Default Got excited too soon about MPG 2019

After traveling from Iowa the last few years to go to the MPG, I was very excited to hear that it was moving to Chicago and we would be that much closer to the venue. This couldn't get any better, right?

Up until last week, when I made the decision with my family to take a new job in Fargo, ND. The nine hour trip from Iowa to Ohio was just over 9 hours, now I will need to travel just under 10 to get to Chicago.

Does this mean that we will probably not go to MPG 2109? Nope, now I just need to plan additional time to/from the event, again...

Looking forward to the event!

Sorry to hear it’s a longer trip John but I’m very happy to hear you are still planning on coming. This is what makes the MPG so great... getting to see friends and sharing our knowledge and love of pen making! Congrats on the new job!
