My first vacation in several years

Friday, January 20th, 2012

My wife recently came to me and asked if I wanted to go to Hokkaido Japan, Sapporo to be exact, for The Winter Snow Festival.  It took me about half a second to say yes.  Like many of you I never find a good time to take a break.  February is a busy time for us at work but I have gotten all of my ducks in a row and I’m ready to take off.  Then a thought came to me, we have customers in Hokkaido.  And there is a university there too, and it has a lot of wildlife biologists.  So my vacation is now a work trip.  No complaints from me about that.  We will take some video and post it up on the web when we return in mid February.  One of the cities we are visiting reported a low temp of -30° C. yesterday.  Yippee.
