Geo-Frontiers 2005, held in Austin, Texas, January 24-26, was a great opportunity to escape the sub-freezing temperatures of Michigan. What a change that was! From -20 to +70 degrees!

Getting there was an adventure in itself. Driving to the airport usually takes about 40 minutes. However, on that day it took over 3 hours because of a major snow strom. Driving was at 25 mph at best and visibility was practically zero, especially when a truck passes by. I escaped a major accident and left behind a tractor trailer in the ditch... better in the ditch than over my car!
