— Post 1 of a weeklong series from the Entrepreneurs’ Organization Forum E-Ticket Annual Retreat —
We’ve arrived in Honduras from LAX via El Salvador. The final leg of our journey was delayed, so we’ve been waiting impatiently. After a breakfast of beer and pizza at 9 (2 flights after we started) … talking on skype … figuring out how to use iChat to video conference my office … texting the beautiful Erica in Hong Kong … and just general time-killing activities, it looks like we’ll be headed for Roatan shortly.
Of course, all this follows the unspeakable (and I mean that literally and figuratively) of the knife-edge decision of whether I was going to even make it on this trip. At one point, I was staying, and I pulled my luggage off of the baggage loader… only to have a change of direction, and to put my luggage ON the loader because I was going. (Of course, it was then 2 minutes past the cut-off, and they almost didn’t accept it, nearly sending me BACK to staying here …) But I’m here, I’ve made it, and I’m in good contact with those who needed me in contact. The world still spins.
The guys (in which I’m including Stacie) don’t know it yet, but we’re about to go ziplining in a few minutes… I don’t think I’ve ever done it “in the wild,” so I’m looking forward to it. More later tonight from our resort.
