So, Shaun and Richard have been planning on going to this ASLE Conference in South Carolina for a while now and I just never entertained the notion of going myself. With packing up the house and Laura busy with Vacation Bible School, I was resigned to missing out on this one.
Then, at about 10:00 I mentioned to Laura that Bill McKibben was going to be speaking at, "that conference that Richard and Shaun are going to tomorrow morning." She says, "Right, so why aren’t you going?" What has followed is a series of hurried calls to the guys, some more browsing around on the ASLE web site, a quick load of laundry and now…I’ll be leaving for South Carolina in about six and a half hours. A surprising turn of events for sure!
