A ‘road-tripping’ version of TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee, where I gather at the campground with old friends, hoist a few, pick some tunes, stare at the night stars, and smell the juniper and sage of the Oregon high desert. Totally off the grid for almost 72 hours with absolutely “NO SERVICE!” Good stuff.
As for the ONE GOOD THING? Hitting the road, doing a little camping – it’s a VACATION, no matter how long.
