I never made it to a formal key signing, all I did was look up biglumber:
and found someone who would be in my area. We met, I showed him my ID, we
talked a bit, and he signed my key.
He lives in Switzerland and I live in Athens,Ga, USA. If I wantyed to drive 80
miles to Atlanta, I could probably find a number of people to sign my key,
but this way I got to meet someone from another country!
