Preparing for the 2018 Atlanta Pen Show Apr 23, 2018 POST I know the Atlanta Pen Show is over. I still thought sharing some of my preperations could be useful for people looking forward to other shows. I do not travel all the time, but I do it enough to keep some things ready. I can pack my clothes and dopp kit in 15 minutes. This can even be done the night before which is good because I hit the road early to clear local morning traffic.
