February 2016 Month In Pictures

While I was gone quite a bit from home in February, it was a relatively fun business travel month.  I don’t have those often, slogging through repeat trips to cities I’ve been to a dozen times, just hoping to be home with family.  Going somewhere interesting doesn’t make me want to be away from the family, but it does kindle the fire a bit as I strategize how to bring my family back to cool places I’ve seen.

Kelowna, BC was up on the radar this month, and I was pleasantly surprised.  More on Kelowna in a future post, but it was worth the trip.

Here’s my month in pictures:

Oil Pipelines?

I really am curious what the deforested parts are.  Oil pipeline makes the most sense (somewhere in between Vancouver and Kelowna), but not sure where the rest of the path is.

This picture of my dad and I only makes sense if you know the backstory.  I was heading to the airport to start a mileage run early one morning when I recalled my father was on his way back from a mileage run.  I reached him via phone and we met in the terminal, him having just gotten off the redeye.  Turns out I was headed out on the same plane he just landed in.  Even more humorous was we both had the same seat assignment.  Like son, like father!  It’s also the only known selfie on record my father has ever been a part of.

Charlie Is Very Happy To See A Gift From Daddy

With Kelowna, a mileage run and a quick trip to NYC sandwiched in between, there was a lot of criss-crossing the country.  It was fewer miles than it was supposed to be given an invasion of the stomach flu at our house.  But, I enjoyed the trips and enjoyed getting home even more.  Here’s what the final map of February looked like.

March is equally as hectic with work trips but no (scheduled) craziness of mileage runs or leaving the country.  Hope everyone is having a great start to the month!
