I am spending the night at one of the most luxurious resorts in Michigan's LP, Shanty Creek. I am giving a program at the Professional Surveyor's Conference in the morning. Actually, this may be the earliest I've ever given a program. I should be awake by 9:30, but it's not my best time of day!

I got here a little after 8 pm. Here's the entrance to the Lakeview Hotel.

I was met by the woman who booked the program. I'm sharing this nice room with her.

Shanty Creek

I pigged out on a Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pop Tart from the vending machine (there wasn't anything healthy, so I just picked one I really like), reviewed my program so I won't mess up (I hope), and now I'm just chillin'!

Ooooh, looks nice, Sharkey! Are you like me? I would rather sleep in my tent than a hotel most times. I feel more germy in a hotel than in my own sleeping bag.

Hope all goes well tomorrow!

Hope your program goes well, as I know it will!

Ooh, my kind of "camping out"!

I'd wish you well, but your presentation would be over by now. Bet you knocked it out of the park.

Thanks, Lin- you know me, though. I embrace the germs

Chuck- It did!

vanilla- some camping! Although it was drafty by the window.

Ann- It was a brief bit of luxury, but long enough for me!
