I am back from Calgary. I was traveling with another manager from the Centre. As we were in a meeting last night he got a call from his kid who was being rushed to the hospital. After waiting for more information, we packed up, checked out and left Calgary at 10:30 p.m. and started to drive home. It wasn’t my favorite drive ever (my record isn’t on the record) and we rolled into Saskatoon around 4:00 a.m. I drove most of the trip and I discovered Amp Energy drink. I was in a convenience store in Drumheller looking at what drink to get and I actually thought, “If it is good enough for Dale Earnhardt Jr., it is good enough for me.” Amp Energy gave me a boost was a lot better tasting than Red Bull. While driving through the night isn’t that much fun, it was nice to get home 18 hours earlier than expected.
The conference was a good one. I took some classes on disaster relief and I know more about the Incident Command System than I ever thought possible. Hopefully I will never have to put into practice what I have learned but if I do, I should be a bit more prepared. I also managed to get downtown and connect with Karen/OneHouse and also Dave King who returned my coffee mug Wendy gave him when he was in Saskatoon.
Mark is quite sick this afternoon and I am exhausted. The plan is to watch the Canadiens lose to the Philadelphia Flyers and then call it an early night.
