Why cant they ever have one of these things in SC or NC or GA? Every time I see something that I would LOVE to attend, it's always 1000 miles away.

Oh well.

I think Steve Berry is in charge of this thing, and he lives in Georgia. Maybe he thought the weather would be nicer in Arizona. In July. Uggh.

yeah, i'm thinking we might have to sleep during the day, and live at night. would they be up for that? the whole conference taking place from 11:00 pm to 5:00am. ugh. bad idea.

very often we have highs in the mid-seventies here in MN in july. i'm not sure how i'll handle such a drastic shift in temp.
