    I loved it! I'm very happy I did it. There was a lot of information, especially the second night. I can't decide if it would be better to have a third night since the CSS portion is intense.

    Okay, I'm completely lost as to where I'm actually meant to be right now. The only building I was able to find is locked.

      Yay, glad you found this too! :-)
      You are right about the streets getting blocked off, thanks for bringing that up. Sounds like they'll begin blocking streets at 6pm, so everyone please plan accordingly. :-) Here's where I found some info: http://www.michronicl...­
