    What is on your itinerary?

    I'm signed up for the Steven Avery Experience, even though I'm not sure I can stand being in the same room with Kratz.

    Planning to see the LISK presentation if possible, and the FBI Crime Scene Dive Team.

    I'm also interested in the Jury Experience and the meet & greet with Kelly Siegler.

    I think I may attend the Tricia Todd Murder presentation instead of Citizen Detectives...I followed that case closely.

    And F. Lee Bailey?! How cool is that?

    I had a difficult time figuring out what to do at certain points because there were often at least two things I wanted to be at. But, here's our itinerary:

    Friday:
    Steven Avery Experience
    The Long Island Serial Killer
    Cold Case Research 101
    Jim Clemente
    Aphrodite Jones
    Real Crime Profile Live
    Murder Mystery (Late Seating)

    Saturday:
    Websleuths Radio Live
    The Golden State Serial Killer
    Jon Ronson
    Maura Murray
    Up&Vanished
    Ken Kratz
    Blood Splatter
    Cold Justice
    Cocktail Hour

    Sunday:
    Wine & Crime (Bloody Mary Edition)
    Escape the Room (11:15 reservation)
    Tricia Todd Murder/Citizen Detectives (not sure but really interested in the Todd session!)
    Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.

    We have a pet having surgery today, so I'm going to end up driving in later and leaving earlier than I had originally planned, so I can be home when he needs his medicine. But I am tentatively planning:

    Friday:
    Cold Case Research 101 (this is the one I'm most excited about)
    All the "Day in a Life of..." sessions
    Protecting Yourself from CyberCrimes

    Saturday:
    Golden State Serial Killer
    Harold Schecter (I'm also an English prof, and I'm interested to know how the true crime author stuff goes over when it comes to tenure)
    Midwest Search & Rescue Dogs
    Kirk Nurmi: Trials in the Social Media Era

    I'm too shy to go to any of the book signings or interactive sessions, and I don't listen to any podcasts, so no live tapings or podcast sessions for me (besides, I would be sure to have a huge coughing fit and screw up the taping for everyone, because that's just how my life goes). Although I might make an exception and go to the VANISHED: Tara Calico session, because I'm from New Mexico and followed her (and Michael Henley's) case closely when they first happened.

    If things go well pet-wise (paws crossed!), then I may drive back in on Sunday for:
    How I Solved a Homicide
    Citizen Detectives 101

    Also hoping to get up the courage to go to the WS and Reddit meet-ups. (I'm just a lurker when it comes to life. Just look at my WS stats--I've been a member for like 13 years, and barely have 200 posts. I'm even more shy IRL.)

    I swear when the schedule first came out there was supposed to be a session on Crime Scene Clean-Up, and I was hugely excited about that one, but I think it got cancelled? (or maybe I just imagined it)

    MzOpinion8d and texasgirl2, it looks like we'll be at some of the same sessions. Give me a holler if you see me! I'll be the chubby middle-aged woman with long frizzy reddish hair. I look like Stevie Nicks, if Stevie Nicks was an awkward ginger hippie librarian dressed to go to a funeral in an outfit she bought at Sears--

    It's at 3pm on Saturday. I think. There's also an "Up and Vanished: The Tara Grinstead Case" session on the same day, and I keep getting my Taras confused when I look at the scheduler--

    Greetings All -

    It sounds like everyone attended a great many sessions and panels ... I wonder if you could be so kind as to "review" some of them? Which did you feel were the best? Which would you have skipped? Who was the most engaging speaker? etc.

    I've got tickets to CrimeCon '18 and wasn't able to attend the first one, so am interested in any opinions you might care to share.

    I thank you in advance.
