Hello from Salt Lake City, UT

Hello from Salt Lake City, UT
Saturday afternoon, 
July 19, 2014   (First post of
this travelogue)
We are in Salt Lake for Pat’s Stampin’ Up! convention.   We
were able to get reservations at the Marriott (Downtown) again this year.  This hotel is right across the street from
the convention center.  We got a corner
room, conveniently overlooking construction of a new building {grin}.
We left Evergreen Tuesday (7/15) and stayed in Green River,
UT (our normal stop).  Wednesday we
arrived in Salt Lake in the early afternoon and Pat started her meetings that
night.
There are about 4,000 SU demonstrators here this year.  In years past there were as many as 7,000 demonstrators
and they had to have two sessions of the convention.
I have been holed up in the room quite a bit working on a
computer project for our Eagles club.  I
have spent lots of time learning database management, software program code
modification and all those fun things. 
It is a fun challenge, but I have spent way too much time of the project
(probably 300 hours over the past several weeks). 
Today was the last day of the convention.  Pat has been going almost non-stop.  The last meeting just got out and there is a
huge line waiting for the elevator.  As I
draft this, I am stuck in the lobby until the crowd clears.  I had to come down here when they cleaned the
room – I knew the timing was terrible.
Yesterday, I drove up to Hooper, UT (about 35 miles north)
to visit with a good friend.  It is
always good to see Kent and talk about buses and cars.
Tonight we have tickets to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
performance.  This will be the third time
that we have seen them and it has been an amazing performance in the past.
Tomorrow we will start home. 
We are changing our route so that we can stop in Gunnison to visit our
two grandsons who go to college there.
That is all of now.
