Bizness travel

For those of you who know me, you know that I travel quite a bit for work. It's not travelling salesman travel, but I am on the road quite a bit. I have travelled far and wide, mostly to less than stellar locations. I go to Dallas 6-8 times a year. I've been to Alaska twice, Hawaii once, and Asia twice (Okinawa and Korea). I'm not complaining, but, well, maybe a little. You see, my brother works in the same field that I do and his travels have never, ever sent him overseas. While I might go to lovely Texarkana, Texas, Kris goes to Daytona and Orlando. In his travels and work, my brother has gotten in with some race teams. Right up his alley, you see, because Kris is a huge racing fan. He has met lots of drivers (Tony Stewart, Greg Biffle, Kyle Petty) and made major connections with Jack Roush. Just this past weekend, Kris "worked" the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona race. In the pits, hobnobbing with drivers and grease-monkeys alike. Below is the latest exploit of his latest run in with a star. Now girls, you can be jealous too. Recognize him??? Good, now you can hate my brother too.

I don't know who that person is, but my parents would. They are huge racing fans. They go to Daytona every year in February.

If you can ever stow someone away when you have to go to Hawaii, I'm game!

That is Patrick "McDreamy" Dempsey. He is a racing enthusiast and drives part-time on some circuits.
