Wed & Thur, 6 & 7 August 2014
The flight on Wednesday to Las Vegas was uneventful. Though there were long lines at SeaTac, both for check in and security. They moved quickly and we had time for breakfast before boarding.
On Thursday, I got up about 0530 on registration Thursday and went to stand in line for Don at about 0610. DefCon does no pre-reg so everyone has to stand in line for a badge. The earlier ones get the collectable, electronic badge. Others get paper. Don came down about 0745 and took over. He finally had his badge by about 0910.
By 1000, the registration line was out the building and moving through the pool area, 4 wide, hundreds and hundreds of feet long. In the end, I think 25,000 people
After he got his badge, we went to breakfast. I did a quick sketch while we waited for our food. We were at the Hash House A-Go-Go in the Rio.
