In just a few short weeks I’m going to find myself standing on this baby! She’s the USS Makin Island and right now she’s somewhere 90 miles offshore from San Diego. On February 16, seven other bloggers and I will take a helicopter from Coronado to the navy ship. Once there we’ll get a tour, lunch and seminars before flying back to San Diego. All of this is coordinated through the Avere Group, who I was lucky enough to be introduced to last fall. I can’t wait to tell you all about it once I return. Until then I’m doing pushups every morning just in case they make me prove myself on deck. I won’t let you down Dad…I won’t let you down.
