Thanks to a tip from Girl Programmer and your NSF tax dollars Southern Man got a little grant to fly up to a MOBILE Lab workshop hosted by the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire.
Our host and one of his student assistants.
Southern Man hard at work.
It rained most of the time but that didn't stop Southern Man from picking up about a dozen geocaches during the workshop. He also came home with a shiny new WD Element external drive.
So Southern Man got to travel on someone else's dime, geocache (and add a new state to his list), learn new stuff, and pick up new toys. Is there a better way to spend three days?
