We returned this afternoon from spending most of the week in Salina, Kansas. I had been working (for about 6-8 months ) on the team putting together a Disaster Response & Recovery Training Institute held there and had left home early Tuesday morning. Hunky Husband had been held up to provide adult supervision to the lawn service team that was servicing and turning on our lawn irrigation system for the season. He arrived in Salina before I awoke on Wednesday, morning. One of the IT guys was kind enough to guide HH to our room in the military housing. Similar to a low-end, but well-run, motel, the charge was $30/night and meals in the mess hall were a bit over $6/person/meal (noting that the organization with which we volunteer was charged for 150 persons each meal, regardless of how few showed). The facilities that we occupied and used were part of a Kansas Army National Guard Training Center.
I was slaving over a hot computer most of the time (7:30am to, sometimes, 9:00pm) while HH was visiting various classrooms to provide the required annual monitoring of each of the instructors presenting.
We are tired, but glad we went!
