Default Amsterdam

I'll be out of reach a few days the week of Sept 29. At least I assume so, I've got security screwed down pretty tight such you can't get into ORR.net from most IP addresses on the planet. I might be able to get in, we'll see.

Going to Amsterdam on the company dime. And the company airplane, too. Unfortunately, I'll be busy doing company stuff, too, most of the time.

So ya'll behave and mind the store while I'm gone.

Don't let Dutch courage get you in Dutch while you're there. Also, if you go out, make sure it's Dutch treat.

Probably not.

Likely just a Kindle. This particular company we're going to see makes interior components for aircraft. They usually show our folks a pretty good time.

Rumor has it I'll get a "random" pee-in-the-cup drug test within 2 weeks of my return.

It occurred to me with all this talk of government shut down down on Oct 1st or thereabouts, that I could just become stranded over there in Amsterdam in a decent hotel about a block from the train station with a company credit card...and no way to get home because all the airports over here are closed.

That would be just awful.

Actually I don't think the US Government runs many of the airports in The Netherlands.

Doesn't run most of the ones in the USA, either. Especially in Jo'ja.

But maybe you were worried that ATC would shut down. Nope, the controllers aren't subject to furlough, being "essential public safety personnel". You'll just have to come home. Poor fellow.

I think I'll take the 5th wheel. I found this nice RV park with fresh dairy products nearby.

Holy COW....I just went to their website...How do you pronounce that?

I wonder if the cows would wake you up like roosters?

You might have a little trouble getting the 5'er in there Wade! Those sure do look like little campers!

The name of the town is pronounced "UU trekt" most Americans want to say "YOU tech" but there is no "Y" and don't forget the "t" on the end. It's not far from Amsterdam airport.

I have checked the weather over there. Unlike Atlanta weather it will be remarkably consistent 63 F high all week. In Atlanta we get something different everyday.

Getting on the airplane in a few hours.

Well, that's close enough for non-government work. Almost, anyway. Nearly almost.
