Going down to the River of Jordan

Time for just a very quick update here...

We are at the Salt Lake City KOA (map), a quick scooter ride from the Salt Palace Convention Center, and theoretically right on the Jordan (although I haven't seen it). Long time readers know that we detest KOA, and when I have more time, I will post why this one is no exception (in the meantime -- if you come here, stay out of the pool). However, this is literally the closest legal RV parking to the convention center, and so we just had to suck it up for the duration. At least we have 50 amps of power, which has been handy in the 90+ temperatures here to run the air conditioning.

Wednesday evening, shortly after we got registered for our conference, we had a visit from Ara and Spirit, who actually stayed until Thursday morning, only the second time ever that we've had an adult sleep on our guest bed. Spirit and Opal managed to work things out after several tempestuous moments, finally enjoying a peaceful coexistence as members of the exclusive dogs-with-goggles (and helmets) club.

I'm afraid that's all I have time for -- we are seriously overbooked while we are here. It did not help the schedule that last night's farewell party for outgoing President Bill Sinkford included a surprise (to him as well as us) appearance by The Persuasions -- I was out way later than I planned; they may be old, but they've still got it.
