Unloading an over-stuffed car

The car stayed completely packed until I at last pulled up in front of the Delta tonight, then suddenly it was empty. That's what happens when 10-12 fans are waiting in the lobby to help you unload. A bellhop or two saw the mob and jumped in to help. I think there were only two bellcarts, but there might have been three. Plus various additional bits.

The border crossing was easy-peasy. I got the "Why do you have so much stuff in your car?" question rather than the traditional alcohol or firearms/weapons questions. A minute or two of conversation and I was on my way.

The cops were out en force on the Northway (87). Doing 72 wasn't a problem. Another fan going 80 or a bit faster got nailed.

I'm in the Delta. The first Reno party starts in 17.5 hours, in conference room 532. Whee!

The easy way to unload is to pull into the hotel drive at high speed, spin the car, and pull the trunk release at the right time to throw everything into the door.

Bonus points if you then slide into a parking space.

So, what is your answer to the border people? We had a similar problem and sort of just said "Well, we are going for 9 days". Of course there were 3 of us.
