    Tour of Utah vs. Special Education Law

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I was supposed to be at the Special Education Law Conference this morning. Problem was that it was a half block from today's Tour of Utah stage start.

    What would you do?!

    That would be a rhetorical question, right?

    I can't wait until Saturday when they are starting 2 miles from my house!

    Since I’ve posted a couple of times from work and although I don’t think anyone cares enough to monitor our internet activity….of course I'd go to the conference!!!!!!

    actually thinking about it....the woman i directly work for would take me to watch the stage

    Haha! As one who has attended special ed laws conferences and recognizes their genuine importance, I would have been outside at the Tour of Utah course.

    As long as you weren't a presenter or panelist and wouldn't be missed....

    Hey Dutchess,
    Brewer and I are planning to go up to the stadium for the start tomorrow too. If you see me, come say HI! I'm the over-half-century-old malkin with the ratty gray dreadlocks.

    Malkin, haven't decided yet where I'll go, either just outside the stadium or near the zoo as they start heading up the canyon. But I'll keep an eye out for you Look for the salt-n-pepper pixie cut!

    We ended up by the zoo, by the "0 km" mark, and watched them fly by in about 13 seconds. Still fun!

    We rode Trax to the stadium and loitered around the parking lot for about an hour and a half. Looked at bikes, watched the sign in, recognized riders, and saw Bob Roll!

    That's so funny. I was in San Jose, CA at an internet conference while the Tour of California was rolling through town. Three of us cut out early and got to see the pro's powering up a mountain stage, think Andy Schleck and Chris Horner. Awesome. You can't pass up opportunities like that!

    Hello! I have a good news! After many attempts to find a good writing service, I finally did it! This site was recommended to me by my good classmate https://www.essaywritingnz.com/pay-for-essays/. He said that he pays money for an essay very often and always gets positive marks for it! I'll try to do the same!
