Road Trip

. Tuesday, February 27, 2007

I will be out of the office all day tomorrow as I have a meeting in the Tidewater region of Virginia. We're doing a project for one of the region's colleges. The project originally started out with an engineering subconsultant, but they were way behind and wouldn't be able to get the job done on time. So we fired the subconsultant and decided to do the engineering in house. We were asking the client lots of questions because we have little documentation from the subconsultant and to help speed up the learning curve. It got to a point that we decided to have this meeting, lock ourselves in a room, and not come out until we have everything in order.

Meetings can certainly be boring at times, but this will be a good change of pace for me. I've been cramped in the office finishing up four jail studies and working on cleaning up the mess from the engineering subconsultant. It's good to get out of the office every now and then.

Another cool thing is I get to drive one of the company's Priuses (what's the plural of Prius anyway?).
