Consulting, but not usually a luxury. You have to make it one, the opposite side of the same coin is that I am on the road ~250-300 days a year.

Your right, maybe the question is then, WHO should I go see this year?

IIRC, The 200 mile run up/down the river just outside of New Orleans?

This is actually HIGH on my list of things to do!! If you know ANYONE who will take two deck hands that weekend I will throw in liberal $$ for fuel and beer! My SO lives in New Orleans and I may be there that weekend anyway.

No question on this one.....
It would be the 24 Hours of Rouen in France.

Really...who doesn't want to see 60+ plus boats racing for 24 hours non-stop in some vicious water -- IN THE DARK -- on the River Seine (the boats have really cool headlights too!).

To me, that would be way cool.
