It always takes a while to get started, but I resolved to get serious about this one a month after the Fest ended, and I'm now on a schedule where I'll write a chapter or two once or twice a week. At this rate the report should be done by mid-to-late September if I keep going at it.
As of now, after writing an outline, I've completed the report's Intro, Planning, Getting to the Fest, Sunday, and Monday chapters. Consecutively I have us through both Silver Service trips, the various Florida layovers including all of Jacksonville, and up through the Cary layover. I worked a little on the Richmond layover, and did the Getting Home and Conclusion chapters at the end. I would say the report is about 36% finished at this point. Still to be done are the Piedmont, the time in Charlotte, the Carolinian Act 1, the trip from Richmond to Norfolk, the time in Norfolk, the Thruway bus, the trip from Newport News to the Washington area, the VRE trip to Fredericksburg, the platform dance while there, and then the Carolinian Act 2 where the Fest ended.
I have already started to bug some of you for missed details, but printing out my back Twitter from that week and rereading our comments in this Forum regarding our daily progress reports during the event has already proven to be helpful as well.
