I always question if I can pull off a cowboy hat. I'm not a Westerner. I'm a Southern boy, born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I traveled west with my family many times growing up, spending time drenched in the history of the American West and exploring both the towns and the wilderness of a large swath of "The West" from Montana to New Mexico. I've camped in the La Sals and the Bighorns as often as I have in the Great Smokies, and I'm as familiar with the sights of Thermopolis and Moab
Matt - dig your new user icon :-)
Arrrrite MK! As soon as I saw the presenters I thought oh shit, Matt *better well* have him a honkin' ol' hat on his head!....but then fell out of my chair when that big beautiful boat actually floated up on the stage! 😁. And yes (responding to your blog post: great post btw ), you "pull it off" very well indeed....no mean feat .
Of course you would know just how to Look Sharp at the WHA. Liked your speech too -- that's a good "30 second drill" right there (as discussed :-)). Hope you had a really fun time, your book & article(s) got put into more hands, and somebody's gonna think about optioning your great book before too long :-) And again, congrats my friend.
