As the pictures do indicate, I was finally able to make it to the Monroeville Mall thanks to Fuji giving me and Cat a ride. Still a creepy dated looking place, some parts still look like from movie but overall too many renovations left it not quite the same. There was a nifty small zombie museum, mostly posters and playing a Dawn of the Dead documentary.
At the end of the con there was an issue with JetBlue cancelling... pretty much all the flights. Thankfully Happy Pup was able to get me a ride back to NY. On the way back we stopped at Centralia, and just as strange we found a couple who had very strong views and a lot of background information on it all who gave us a bit of a tour. Further on our trip back we somehow found a Sonic and grabbed some dinner :)
