:lol:

My first AU, I was barely 21... :-/ That was a bit of an education.

I'd seen the outskirts of Reno, but, it didn't prepare me for being in the middle of Vegas. lol.

Last year was my first time there..I was in the airport once on a flight back from Vancouver, but thats it..I had a great time last year..people watching was the best..Certainly some characters out there..lol..I won a few bucks too, so that was nice..Im glad they shortened the classes in the afternoon this year..I felt like I was always running from one thing to the next last year..

Speaking of runnig, the one in Orlando in 2005 was the worst. It was in two different hotels. So, I ended up skipping half the classes I'd scheduled because I spent the first day just running back and forth between the two hotels. Shoot me. (half cad management and programming and half facility management, which were in different areas)

In Vegas, the people watching is entertaining... and the later it gets, the more entertaining it is.

Indeed. I had to give up my dress shoes halfway through the week, due to foot swelling, and switched to Tevas (strappy sandals). At least I'd made time for a pedicure before I went. :smileyvery-happy: Whew.

So Don and Darren - now that you are back from AU, how'd it go? Did you pick up anything new?

One of the classes I took dealt with coordinating Revit and Civil 3D data.  I found it extremely helpful (in fact when I was doing the surveys, that class got the best marks) and they put just enough humor in it to keep it interesting.
