Philadelphia, Part Four

Timeline: March 18-27 We took our time getting out the next day, performing personal errands and just generally being lazy.  Around late morning we walked over to the Reading Terminal Market to get some lunch, knowing that we wouldn’t be eating dinner until close to 7pm that night.  Being a Wednesday, it was much less […]

Philadelphia, Part Three

Timeline: March 18-27 We would change things up on Tuesday as Jim was leaving for home and I’d be moving to an Airbnb rental on Spruce St near 18th, just around the corner from the Monk’s Café.  Having arranged for a late checkout, Jim and I pulled away from the hotel at 1pm and I […]

Philadelphia, Part Two

  Timeline: March 18-27 Monday, the first full day of the conference would be a busy one, stretching into the evening as we had plans to celebrate the upcoming wedding of James, a former UNCC colleague now happily and successfully integrated into life in South Alabama. Our first order of business in the morning was […]

Philadelphia, Part One

  Timeline: March 18-27 This trip would be another quick hitter, ten days in total, to include a few days at the ACUI Conference in Philadelphia (potentially the last I’ll attend), a day in Baltimore with Nephew Jed, and then two nights on Chincoteague Island where we’d hopefully get to see some wild horses. As […]

South East Spring Swing, New Orleans #1

  March 19-23 Rain had greeted us upon our arrival in New Orleans but departed by early Sunday morning leaving us with a clear, but cold start to the day. We had hoped to get a bike ride in before I left for the Marriott at the French Quarter and the start of the conference, […]

Outer Banks and More, Bodie Island Part One

June 3-7 After sending Carolyn off to Birmingham with a nice breakfast, chores and errands to accomplish Monday morning kept us from hitting the road for Blacksburg until early afternoon. It took us just about four hours to make the drive and we arrived on campus at Virginia Tech to pick up my registration packet […]

Outer Banks and More, Blacksburg

May 30 – June 14 Elements of this trip kept changing as we got closer to taking off, and we would continue to make plans on the fly as we went, much as we did in Europe last year. The impetus for it was a facilities management conference sponsored by ACUI and APPA at Virginia […]

ACUI San Antonio – A Little Taste of Texas, Part Three

April 4-17 Late in the week we’d connected with Dave again and arranged to meet at their place on Saturday to ride our bikes on the north section of the Salado Creek Greenway. We arrived late in the morning and after unloading the bikes from the car took off to ride the few blocks to […]

ACUI San Antonio – A Little Taste of Texas, Part Two

April 4-17 The weather cleared up briefly the next day giving us an opportunity to catch a bike ride, get the car washed and then later meet up with an old friend. It had been warm and muggy when we arrived the night before and this continued on into the next day, so after breakfast […]

ACUI San Antonio – A Little Taste of Texas

April 4-17 I’d been contemplating attending the annual ACUI Conference in San Antonio since last fall, and after some deliberation and talking with my former boss Jim, decided to give it a go, particularly since neither Joanna or I had spent any time in Texas. We both viewed it as an opportunity to introduce ourselves […]
