This is a series of posts from my road trip in 2011 where I traveled around the US and Canada giving talks, attending conferences, visiting IGDA chapters, networking, hanging out with friends, and dog sitting an adorable pug named Thomas!

Hi All,

The road trip is confirmed and much bigger than it was when I last posted. So here’s the details:

Part 1: I’ll be speaking at the IGDA Salt Lake City chapter1 on September 13th! I don’t have to be in Portland until September 21st. Who knows what will happen in between. IGDA Denver or IGDA Las Vegas perhaps? Visiting friends in Reno? Who knows!

Part 2: I’ll be in Portland from September 21st – October 2nd. My current plan is to be at the IGDA Portland (PAGDIG2) meeting on the 22nd. Is there anything else going on in Portland during that time?

Part 3: I’ll be in Seattle and able to go to Vancouver from October 3rd through the 11th (at least). I’ll be attending GeekGirlCon and the ACM/GeekGirlCon event as well I hope. Hoping to catch up with lots of Seattle friends while I’m out there besides possibly visiting IGDA Seattle and IGDA Vancouver.

Part 4: From October 12th through October 25th I’ll be going from Seattle down the coast until I hit San Diego and am hoping to go to the Leadership Forum after that. Is there anything going on around then for IGDA SF, IGDA SV, IGDA LA, IGDA OC, or IGDA SD?

To my friends let me know if you’ll be in your home area around then so we can try and arrange meetups. This should be one interesting trip!

Stay Awesome!
