Switching Channels

Just a quick note to let everyone know that we are alive and well and parked at the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis (map), who have generously agreed to host us here as we attend the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, being held this year at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

This is a great spot, because we are actually parked in a fenced yard, so it's somewhat private (even though we are surrounded by apartments), it's in a great neighborhood, known as Uptown, with lots of neat restaurants, and the staff is generally in the office all day while we are out at our meetings, so there is someone to keep an eye on things. There is also a 15-amp power outlet, so we've avoided running the generator and annoying the neighbors.

When we are at General Assembly we do not have any extra bandwidth for almost anything else, including posting here. We do keep a separate blog on our conference activities, which is actually our official report, as voting delegates, to the Board of Directors of our congregation.

Regular posts will resume here once we finish our conference. In the meantime I will mention that we arrived here fairly late Tuesday evening, after our long day at Camping World and dumping the tanks at Cabela's. After we got settled in, regular readers, fellow bus nuts, and now long time friends Brian and Hillary came over for a quick pre-conference visit, and brought with them a wonderful home-made dinner including fresh home-made bread -- yum. They also brought with them their new family, a pair of beautiful little girls they have adopted since the last time we saw them. I must say the girls, 8 and 10, were exceptionally well behaved and even had an interest in buses, and we very much enjoyed our visit with the whole family.

  1. You're parked just a block from where I lived during high school. Tornadoes in the MSP area usually hit the north and west suburbs. Never had one downtown in the 45 years I lived there. But! There's a first time for everything so I believe in being prepared. We're currently parked in a south suburb too near the rising Minnesota River. We may have to move.
