This is a little late because, well, I was a little distracted by it being a pretty exhausting trip.
The first awesome thing was driving (with my friend and coworker Matt Goodwin - the family stayed home) to the UN office in NYC in 4 1/2 hours, including two stops. Yes, only four and half hours. The best case scenario was three hours, forty minutes, so to add two ~20 minute stops and still make it within that time was pretty incredible. Yes, we got up at 3am and were on the road by 4, all so that we could get to NYC for a meeting by 9:30. Needless to say, we made it.
The second awesome thing was attending the NYC Camp for the first time. There were lots of good things about the event, but most of it boiled down to being able to spend time with my coworkers and people I've gotten to know over the past few years.
The final awesome thing was.. being in NYC for the first time. I'd never visited before and I look forward to coming back sometime when I have a little time to sight-see.
