Everything amazing that happened to me at the con is too personal and new for me to post about here right now, so I'll just post about how I arranged to get some solo non-social time, some exercise, and got to enjoy a beautiful October day by leaving the con during daylight hours.

I had brought all my heavy stuff home already through the kindness of a friend, but I had left my bicycle at the hotel. I said my goodbyes, and in order to catch a bus (they have bike-racks on them here) to escape from suburban hell and get back into the city, I had to figure out how to ride my bike north across I-494 to where the actual useful bus stops are. France Ave is still a no-go crossing for me on a bicycle, so I headed east to the York-Xerxes crossing. The pocket internet computer makes this sort of navigation so much easier than it used to be.

Managed to cross the Interstate intact and found the bus stop I wanted. Rode north through scary Edina and overshot my stop at 50th and Xerxes. Rode down a hill through amazing fall color (just keep repeating "through amazing fall color" during the rest of this post, I'm not going to do it myself) and cycled round the southern part of Lake Harriet, on the road with the cars, because I would have been salmoning on the bike trail. Up and down the bluffs along south Harriet. Then off down Minnehaha Creek, which was flooded enough to be impressive, but not flooded enough to interrupt my trail.

Lake Hiawatha was particularly spectacular, but I have sentimental connections to that neighborhood.

I wound up crossing Hiawatha Ave at 46th St, and headed north for home from there once I got to Minnehaha Ave.
