    CRAFTY it's about 6 hours from me - and so is the Kentucky show - :)

    IF I go to one, I'll try the Kentucky one before the Ohio one. Been to almost all Chicago shows but never to any of the Kentucky shows.

    Columbus is a great city..feels like a town!! But the weather here...well, be prepared for anything :lol: Especially rain :!: And if you have sinus problems..bring your meds :D If you think you might have sinus problems..bring your meds :lol: :lol:

    The convention center is very close to the arena district, many places to eat and drink..our minor league baseball team..The Columbus Clippers..is within comfortable walking distance if you need an evening of reasonably priced fun...off your feet!

    Crime here isn't too bad..common sense goes along way as it does anywhere. I would never go out after dark alone in any city. Aside from your typical bums, people are pretty friendly, and not too scarey!

    I hope you enjoy your visit here. (Geez, sounds like I'm in PR for the city :lol: )
