This truly was the experience of a lifetime, and I loved every minute of my trip. Everyone was a little disappointed to be parting ways on Wednesday. Some were heading home like me, some continuing on with the post tour heading east, and some were visiting other places.
I can also say that the only people in the Calgary airport at 3:30 am yesterday were the 5 Americans heading home from the conference. The United employees aren't even there at that hour!
I am pretty sure I gained the WHC 15 during the trip. I guess eating 1-2 buffets per day will do that.
If Dr. Moser doesn't pass me, I might have to take up blogging as a profession. I definitely like to eat, see cattle, and travel.
One of the hardest parts was deciding which pics made the blog. Because I like statistics, thus far you've seen 4% of all the pics I've taken. So, here's a sample of what didn't make the initial cut. Or at least I don't think they made it...sorry if there are repeats, it is hard to keep track of them.
I'd like to finish by encouraging everyone to attend the 17th WHC in Uruguay in March of 2016.
The final shout out goes to Linda Swiercinsky and family, WHC, CHA, and my fellow attendees. Again, Linda thank you for this amazing opportunity; it's been the experience of a lifetime! To the WHC and CHA, thank you for your hospitality and congratulations on another successful conference. And my fellow attendees, thanks for all the great memories, and I've very much enjoyed meeting you. For now I am out of time and money, so I should get back to school.
