Typing this on a Delta plane on the way back to NYC. Feeling overwhelmed in the best way possible by the experience I’ve had in Seattle.

Lots of firsts:

  • First time in Seattle (and Washington – was my 42nd state visited!)
  • First FTU
  • First Delta biz class transcon SEA-JFK
  • First Marriott stay
  • First taste of Washington beers

FTU Seattle was a great experience. I was able to attend 7 out of the 10 sessions – had to leave early to get back to NYC. The flight selection was limited since I burned all my SkyMiles for this trip, so had to take what I could get.

I have a lot to catch up on and a lot of new observations I’d like to share. Going to gouge myself with Girl Scout cookies (thanks, Jasmin!) and make a few new posts.

Oh, and here are the states I have left to visit:

  • Wyoming
  • Idaho
  • North Dakota
  • South Dakota
  • West Virginia
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Oregon
