Its been a bit of a struggle, but I will be there again this year as well...Looking forward to meeting more people this year. Last year was my first year, and I was alittle overwhelmed..
Since everyone in my immediate family will be working on Thanksgiving through the weekend, (Nursing and Retail) I will be leaving on Turkey day and coming back on the 6th. A few extra days to...uh..attend bible study..
What class are you teaching, Paul? I think I looked at it, but it seems like it didn't fit my schedule... might have to check it out online after the conference.
Looks like my boss has had a change of heart and given me the okay to attend this year.
(Actually I think he got a free pass and found out he couldn't fit it in his schedule.)
A few extra days to...uh..attend bible study..Take a couple of days to visit the Grand Canyon or Death Valley NP.
I was thinking of going to one of those actually..wanted to see the Dam as well.
Yes, I meant to mention that. The Hoover Dam and the new bridge are fairly close to Las Vegas (I think about 30 miles). The Grand Canyon or Death Valley (opposite direction) are a full days drive away. If you go to the Grand Canyon - the Hoover Dam is on the way there. Plan to spend at least 3 hrs there (arrive early, very very early (or late)). The parking is free on the Arizona side, then walk back across. The parking for the new bridge is about half mile before the dam.
Warning: the rim of the Grand Canyon is actually at a fairly high elevation and it can be cold in Dec., but they have a great welcome. http://home.pct.edu/~jmather/IMAGES/JM%20RM%20at%2
Thats fantastic news! Really happy to hear that. Excited to see so many of you guys looking forward to attending!
Would be awfully nice to go to one of these, but I don't think I have the chance to. Working for a small company, its not easy to convince the boss to put up funds for these types of things. To those that are going, have fun and share your experience!
