Star Wars Recap

The Star Wars convention was awesome. For my son Tate it was a superbowl of activities. We traveled to Los Angeles via the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner. Once we arrived in LA we tool the Metro Red Line Subway, which was his first subway trip and in his opinion the best part of the whole day. At 7th street we switched to the Blue Line which deposited us at the LA Convention center. There we found the oddest collection of freaks and nerds ever to be brought together in my lifetime. I think if you could have rounded up all the Storm Troopers alone you may have had a regiment of several thousand ready to attack the rebels.

The convention was broken up into a commercial area where you could buy just about anything you wanted, a fan hall with things like Jedi training classes and then a variety of meeting rooms and other stuff. We really just spent out time in the commercial and fan hall as well as getting pictures with just about every character you can imagine. Here Tate is with his Jedi outfit and a Storm Trooper helmet which might be a good birthday present in the next couple of months…
