Personal Appearance: Part 2

Hi, back at my room at the hotel.  There were a number of speakers at the closing ceremony. You know how those things go. I did discover that the head guy in the Bureau of Blindness and Visual Services and his boss, the head guy for the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, both have very significant vision losses.  They were both there to speak.

My GPS found the art gallery easily. Unfortunately it was closed for renovations. Something for next year, assuming I am invited back, of course.

I also walked to the creamery without incident. Yum! That was lunch.

My GPS let me down when I was trying to get to the arboretum. It walked me two miles out of my way! Meaning I had to walk two miles back.  

I guess the lesson here is to augment any machine intelligence you are using with some ‘humint’, or good old human intelligence information gathering. In other words, ask.

On my way back to the arboretum I walked myself into a tummy ache and needed an emergency potty stop. I asked one of the construction guys for the location of a restroom and was offered the use of a Job Johnny!  Yes, please. Once more I sing the praises of the kindness of random strangers. Any Porta Potty in a storm! [Lin/Linda: she made me add that last line! ::groan::]

Once I got there the arboretum was great. I would have liked to have used my monocular to look at a few things better but it had condensation inside of it.  Not totally sure what happened there. Probably need to bake it in the sun to dry it out.
