WHY I’M TRAVELING My company has model railroad clients, so I’m going to L.A. for a trade show. But I’m also into model railroads myself. I’ve probably got about four hundred at home.
I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT… My laptop. It’s my universal device. I use it for work. I use it for entertainment. I use it as a clock. I put books on it to read. I’ll watch a video in one corner of the screen and work in the other. Sometimes it’s the only thing I take with me on trips.
BUSINESS AND PLEASURE If I’m going someplace for business, I’ll also take a personal day or two. I’m at the stage in my life when I might as well enjoy it. So I’ve stopped flying redeyes, and I always make sure I have time to really enjoy a new city.
