Pat Kennedy - Your Washington, DC Real Estate Connection


On The Road Again!

OK, it's not the Tequila Express, a train that left Union Station at 1:00 PM with Cindy Jones and a bunch of DC area bloggers having a great and riotous fun trip to Rain Camp in New York.  I had to show a house at 1:30.  So, I am blogging from the Bolt Bus, a $17.00, three and a half hour ride from close to home to NY's Penn Station.  From there, I'll join the revelers who are getting reading for tomorrow's Rain Camp!

The timing is great, as it's the same week as the Inman Connect.  So it'll be a pretty intense four days of learning new stuff, meeting new people, and connecting with some of my favorite bloggers. 

So, with my suitcase full of dirty summer clothes and sun screen not yet emptied out, I've filled another bag with long underwear and wool sweaters to head to my favorite home away from home. 

At least I don't have to cross any time zones to get there!  I'm still taking pills to help get over the jet lag after my trip home! 

If I can get there, and if you are anywhere in the Northeastern part of the United States, you can get there, too!  Just click this link and come for all the fun and knowledge!

And Bob Stewart did not pay me to write this - not with money or even bonus points!

I would hope that we can get something like that around here in St. Louis.  It sounds like a real learning experience.

Pat, Know you will have a wonderful time! I signed up, have my Platinum Access Pass...but then  life got in the way. Will  not be there with all of you in person. Will have to live it through you and all the other wonderful bloggers.

I got to ride Amtrak from Philadelphia to New York back in 1999, and then we rode the subway all over New York. Had a great time.
