I've been everywhere...

Travel, I've had my share, man

I've been everywhere


Thanks to OP McCubbins - I was re-reading some of my earlier posts -- like 5 years ago.  Boy doesn't time fly when you are having fun.


In the last 5 years --

  • I was teaching CASE in Washington, Ohio, Pennsylvania; took one in Maryland, along with Mentoring in Minnesota and Missouri  ... and getting 'trained' in Colorado.


  • I've been to Indianapolis, Louisville, Seattle, and Washington DC


  • Toured all the finer places in Louisiana - including New Orleans TWICE.


  • Visited farms in North Carolina, Del-Mar-Va and Southern Iowa


  • Talked with Legislators, diplomats, farmers, and ethanol producers.


                    Secretary of Agriculture from Kosovo

  • Tip toed through Malaysia, the Philippines, and Hong Kong


  • Got stuck in airports in DC, St. Louis, Chicago - only slowed down in Dumagette and Lankowi



  • Saw cucumbers, corn, beans, goats, sweet corn, sugar cane, rice, cows, pigs, milk being produced (and there was more)


  • Played, worked, ate and slept immersed in agriculture and the great people who are in it.


I'm sure I could work up a list that would be longer than my arm, because Teaching Agriculture has been a great adventure these last five years (18 total).  I look forward to what comes next cause it seems like "I've been everywhere, man"...
