That states meme.

It's been a long time since I've looked at this one. I've definitely made some progress, having added states like New Mexico and Oklahoma to the list.

Still, a lot is missing.

And it's also kind of sad that I so rarely actually see cities or states when I'm in town. Because the majority of my travel is for SM events, all I usually see is a hotel, and some of the surrounding restaurants. I need to start working on exploring the cities I'm in.

And don't get me started on international travel. This was supposed to be the year I traveled abroad for the 1st time (I'm not counting my trip to Toronto or the strip club on the Canadian side of Niagra.) Oh well. Maybe next year.

Hey now.. I live in Indiana.

Then again, I keep trying to leave it. Just somehow the state has a stranglehold on me.

Feh.

See?? You know what I mean! I lived there for a year and a half before I managed to run away.

Not that there's anything wrong with food-mediated exploration of a city.
It probably doesn't help that you're also often presenting at SM events, which probably lets you attend far more events than you might otherwise, but probably also keeps you from spending an entire day exploring the city.

Which states have you had the chance to explore beyond the "hotel/food" duo?

And while I highly recommend exploring the rest of the West Coast, I also recommend Utah, especially if for an SM event, if only because it would be attending an SM event in Utah. But really, it's a beautiful state with some gorgeous national parks.

I also probably use the word "probably" too much.

Re: Not that there's anything wrong with food-mediated exploration of a city.
You're absolutely right - being a teacher does keep me at the event, and for several reasons. One, I am busy, and don't neccessarily have the time to go out and explore. And two, I feel it is my responsibility to remain with the event. If an event is having me teach, their end of the bargain is to facilitate my being there. My responsibilities include being a part of the event, which includes playing in their dungeons, and being around during the event. So no exploring for me.

There have been a few times where I have been able to get out. I've done bits here and there of San Francisco and Los Angeles. I've seen other parts of Phoenix, Albuquerque, DC, Chicago, and Boston. But some places like Dallas and Denver? Only the path from the airport to the hotel and back.

It's similar to my experiences as an occasional presenter at tech conferences. Well, except for the dungeons - none of the tech conferences seem to have that. (well outside of suite/room parties) Pity, it might make some of the vicious Q&A sessions more entertaining.

Speaking of exploring the city, it was good to run into you and Lolita, however briefly, in Chicago that afternoon when we ventured out from our event and hotel over by O'Hare.

And of course, when you ran into us, we were ensconced in an event from which we never left.

You did have extra special responsibilities that weekend. Besides, if you had ventured out, we never would have run into each other that weekend.
