It was a tough choice on the night of Thursday, March 6, 2008. I was in the garage of the Venetian Hotel with Greg Visscher and my team mates Laurence Moroney and Arthur Yasinski and a tour bus (rumored to have been used by the band STYX). Could I stow away and travel for 45 days for a Code Trip adventure with seven Microsoft evangelists traveling the West promoting Microsoft technologies? It was tempting, especially as the tour goes through some of the cities I have lived in. (I am pointing to Missoula in the picture where I lived while studying at the University of Montana). With one more day of MIX and the finalists of Rock Band to be seen perform, I decided to live vicariously through the blog entries at: www.thecodetrip.com.
I heard that the bus may do a cross-country tour for PDC2008. Now that would be fun! Find me at PDC and I'll tell you stories of living on a bus for 18 months in Europe and North America.
