Well, I am not as young as I used to be, but I’m heading West to the convention destination of all convention destinations: Las Vegas, Nevada for the 2014 International Roofing Expo (IRE) and NRCA convention.

If I were as young as I used to be, I might attempt to post a daily journal to this blog, but even in the days of my youth, the NRCA convention was such a busy time that I always had a hard time keeping good notes as I went through the days of trade show and seminars. There was no Internet when I was young and the convention promises to be busier than ever so I will wrap it all up later in bits and pieces, including a report that will be posted here.

So if you are seeing this before Feb. 25, 2014, how about coming out and joining me? Just click on one of the handy links you will find on the home page of this site. We are, after all, proud to be the official publication of the International Roofing Expo!
