  • Who's going? SPEED B.A.G. V - 2014

    Well, I finally got my airline tickets to fly out to Keyport, NJ for the 5th Annual gathering — SPEED B.A.G. V!!

    I look forward to this event every year so that I can hang with some really great people. Ask anyone who has traveled to Keyport to attend the gathering and I'm pretty sure they will say it's worth it!

    I'll be flying in a day early this year. This will be nice for me because in the past I've always flown the Red Eye from Seattle to Newark on Thursday night, arriving early Friday morning. I can never sleep on the plane, so I lose a day's sleep. This year, I'll have the extra day to catch up on my sleep before arriving at Real Gymm on Friday. Can't wait to see Donnie Blanks, the owner of Real Gymm, and his beautiful wife and 3 sons. They are wonderful hosts of this event. Donnie's gym is in a new location this year, and it's a HUGE facility, with a fantastic water view of New York City.

    I'll be meeting up with Lisa (speedbag4life). We're going to share a rental car and lodging. Can't wait.

    So, I'm wondering who else has made reservations to attend SB V on July 11, 12, and 13?

                  If flying, you'll need a rental car unless you're able to arrange a lift from a fellow bagger. Just set your iphone's Google Maps for Keyport, NJ and follow the directions. The hardest part for me every year when I arrive is leaving the airport! If you take the wrong freeway entrance, you'll be headed for NYC!

                  I'm not sure how hard it is to find if you're driving up from N.C. But, whichever way you come, you won't regret it.

                  Maybe you can parachute in. Now that would be cool!

                      Cost of rental car is sometimes more than the plane ride.

                        Folks- I am sad to say I won't make this one. Yesterday I handed in my resignation at EA, where I have worked for 10.5 years. I will be joining the small IT company I co-founded full time, on July 7th. The demands on the growing business dictate that I put full focus on it immediately. I will miss seeing everyone, watching Art of the Bag with dear friends, and seeing the new gym.
