AAM – Day Two

I always thought our life was nuts, well conventions are nuts! We have been running around like mad men all morning getting the ready. Our company is presenting this morning to convention goers about the opportunities to create a mobile program for their museums. Not every museum can use a mobile like ours but I'm...

AAM – Day One

Ahhhh..... I'm comfortably tucked into bed after surviving day one of the convention.  I say surviving because I have spent the last eight hours on my feet talking to hundreds of people about our trucks.  While we are featuring the Gateway to Knowledge exhibit from the Library of Congress we are here to promote our...

Stand By for AAM

I want to warn our regular readers that I will be covering our experience exhibiting and attending the 2011 American Association of Museums Convention in Houston over the next week. Josh and I have wanted to be a part of this convention for years. It seams like each summer we get moved to a different... Continue Reading →

Giddy Up

This post was a week in the making, certainly not for its greatness but that I “lost” the images.  How does a person misplace digital images?  Well a person might have forgotten that they loaded said images onto a backup card and then labeled them as work images.  Then one might have loaded that entire...

Old Wrestling Abe

Bet you didn't know that Abraham Lincoln wrestled in his youth. That was one thing we used to talk about when really young school groups would come for tours of the Lincoln Truck. When Abe was a young man in New Salem he would often take part in matches with other hired help in the... Continue Reading →

Getting Back

Some of you might have noticed my absence from here recently, stress from many sources just made it so hard to get on here and share.  Even though my job controls most of everyday activities it is not often a source of stress.  I love the challenges of my daily work.  However I am currently...

Playing Solider

Soon after taking this job we passed by a park that was full of tanks, helicopters and bunkers.  While going by at 60 mph I didn’t really see what it was but knew that it looked fun.  Last week we were taking an exit to our hotel when lo and behold there it was, The... Continue Reading →

The USS Constitution

On our first visit to Boston we walked our tour and decided not to push on to see that USS Constitution but regretted it.  That trip was a sore spot for some time and not getting to experience this was disheartening.  Josh's parents had made the tour years before and raved about the ship and...

Boston Art

Boston was good to us this time, our last visit was not so great.  Boston actually was on our worst list.  The cost of being here has not gone down but at least this time we had some fun.  After leaving Concord we moved a bit closer to the city and made a plan for... Continue Reading →

No Grapes Here

I met back up with Josh in Boston earlier this week where we spent the first part out in the Concord area.  It was a very nice welcome back staying at the Concord Colonial Inn right in the middle of the historic downtown.  We usually stick to chain hotels to earn points but this looked...
