Narcolepsy: Not Alone -- Time to put Kansas on the map. #narcolepsynotalone

This has been kind of a strange weekend.... but it all started on Thursday, July 25th, when I got a Facebook invite from Julie Flygare to some "Narcolepsy: Not Alone" Event....

Reading the details about it...it seemed complicated, since I'm still alone....but I soon decided that I was going to do it and starting putting the plan into motion. And, I knew just the gadget to help make this possible....on July 28th, I remembered to go online to look for it. Fortunately, the first place I thought of had it...though sadly its no longer available: http://photojojo.com/store/awesomeness/collapsable-camera-extender/ (unless it comes back...)

Free shipping gave a range 10-15 days (Aug 7-12?), though in reality it didn't take that long...arriving on July 31st....just under 1.5 days in shipped to delivered.

I then worked on the other details of my plan. I was going to start with the provided sign with a small tweak....though the sign is centered, so I needed to move the text up a bit to make the tweak fit. I wanted to drop a safezone symbol onto it. Though finding a safezone graphic was harder than I thought, but eventually I found something. I used gimp to lay the images together and printed it out.

It looked good, though the "Narcolepsy: Not Alone" was kind of light. I figured I would just need to reprint it later using high quality mode on my inkjet printer. The next step was to figure out when I would actually take this picture.
