Windy City, Here I Come!

The windy city is about to be invaded by a bus load of Hoosiers.  The American Diabetes Association’s Chicago Diabetes Expo is Saturday, April 16, and myself and 54 other folks from Indiana will be there.

After seeing a blurb about it on the Indiana ADA facebook page Wednesday evening, I decided to reserve a seat on their bus.  So, I gave the office a call and, much to my chagrin, got an answering machine because the office had closed for the evening.  So, I left a message telling them who I was and what I wanted, and to please call me back in the morning.

On Thursday morning I received a call from a nice lady named Cindy, who provided details about the trip and the cost, and provided the mailing address for sending payment.  A $10 check and a trip to the post office later, and I have secured one of 55 spots on the bus to Chicago.  And I’m rather excited about it.

I don’t know if I’ll know anyone on the bus, or if I’ll run into anyone that I know at the Expo, but that’s OK.  By the time it’s all said and done, I’ll know at least 54 other people who have been touched by diabetes in some way. And that’s just cool!  I plan to take along a ton of business cards and promote my website and the DOC to anyone who is interested.  And even those who aren’t 🙂

I’ll be sure to shoot lots of pics to share when I get back, and may even attempt to shoot a video as well.  Guess we’ll just have to see what happens.  I’m not taking a laptop, but I’ll definitely have my droid with me, so you can expect to see plenty of tweets as well.

Well, until the battery dies anyway. 😉
