My Life Is Just So Dang Glamorous

If you can't handle sarcasm, you may not want to read this post.

Welcome to Life on the Road With Erin. As previously mentioned, I am hanging out on a shooting range this week at the National Police Shooting Championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I'm staying in a hotel that does not deserve to be called a hotel, and learning all about dry air, nosebleeds, tumbleweed, and more.

This lovely picture may just look like dirt to you, but to me it is a picture of approximately 50 hot shooting lanes (active fire). Granted that is 50 hot lanes in the middle of miles of dirt. When I say we are out in the middle of freaking nowhere this week, I mean it!!

Usually at a trade show we are kept hopping the whole time. But due to the nature of this particular event, where all the attendees are very busy shooting, we have a lot of long extended periods of downtime. In fact, one may venture to say we are bored! When the attendees have finished competing they come and visit us, but that only happens in spurts every so often. For the most part, it is QUIET. (This is my "booth" for this particular show. And a co-worker who likes to be nameless is pictured quietly in the background.)

This is my bored face. It's not my best side.

And these are the only 2 things keeping me alive. Diet Coke and the Blackberry. Today I wrote over 100 emails on my Blackberry before the battery finally died at 2 pm. The last 1.5 hours without my Blackberry nearly killed me.

There are perks to traveling. For instance, tonight we had dinner at PF Chang's. Have I ever mentioned how much I love that place? I have a picture of the beautiful dessert I ate tonight, but blogger is refusing to post it for me. You'll just have to trust me that I ate quite well this week.



  1. Ah, I love a dirt state... My parents live east of ABQ and they love it. I would die if I had to live in the more desert-y west side of the city. Ugh.

  2. In just four short hours I will be back to blessed Virginia with it's naturally green growing plants. Yeah!
