big party and not really my thing, so i stayed with my friends riana and rich and hung out with them. we also stole my friend yoss away from quakecon for a day to hang out with us. here is my collection of pictures that i took. i hope to put some more up once riana and yoss send me the pictures they took."
