"Good morning America how are you?
Don't you know me I'm your native son,
I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans,
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done."1
Good Morning America - I'm on my way to Scaling New Heights in New Orleans today, it's just about 500 (air) miles from Oklahoma City (direct as the crow will fly), so I will be gone from OKC 500 miles just as the song says by nightfall (even though my SW Air flight makes a stop in Houston.)
It's been awhile since I was last in NOLA, so I will be glad to get there, get checked into the hotel and conference, and then head out to the French Quarter for some fresh gulf seafood, yummy.
What's on your agenda for today? If it doesn't include a trip to New Orleans for Scaling New Heights don't even tell me; but if it does, then feel free to share your trip and excitement in the comments to this blog.
