Three Weeks In Longmont
« on: January 29, 2016, 06:42:50 AM »
I love my company, but I'd love them even more if they'd start sending me to Colorado in the summertime instead of the winter. As it stands now, I'll be in Longmont from February 20 through March 13.

The good news is I'll be in Aurora again at the end of July. If the house sells soon, maybe I'll finally get to move out west.

Business travel suks. Don't let anyone try to convince you otherwise

Anyone who enjoys business travel is either: Lying to you. Hasn't been traveling very much. Has a job I want. 

Enjoy it for what it is.  Borrow some skis.  Hope your place sells in the Spring.  Aurora sounds nice.

Beers, when? Also in Longmont, and can likely point you to good snowshoe, X-country, sightseeing, burritos, tacos, burgers, BBQ and beers. Many many beers.

Git a few beers in him, put him in the jeep and take him over blackbear and video it. 

Seems like a good time.

LOL - that'd be the ticket!

Much closer, and was on my mind... I'm wondering if Red Cone'd be open (snow) by then!

I've always liked traveling... especially when it's warm and I take the bike.

Dinner with CO folks?

That will be my plan...

Company paid room. The per diem is for food and personal items. I eat cheap and pocket the savings.

As quickly as I was told I was going to Longmont I have now been told that training is on hold. :-(
