My travel plans for 2015 kept changing, which forced me to postpone adding my last three of the contiguous 48 states to this year. Had my 35th college class reunion–the official photo to the left, traveled to visit family, and I saw some sites around Iowa (covered on my Iowa?!? blog). Otherwise, a pretty quiet travel year.
Hopefully, that will change in 2016.
First driving trip on the agenda is for the annual Music Library Association conference. This year’s conference is in Cincinnati. Northern climes in early March, oh joy!! Forecast is for rain and highs in the 40’s. Not great when I’d love to go somewhere warmer this time of year, but it could’ve been colder and snow.
This looks like a busy conference for me. I’m scheduled to perform Margaret Bonds’ Five Creek-Freedmen Spirituals on Thursday, coordinate the Paraprofessional Interest Round table and host a dinner at a nearby restaurant for fellow Trekkers on Friday, and demonstrate my new online resource, The Spirituals Database, on Saturday.
RB is staying behind on this trip because it’s school-related and actually cheaper to take a rental.
More to come….
Music for the Trip
As usual, of course, the playlist is an essential part of any driving trip. I’ve added another two gigs with current songs and old school ones I’d missed previously, filling my 16GB SD card. I’m just hoping the rental can play it without equipment assistance and can handle the volume.
