Almost Heaven, West Virginia

Woke up this morning to this view from my room at the lodge:

Yeah, I'll take that over a view of the Las Vegas strip or Baltimore's inner harbor any day.

Gave three talks today, with three more tomorrow and two on Saturday. I'm beat, but that's probably because, in direct violation of EMS New Year's Resolution #3, I was up until the wee hours of the morning buffing a presentation just hours before I delivered it.

As usual.

So now I am safely ensconced in my room, propped up on pillows with my netbook on my belly, pondering the room service menu and wondering which hospitality rooms I'll hit tonight.

And later, I'm gonna hang out with some cool EMS folks, and get real intimate with a quart jar of watermelon moonshine one kind soul gave to me as a "Welcome to West Virginia" present.

Yessir, it is good to be me.

    Instead of giving speeches, go rent a double 20ga and dog and kick those woods for grouse. My god.

    Beautiful. The Wife and I will be moving to North Carolina soon; we’re looking forward to covering a lot of that ground on two wheels.

    I don’t know about the watermelon part, but that moonshine is some dangerously tasty stuff (not that you needed a warning).  Enjoy!

    As I looked out my window into the Saudi sunshine, (woken up early by the morning call to Prayer) and poured myself a cup of coffee.  I happened to turn on my computer and check some things and found this…You sir, suck!  You and your watermelon moonshine are just not cool at all…have fun for the rest of us!

    Welcome to my home state, now maybe people will understand why she’s so hard to leave. I hope you get time to do some sightseeing while you’re here :)

    I was lucky enough to attend not one, but four of your presentations! I hope that you enjoyed ESCAPe 2012 at Pipestem as much as I did!
