A voyage through the Western United States

Posted on May 28, 2014 in News

Hello all!

We are just back from a six State, 5000 km (3000 miles for our Imperialist friends...) run down to Scottsdale Arizona and back again, after of course we finished showing accelerometers and strong motion recorders at the Nuclear Energy Assembly. It was quite an eye opening experience.

As it turns out, there hasn't been a lot of movement in that industry for 30 years or so; no one has built plants in North America, and no plants have really been hiring a lot of people until lately. So, this has created a large gap between the guys who are retiring, and the new guard that are just coming online - it was fascinating to listen to the stories, and the air was electrified (no pun intended...) with new technologies, new ideas, and very forward thinking folks that appear to be really driven to shine.

All told, we made some new friends that I hope will remain so for many years to come.

Now, did anyone know that when you drive into Nevada, go through Vegas, and then head north to Reno that you drive by Area 51 for about 300 miles???!!! Nor did I, and I was most unhappy that our American friends did not have any aliens on display for us to see, except for a weird shop in the middle of nowhere, which seemed somewhat suspect and not government sanctioned:


Needless to say, the green guy on the storefront was the only alien-y thing we saw.

I will have more on this trip in coming posts!
