Reno at Last

We’re here at last: The Inside Self-Storage Expo in Reno, Nev., which rolls until Saturday and culminates with our popular Developers’ Seminar. I landed near midnight last night, after sitting on the tarmac in Phoenix waiting out the aftermath of a dust storm—yaaaaaaay. Nothing better than sitting in a metal tube, breathing in God knows what viruses and stale, recycled air. But now that I’m here (and I’ve taken a healthy dose of Echinacea), things are wonderful. The Reno Hilton—now the Grand Sierra Resort—is nice enough; and the attendees are bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!
This morning, we heard from our keynote speaker, Chris Sonne of Self-Storage Economics. And the educational seminars are well underway. In fact, I’m presently sitting in the back of the room a-tap-tap-tapping away while Bob Hayworth of Baja Construction explains the ins, outs and benefits of boat and RV storage. (I wonder if my mad typing is distracting him? Hmmmmm… It’s a good test for the man!)
It’s apparently coming on lunch time (and I’ll get to peruse the SHOPPING MALL on the floor below us!). But I’ll chime in again later with PICS from yesterday’s golf tournament, sponsored by DBCI.
