I’m flying home on the 12th (with all hope), my dissertation is due on the 19th, and I want to go to Portland with Sharyn on the 28th. After Portland I was thinking of Missoula, but a snag has come up in the form of the Raptors Research Foundation Conference in Missoula the 26th-28th. I WANT TO GO! Do I have $190? Nope. All I can say is GOLDEN EAGLE TRAPPING AND BANDING!!!! HOLY CRAP!
Sorry, I get all droolified over the pretty birds. There’s even stuff with Harriers. I’ve been learning all about Hen Harriers in the UK, so I’m excited for a Raptor Conference.
I want to go.
The issue is saying, “Yes, I will put myself into debt so I can go see Raptors and see if I can get a foot in the door for a job/internship/volunteering. ” It helps that it’s in Missoula so I know my way around the town already. Strangely enough, I have never driven in Missoula. Ever. WEIRD.
