Philcon Day 2 and Taxicaching

Went to the "How do the Events of 9/11 Affect Our Perceptions of the Future?" and the "Physics of Time Travel" panels in the morning.

Then since I had two hours, I ducked out for some city caches. Found four virtuals. Raining a bit but not too bad. I walked to the first two locations. Then I took taxis to the other two locations and then back to the hotel. Taxicaching! Now, that's the life. Perhaps I should try that in New York City or DC. That will certainly be faster than driving and trying to find parking.

Back at the con, I went to the dinosaur panel and the origami workshop.

Very late for lunch (but then again, isn't 4pm my usual lunch time? :) ) so I went to the Reading Terminal Market.

Stopped by the Titanic panel for a bit and then went to see the Art Show just before it closed. Went up to the Con Suite for some snacks and drinks, and there I saw jbadger, Joe Strike, jess_k, jouva and kaishen. Talked about geocaching with Jbadger for a bit and then it was time to go to the Masquerade. Bumped into shy_matsi just before the masquerade and then...

Some masquerade photos.

After that, it was time for some party hopping. Coincidentally enough, I met freeside, some of whose caches I found in the afternoon, outside the Penguicon room party. Also played a round of Showbiz Shuffle at the launch party for that game.
