Although Sheila and I have been on the road for two weeks, I'm just now getting a chance to send out a few pictures. I apologize for the delay, but it's been rather hectic. The plan for this trip was to drive out to good friends Bob & Mary's place in Indiana - then fly from Dayton to Manchester, NH, where we stayed at the home of the owner (Lee) of my new consulting company. I'll be helping Lee with his four days of seminars and then I'll give mine the next Monday. During the weekend, we drove out to see one of my Eagle Scouts and an old friend from my elementary school - both in Dover, NH. After my seminar Monday, we'll fly back to Indiana to complete our visit with Bob and Mary - visiting the world-renowned Dayton Hamvention (ham radio gathering). From Bob's, we'll travel to up to Ann Arbor, MI, for the wedding for the daughter of good friends Bob & Joyce, then back to Bob & Mary's and off to Oklahoma to visit my cousin Mike and his wife, Wanda - then head back to Colorado in time for our regional ham radio convention in Estes Park! Confused? I had to record a detailed itinerary to be sure we were in the right place at the right time!
The picture below is of a black-headed chicadee sitting next to a fake bird on a birdhouse. This was just outside the visitor's center on I-270 just north of St. Louis. We ended up staying the night just east of here. Otherwise, it was "the rolling hills of Kansas" most of the day.
