Travelin’ Man

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):

Austin
Chicago
Detroit
Frankfurt
Freiburg
Los Angeles
Louisville
Minneapolis
Munich
New Orleans
Portland
Reno
Saarbrücken
Salt Lake City
San Diego
San Francisco
Seattle
Stuttgart
Toronto
Tübingen
Washington DC

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.
