Today, I visit Sault Ste. Marie for the first time -- I feel some of the same excitement (and intrinsic motivation -- see previous posting) -- as I felt taking off for Africa. I enjoy visiting new places, especially when I can be home to my family the same day.
Of course, the trip for a meeting with a prospective new employee is quite strenuous, with plane connections each way; meaning I'll be flying and in airports about 9 hours today for about four hours meeting time. Still, I'm looking forward to the trip. With Blackberry and laptop in hand, communication with home office won't be a problem.
