Almost everybody listened to Jim's presentation of QDT.

Here's my journey report:
I missed the 2001 North American show on June 2nd 2001 in Montreal. Next goal was to be at this years US show. As I had collected enough bonus miles to take a free business class flight to Washington D.C. and back I finally decided to join this show. It was supposed to by my second US QL show after Oak Ridge, Tennessee in 1995. I arrived in the US on Thursday May 30th and stayed until June 6th. The days before the show I enjoyed D.C., the days after the show I did a trip through six states where I first went direction north passing Harrisburg, Williamsport up to Niagara Falls. I visited the Falls on both American and Canadian side. Then I visited Toronto for a (rainy) day. On the way back to Washington D.C. I did a short driveby to Philadelphia. The last day I stayed again in the capitol of the United States. The QL show and the "get together" around it were great! I had great fun meet many old friends which some of them I haven't seen for years! At the show I've got the QPC2 V3.03 update. Highlights of the show were QDT, GOLDFIRE, QL2002 DVD and GeeGraphics. I hope to be able to be at the US2003 event too.
