Live from Louisville

I’m in Louisville, Kentucky for the better part of this week to help one of our offices relocate as well as begin the rollout of Asterisk throughout our company. Part of this task of relocating them is setting up a VPN between our office and our client’s headquarters back in Western NC. This will be my first attempt at the VPN stuff, so everyone please say a prayer that I somehow manage to teach myself something else this week and that it goes well.

I really do enjoy travelling every once in a while. This is my first “major” trip since I started my job two-and-a-half years ago, but I certainly wouldn’t mind doing it more often if it’s justified. I didn’t mind being alone on the flights or driving around a city I know nothing about, but what stinks is when it comes time to eat dinner – who likes to go to nice places alone? Isn’t part of travelling for work purposes getting to indulge yourself a little and hit up all the “nice” restaurants? Oh well.

And while I don’t mind travelling alone, I certainly do miss my wonderful wife. We were talking about this trip the other night, and we could only come up with a few times since we were married that we’ve spent a night apart, and couldn’t think of any time that we spent more than one night. It’s not that we’re joined at the hip or anything, we just try not to be apart more than necessary – she’s my better half, and I am her’s.

OK, enough with the sappy stuff.
