In my ninth year of recapping my travels during the year – dubbed the Year in Places – I hit a new low. And in fact, it is so low I really need to go back through my year and confirm that it is indeed accurate. Update: Yep, it is accurate. Featured photo for this post is from the Big Slick 10 event with the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium. 2019 was a challenging year personally, and professionally. I’m happy to be in 2020 … Read Full Post

Closing out 2017 with my annual Year in Places. A list of locations where I spent at least one night away from home. Notably absent this year was a night in Kansas City as I didn’t make it down for a single Royals game this year.

There are only a couple of days left in 2015, but I think it is safe enough to say my Year in Places is complete with no more pending travel.

For the last few years, I’ve kept tabs on my out of town trips. To make the list, at least one night must be spent in a city for it to count.

For the last few years I’ve been keeping track of my days away from home. The qualification is an overnight stay. “Travel brings power and love back into your life.”― Rumi 2013 was an odd year travel wise. We had several weekend trips lined up, but for one reason or another, a few of them were cancelled. It was also the first year in recent memory that I did’t have a single business-related overnight trip. I need to find some out-of-town clients this year, book … Read Full Post
Fly-overs of Nebraska via helicopter. Awesome. Get of the interstate, just ever a little bit, and this is what you’ll find.
