Another reason to hate Pennsylvania Josh, you should have just gone to the neighborhood WaWa's convenient store instead and got some Tasty Kakes goodies (love their pies, "kandy cakes" and krimpets). I always stock up everytime I make a trip to PA! Oh, and WEEN rules!

Hell yeah, PA booze laws

Hell yeah, PA booze laws sound awesome and completely modern! And I bet Dave is proud of his comedic fecal timing.

Spinal meningitis got me down.

The most important part of these recaps is enumerating how badly Pennsylvania sucks. I used to live there, in Reading for a couple of years and Pottsville (home of the Yuengling brewery) for one interminably long year.

Lancaster is the worst because of the overwhelming knee-jerk Christian population there. I remember during the early 90s there were people trying to get Halloween celebrations shut down, and at least one of those comic stores was being picketed on a regular basis for selling RPGs.

PA is a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

I'm right down the road in

I'm right down the road in Pittsburgh but I had company all weekend and couldn't go, so thanks for the awesome coverage. I could cry for having missed it, but the insight regarding the conditions some of these toys takes some of the sting out of it. On the plus side I went to the local train show and scored a C-8 twelve back Jawa for $50, so I'm thinking that these auction results do not indicate anything other than the fact that people can't be buying stupid stuff at this time, and current pricing reflects that.

Now, about Pennsylvania....

Yuengling, Ween, the first real milestone in our hobby's recognition... all good reasons to hate on PA. You did make one mistake, however, by not snagging a fresh Shufly Pie.

pinto grande roboto

I stopped at that very same comic store before I left PA. If my timing was better I might have run into you again.

Didn't get any comics, but I did pick up a miniature Giant Robo.

I also stopped by Metropolis, the owner of which I met previously at the after auction party. He actually had some nice things, but I was pretty dry after the auction.
