EIEI 06 is over and the dust has settled enough to relate how it went. I think all involved had a good time and learned some things as well as enjoyed meeting and greeting other cyclists and HPV people. I will not tell you my troubles, but the delay in reporting on this involves a major move by my youngest daughter and her fiancée. A flooded bathroom, a broken toilet, other broken pottery, a minor argument with my DSL service provider that left me without internet service intermittently for several days at a time. When the DSL worked, the phone didn't. When the phone worked, the DSL was down! Arrrgh! Also this has been a busy season for my other small enterprise which is performing Magic and Balloon animals for local children. It also coincided with a huge increase of work load at my job involving several days of 14-16 hour work days (wish I got PAID for the extra time!) But that is the basic synopsis of my life since June 12! It is now July 1 and I am JUST getting to sit down and write up the notes from the program.

First of all I have discovered that actually such an endeavor is what might fall under the heading of "interesting". Certainly not restful! I had a lot of sleepless nights, and all, but this isn't about ME, it is about the event. For me the event started something like 9 months ago when I decided to keep this thing alive after the first year. Believe it or not, I am starting basic planning for EIEI 007 already. Maybe I can get ahead of it this time enough that I don't feel like it is nipping at my heels! If anyone has an idea for corporate sponsors, it would be a nice thing to know eh? help?
