Training In Denver

March 18, 2017

 

I have done a bit of travelling as a part of my work in the Construction Services Industry.  I have traveled out of town for classes, and I have traveled out of town for job sites.  My trip to Denver was the first time that I actually flew out of town for either.

Post-Tensoning Level I – Certification Class.  It is one of those certifications that may or may not develop into a pain in the ass in the long run.  I have done Post-Tensioning Inspections on Slabs in the past, but what I was about to be introduced to was a completely new nightmare.  Not that complicated, just detailed and a lot of it.

So I found myself in beautiful Linn Missouri (sigh).  Not a lot to do here but go to class.  Took off at 4:30am on Monday morning to make the two hour drive to this little hamlet about 25 miles east of Jefferson City on US 50 Hwy.  Found my way to class, and then at lunch, started the process of settling in for the night.

There is ONE hotel in Linn Missouri.  I guess I could have driven into Jefferson City, but I went ahead and got a room at the Stone Hearth Hotel by the school I was taking class at.  Hey, I got my AARP discount!  And he even tossed in a room upgrade for me.  NICE ROOM!  Internet was a bit sketchy, and on this trip that was an problem with Verizon barely connected in the area.
