Have been checking on flights, and due to the connetions, it would take me only 3hrs longer to ride my motorcycle the 1000 miles to the conference, than it would fly. So I might be riding to Santa Fe Nm.
There are so many highly respected people giving talks and presenting papers it's really a once in a lifetime event.

North America isn't really my thing but damn, there are some great speakers at this covering some really cool topics. I really wish I had caught this earlier just for the Final Presentation on peopling of Australia. I just don't think I can talk my wife into letting me leave her with kids on such short notice!

Hi peter,
It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to rub elbows with some of the most productive minds in these fields.
I'm still trying to talk myself out of talking myself into going.

I am going to try to make it, should be worth every penny.
I envy you. Pal of mine is going...I envy her, too. I will however go to the Ontario Archaeological Society symposium in Niagara Falls. Dillehay.

I'm going to do my best to make it.
The fact it will only take me a few hrs longer to ride my moto the 1000 miles and only cost me a couple hundred bucks as compared to $1000 flying there, makes it very alluring.
I really want to see physical materials that will presented.
