Heading out to California for a whirlwind tour of hotels in San Jose and LA. I never really imagined that my life would involve "site-visits" of "properties" for potential conferences. I get to travel with a couple great colleagues which is the upside, but somehow having to go to two cities on the west coast and back to DC in about 60 hours isn't as romantic as the song that keeps popping into my mind when I think about "Going to California." It probably also doesn't include this much hair--nor do I imagine anyone will be holding up banners announcing our arrival. I could be wrong.
