Just about ready to call it a day here in the office of Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction before I head off to National Pavement Expo in Charlotte, NC. We've got a heckuva program with quite a few new speakers -- and more than half of the topics are new ones. So if you're debating whether or not you should attend, my vote is to hop in the car or get on a flight and come on down. And if you do make to Charlotte make sure to stop by and let me know how your business looks for 2009. I will be spending most of my time (when I'm not on the exhibit floor) in Room 206 at the Charlotte Convention Center. If you can't make it this year just drop a note here and let me know what you expect from the upcoming season. Hope to see you at NPE!
