alt: the AfriGeneas photo at the IBGS from 2009 is a keeper AYWalton and still one of my favorites

AYWalton: that was a great time!!! anytime I run into other researchers is a great time!

vicjorob: AYW-don't forget they have some events on Wednesday for early bird arrivals

AYWalton: oh yes, I look forward to as many as possible.

alt: I doubt it daviss

daviss: ok alt

AYWalton: I was in Salt Lake in 2006 and that was wonderful.

daviss: I wonder how the weather is in Oct

AYWalton: ProfDru is in da house!

HistoryBuff: Hey ProfDru.

alt: hello ProfDru...have you 'landed' yet? LOL

ProfDru: hello gang

daviss: hello ProfDru

ProfDru: not quite alt, lol

HistoryBuff: It's good to be on Cloud 9 sometimes isn't it, ProfDru?

alt: well congratualtions on the success of your program ... KUDOS to DRU !!!!!!

ProfDru: just posted a video from program on my blog, Hat With an Attitude,

HistoryBuff: Well deserved congratulations are in order I'm sure. :}

AYWalton: I like that hat with an attitude, ProfDru. Just watched it!

ProfDru: thanks everyone

alt: and ProfDru ...thanks for the thanks on the hat photos, my pleasure.

HistoryBuff: Very good display of photos you have there, ProfDru.

daviss: hmmmmm I just did a mapquest... 700 miles to SLC driving

AYWalton: And so glad that your program was successful! So will this become an annual tradition?

alt: an overnight drive, huh daviss?

ProfDru: angela, I'm hoping it will be an annual tradition. I meet with a local county next week to discuss doing the program there in June.

daviss: seems like it alt...

vicjorob: daviss -- Weather in Oct in SLC is gorgeous! Utah has dry heat and could be in the middle of an Indian Summer. Or it could be a typical fall day. Bring a light jacket, wear long sleeves, and dress in layers that can be shed at will.

daviss: thx vicjorob

HistoryBuff: Sounds like good advice, Vicjorob.

alt: I can't do more than 350-400 miles in a day anymore daviss ....takes me 2 days going to NJ to visit my son and that's only about 650.

AYWalton: well 650 miles is a long trip. even 100 miles is long to me. I was at SLC when AAHGS was there in 2006. It was truly beautiful.

daviss: gotta take your time alt.. thats what I do even when I go to Moreno Valley Ca

AYWalton: I look forward to going back.

alt: me too anymore... Ft. Wayne or Cleveland is about my speed at this point in time.

vicjorob: alt -- I've driven from SLC to DC several times. It's about 20 hours of straight driving to Des Moines, which is the halfway point. I can empathize with you about the 350 mile daily max though.

AYWalton: wow vicjorob, that is amazing. I wish I had the stamina for a long road trip like that.

vicjorob: I was young then. No more. alt- so why the drive? Do you not fly? How about the bus then?

AYWalton: lol I hear ya.

daviss: ProfDru are you going to SLC?

AYWalton: I don't have the nerve to undertake such a long trip like that. I would love to try the train though. With a travel companion that could be a fun trip.

HistoryBuff: Or Amtrak?

alt: I fly now vicjorob, but with the airport security that's even a hassle.

ProfDru: probably not

HistoryBuff: I hear ya, Angela. I love to travel by Amtrak.

vicjorob: AYWalton -- I love the train too but gong across country you are routed through Chicago which has as long as 12 hour layovers.

AYWalton: oh gracious! That is a bit long, unless you have something to do in Chicago. well I have to run folks. Gotta edit my podcast and upload it.

daviss: bye

HistoryBuff: Unfortunately for others, I love the Chicago layover. I can find things to do during that time.

alt: take care AYWalton

AYWalton: have a great day folks and don't forget the chat tonight.

HistoryBuff: Later, ayw.

AYWalton: and the geneabloggers radio show afterwards---special topic will be African American genealogy.

daviss: sheesh

AYWalton: ProfDru, Tim Pinnick among the guests.

HistoryBuff: If I don't have any problems from my home wifi, I will certainly try. I'm definitely watching the program.

daviss: I will strike out on both well the chat and the radio show

HistoryBuff: Geneabloggers at 10 p.m. EST?
