The Fifth HOPE

About a month ago I got a call from a friend of mine.

Paddy: Want to go to HOPE?
Bob: I don’t know, it’s kind of far...
Paddy: Woz is speaking.
Bob: I’m there.

And that’s how, two days ago, I came to be leaving Lethbridge Alberta, headed for New York. For those of you who are unfamiliar with what HOPE is, it stands for “Hackers on Planet Earth

Today, I'm wearing a red shirt with khakis, glasses and brownish hair. One of the guys carrying around an iBook. Tom Owad is wearing a Marathon GRack shirt. I think I'm the only guy not wearing black right now.


Hoped you liked the trip down there The Customs on the US side of Sault Ste Marie can be assholes, i lived there for 3 years, id never get searched by the canadians going acrossed but coming back even though im a US citizen id get my car ripped apart. Hope you liked the drive acrossed the Mackinac Bridge. tis usually busy, although Id be making the trip From Clare Michigan to Sault Ste. Marie to work everyday bout 250 miles. that was until i got an apartment there. The best way to deal with those guys on the US side is be like yes sir, no sir anything i can do for you sir.
