My feelings exactly. When I am working, my schedule is totally inflexible. I see all these wonderful workshops and shooting excursions, and am totally bummed that I can't take advantage of them. Soon, though.. soon. (Nine months to retirement... but who's counting? )
Hope you have a great time.
Tom: retired guy lesson #1 (this one is free): the money that you have to spend on workshops is inversely proportional to time that you now have to partake in them.
