July 2001 – Defcon 9: This year we turned our Defcon trip into a semi-family vacation. We packed up a minivan and brought Emily with us, driving about 1,300 miles to Nevada. We left Payton at home though and he did okay. We put some food in a dish and left the Cartoon Network on TV for him. I should have some more pictures up here when I get a little more time.

PLA Table Colleen being thrilled to sit at the PLA table.
Halibut Stickers The guys who sell Halibut t-shirts had a table next to us. They decided to be lazy and not show up on Sunday but leave their stickers on the table. So we put the stickers into 2 different stacks, one labeled “FREE” and one labled “$1.00” to see which stack disappeared quicker. Most people looked at it and just didn’t get the joke. We later stuck a sign on it stating, “Out to lunch. Please leave money on table and take correct change.” There ended up being $5.00 on the table by the end of the day. People are dumb.
PLA Stickers This lady thought it’d be a good idea to wear PLA stickers on her boobs so I had to walk up and ask, “Say there, would you mind if I took a picture of your breasts please?” and she was more than happy to pose for me.
