Well, I find myself neglecting the blog again as I’m traveling. I took off from work this week and have driven many a mile.
Went to Chattanooga over the weekend, then drove to Arkansas to see the family. I’m now back in Tennessee gearing up to lead a two day tour of Shiloh National Military Park, where I used to work as a Park Ranger. (I have photos of this that I may post when I get back to Mobile, if I’m feeling brave!)
I’m playing tour guide for the next two days for a tour group from Freed-Hardeman University’s Golden Year Reunion. (the reunion attendees have the option of coming to campus two days prior to the actual reunion to take part in my tour)
I admit that I’m a little nervous. Although, every year I’m nervous beforehand and then when our group actually gets back to the park, it all comes back to me. It’s just the idea of being “in charge” and up in front of a group for two days and not knowing exactly what to say that scares me.
This is the 4th or 5th year I’ve lead the tour for the university, and it always turns out to be fun. Plus it’s nice to catch up with old friends who still live in Henderson.
It’s wonderful to have friends who you only see once a year, but who once you see, it’s like you’ve never been apart. I’m fortunate to have many of those.
