Our near future plans are to explore New Orleans for a few days (Karen has never been there), continue on to Atlanta for just shy of a week to visit the usual suspects (Eddie Tapp, Kevin Ames, Jimmy D and more) and then make our way to New Jersey (near Philly). Karen's parents haven't met me yet (they live in New Jersey, close to Philadelphia) and we plan to swap out my Jeep Liberty for Karen's blue/white Mini Cooper, which should make for a much more enjoyable play car to tow behind the bus. After that, we plan to attend the Gateway Burn in St. Louis (a Burning Man-related event that should reunite some of the folks I hung out with late last year).

In the next 30 days, I'll also be flying to San Francisco, CA and Detroit, MI to present my newly updated Photoshop for Photographers seminar
