This is a first for me.
I’m in Conway, AR right now, leaning against my rental car, waiting for a coworker to arrive. This is the first time I’ve had to do a “day trip” involving a flight; my flight out leaves at 3:15. I’m here to do a site survey of a new facility. Once my coworker arrives I’ll grab my camera out of the trunk and start taking photos. Fun fun…
One of the things that I actually enjoy most about my job is the travel. Granted, it’s always to business and/or small towns, but it gets me out of Houston for a while. It’s also always fun getting to see new places and people. The day trips are the only ones that truly annoy me, as I like being able to stay the night somewhere and not feel more than a tad rushed. :-)
Of course, granted, having a laptop and cell phone makes it a lot more bearable. :-) The one trip I took this year that had almost no data service, Casper, nearly drove me out of my damn mind from boredom at night… Heh.
Ah, well. This most likely won’t be my only Conway trip, as I’ll have to come back later to implement the voice/data services we’ll set up for them. For now, though, I’ll just continue to wait for Bob to return. The scenery might suck (think industrial building and area), but the weather’s nice and the area peaceful.
