Greenback U is located in the northeastern quadrant of the lower 48. Raleigh, NC is in the southeast quadrant. And Raleigh is where this year's AASHE conference is taking place, so I guess it's not just the Dow that's headed south.
It will be a pretty full schedule -- pre-conference workshops on Sunday, opening plenaries Sunday evening, sessions from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. on Monday, then again from 8:00 a.m. until about 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday. I'm already looking forward to getting back to work, so I can get some rest!
Given the schedule, I don't anticipate having much time to get out and experience Raleigh. Still, for anyone who lives/works in the area or anyone who has a chance to get away from the convention center (even briefly), an invitation:
Comment on this post. Give those of us from out of town a hint -- where to eat, what to see, what to do. If you're a visitor, what did you find that you want to share an opinion of (good or otherwise). Use this post as a bulletin board for info only tangentially related to the conference. For stuff that's directly conference-related, there will be other posts. Trust me.
