I still have to travel way too much for work, but this year my goal was to at least never fly anywhere for just one thing.
So far I've managed to stack major projects so that if I have to hop a plane, we get a lot more than one trip worth of value out of it.
Heading to Boston now to Interview sources, participate in a mining policy working group, and present at the OER All Hands on Deck ocean conference. Oh, and a high school reunion.
I might also sleep.
