Subject: The Oakland freeway and Mythcon

By this time you may have heard about a gas tanker explosion in the middle
of a major freeway interchange in Oakland on Sunday morning. And you may
be wondering how this will affect travel to and from Mythcon.
There is some hope that the freeway will be repaired before Mythcon.
But nobody's guaranteeing anything, so in case it isn't fixed by then:
The best road to Mythcon from the Oakland airport* does not go through this
interchange, though traffic may be heavier than normal especially on the
return to the airport.
The best road to Mythcon from San Francisco was along the overpass that
collapsed, but there's an easy alternative**, though again traffic may be
heavier than normal.
