I just bought tickets to an Outstanding in the Field dinner. Could have chosen several places close to home, within a days' drive that is, but I went further: we're going to have to travel to a place we've never been before and I love that idea.
Here's a link to their 2014 schedule, tickets went on sale today. Actually, they were scheduled to go on sale yesterday but the server crashed due to 400% heavier traffic than expected. Anyway, check it out, maybe there's something fun happening near you!http://www.outstandinginthefield.com/events/
