On the Road to the Breakaway Conference in Denver

I have been flying all over the place over the past couple months and I am downright tired of it. Nothing is better than having to take my 20″ HP HDX notebook through the puffer explosives detector because it won’t fit through the x-ray machine. I just love it when the TSA’s drool on my system because they have never seen a notebook this big before – and of course I HAVE to take it out to show them….

So we decided to drive to Denver for the conference instead. Its about an 8 hour drive from Omaha, NE to Denver if you take your time, so considering the ticket counter, bag check and claim, security and delays it takes just about as long to fly there.

We are going to stay a few days after the conference in Denver to catch up on some family time. Between everything going on at Schrock and the wrap-up and evaluation of TAC I haven’t been home much and my 2-year old son is not afraid to point that out to me 🙂

We are going to be staying at the Holiday Inn Select in Denver’s shopping district. I have heard its a nice hotel and the King suite looks pretty comfortable on their website.

Watch me on Twitter and if anything happens (yeah right what’s going to happen? I am driving across Nebraska) I will tweet!

    You going to visit CPAE like Shoe is? I visited 2 weeks ago. I can’t go to the conf. since I was just out there for a wedding. It doesn’t make sense to drive to Denver 2 weeks apart with this stupid gas.

    Make the best out of the road trip! I like flying, but I do hate all the extra security…yeah sure it’s keeping America safe…whatever.

    @browie I am speaking on a panel here about video on the Internet. I missed day 1 of the conference because of a scheduling conflict, and I have already started getting the “where you at” phone calls.

    @James It was pretty good for the most part. My 2 year old son decided he would rather not be in his car seat for the last hour or two. Can’t blame the kid… Put me in a 5-point harness for 7 hours and I’d be pissy too
