Park City

I am in Utah for work and have been so busy I haven’t had the chance to write any posts or read any blogs. It’s a good busy though as I’m getting to meet so many of the talented people I work with. Even going to the toilet can be a challenge because I see people I know en-route but have never met and end up stopping to chat. It’s lucky I haven’t wet my pants yet. Although I did lock my room key in my room on the first day and spilt tea on my breakfast yesterday. I’m also giving two talks today and am a bit terrified about that. I also seem to be suffering from jet lag, insomnia, and have a headache.

It’s a beautiful spot. We’re in Park City which is about a 50-minute drive from Salt Lake City and at an elevation of 2000m. Here are some pics of the local area.

  1. Maybe I’m remembering incorrectly, but didn’t you do something like lock your key in your hotel room the last time you went on one of these trips, or was that a different trip? šŸ˜€

    1. I accidentally went into someone else’s room last time and made myself comfortable šŸ™‚

      1. That’s right. I knew something had happened šŸ™‚

  2. Looks lovely. What are your talks on?

    1. Thanks! I’m giving a flash talk which can be on anything I want and I’m talking about Busby. I’m also giving a talk on Simplenote support. Simplenote is a note-taking app and it’s fantastic.

      1. LOL šŸ˜„ Busby. I like that. I’ll checkout Simplenote.

  3. That dry landscape looks a bit like South Africa šŸ™‚
    Sounds like you are having a great time. The altitude won’t help with your headache – maybe try drinking more water? Of course, this would have the side-effect of worsening your loo trips!
    I have missed your posts – and thought you might like to see one of mine on Red squirrels – when you are back in the blogging world!
    Good Luck with your talks. Once you begin you’ll be fine. šŸ™‚

    1. Yes, I’m sure the altitude is having an impact. It’s incredibly dry here too. I can feel the dryness in the air. Red squirrels, eh? I’ll definitely check it out.

      1. Johannesburg is at an elevation of nearly 2000 metres and very dry too. It took me a year to acclimatise when I moved there from the UK!
        I hope your talks went well, and you can relax and enjoy the rest of your stay. šŸ™‚

  4. Good luck there, the best happy engineer I know. Of course you’ll rock! Exercise, drink more water, visit the lol more frequently and transfer the meeting to the restroom!! Just kidding!
    Have a great time!

    1. Haha. I’m feeling a bit better this afternoon so hopefully I’m getting into the right time zone now.

  5. Your problems are nice to have šŸ™‚
    I am sure you will do well with your presentations. All the best.

  6. You’re a busy lady Rachel! Lovely area, hope your jetlag passes quickly and wishing you all the best with your speeches, sure you’ll shine šŸ™‚ Thanks again for all your help recently, really appreciate it šŸ™‚

  7. Did your talk go well? You are very brave to do that!
