Went to the airport at 9 am this morning to pick up Joah Spearman who's in town on a semi-annual visit. I met Joah when he was in middle school back in 1996 and running on my high school track team at Berea High in Greenville, SC. Now Joah is the founder and CEO of Localeur, the best travel site on the internet in my opinion.

Found out that Philadelphia and Boston will be the next two cities up on localeur within a month or so. So if you're in Boston in April, check it out.

Came home for a change of clothes and then did four laps with Joah around Liberty Park. Great to see him getting into decent running shape.

That's weird, you have never picked me up at the airport.

Steve, he only picks up people from SC. Joah. Me. That's about it.

Steve- Rob just figured that with your crazy shenanigans that on your flight home you would just sky dive into wellsville.

I'm moving to SC then Jon. I would never jump out of a perfectly good airplane.
