Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover: we guided you through our eight-day trip to Atlanta in general and Dragon Con in particular — August 25th through September 1, 2019. It all comes down to this, per our tradition for every MCC road trip maxiseries: one final collection of alternate scenes, extra details, and surplus attractions along the way that were squeezed out of the main narrative. Enjoy!
Eight days. 1200+ miles. Two states, not counting home or completely skipping Kentucky. One hotel. One battlefield. One amazing colossal geek convention. Two mountains. Two donut shops. Two Nobel Peace Prizes. Two Grammy Awards. Three Academy Awards for three Best Pictures. Scooters and Coca-Cola everywhere. Nine major Atlanta attractions. Multiple tributes to President Carter, Martin Luther King, human rights, the 1996 Summer Olympics, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the Muppets.
We’re the Goldens. This is who we are and what we do.
The End. Thanks for reading. Lord willing, we’ll see you on our next annual road trip.
