I'm here in Omaha, The Gateway to the West. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny, 80 degrees when we landed. A far cry from the rainy Moraga (and snowy Medford). I immediately changed into shorts.
We're staying in a Doubletree (cookies!) in the downtown/financial district. Beautiful office buildings, hotels, and convention centers. Wide roads and wide sidewalks with trees and street lights. Looking out from my 4th floor hotel room window, I can see the baseball field where the college world series is played. It's only about 5 blocks away. The CenturyLink Center, where we will play, is about 6 blocks away.
I've only got a small sample size, but I'm very impressed with the city so far.
Staying here longer depends on the team. I shot and edited two features yesterday, but due to slow internet and a longgggg travel day, they've yet to go on the website. As soon as they do, I'll post a new article with the links.
Thanks for your patience, and your support.

Also, I'm working some pretty quick deadlines so blogging comes second. Expect fuller reports and more photos once the run is said and done. Hopefully later than sooner.
