Next Wednesday I’m going to be answering the question “What happens when you put 70 librarians on a bus for six hours?”
I’m flying from Juneau to Anchorage and then I’m boarding a special motor coach hired for the six hourish trip between Anchorage and Valdez. The cost of the bus was pretty much identical to flying all the way to Valdez.
AkLA decided to charter a bus for two reasons – This time of year, planes get delayed by weather more than the pass to Valdez is closed. Secondly, our e-council (of which I’m a member) thought that a long ride through beautiful scenery would be a great way to get to know our fellow librarians better.
Will let you know the results of the experiment after we arrive. Hopefully. Rumor has it that cell and internet connectivity are limited in Valdez.
