Krissy and I sat down with a calendar today and blocked out the dates and places I will traveling on and to, and, well, damn. Between now and the end of the year, thanks to tours, conventions, appearances and speaking engagements, I am on the road for a non-trivial portion of every month of the year save December (this included January and February). On one hand, this is a good thing, since I will get to see folks and not default to my base state, which is “stay in my office and moulder.” On the other hand, it’s a lot of travel. On the third hand, I’m not going to have to pay for most of it, so at least that’s good. On the fourth hand, I should probably be planting trees to offset all the carbon I’ll be flagrantly spewing about. On the fifth hand, wow, I have a lot of hands all of a sudden.
Just for fun, here are the cities I know I’ll be visiting this year (also counting the ones I have already been to):
Salt Lake City
I’ll also be visiting Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati, but those are all day trips for me. There are also a couple of cities that I’m not putting in there because my travel to them is not yet confirmed, but they’re likely.
As I said: It’s a lot. And it’ll be fun. But it’s a lot.
