North Carolina in October

Category : travel

Posted notice this in July, but now its finally time to think about packing for 10th Oct. Maybe that black jacket for starters and a few knee guards.

I have five things to write and submit first, and one or two ops to execute. Oh well, then I begin preparation for the seminars and workshops I am supposed to conduct.

Got a SkypeIn US number for the folks there to use to call me. Will print the relevant google maps for travel between Durham, Raleigh and Beaufort. Must download the Google Earth kmz files or fill the cache for NC (I'm sure they exist). That sort of thing....

Lots of my pants have holes. The soles of the Timberland YCC gave me five years ago finally parted company on the way to airport a couple of weeks ago. A Chicago airport cobbler had given up trying to glue it together in Sep 2005 but somehow it lasted a whole year before calling it quits. So even my reluctant self admits the first stop there has to be to a factory outlet.

LTL is at University of North Carolina Wilmington, along the coast, and that appears to be 2-3 hours away from Beaufort. Hmm... Coincidentally, LTL, a former site captain of ICCS, is now lab mate to an ICC international data manager! I remember Tim and he apparently spoke well of Singapore's submissions. How nice.

On they way there it's SIN-NRT-LAX-RDU. On the way back, it'll be RDU-LAX-SFO and then a BART to Berkeley, in order to subject my georeferencing tutor to her pesky student once agan. Then its SFO-HK-SIN. Okay, at least I have that figured out.
