Take a Field Trip

We all learn something new every time we are on a site visit…even if it is somewhere we have been many, many times. I recently accompanied a smart group of rail specialists — enthusiasts and experts alike — on a transit tour to Seattle, Vancouver and Tacoma. This was my first time to Tacoma, first time on the Seattle Streetcar, and the Olympic Line in Vancouver (using vehicles borrowed from Brussels for the Olympics) had opened just days before. Here are five great reasons to make the time to go on a field trip:
○ Make new friends
○ Gain a new perspective
○ Try amateur photography and video
○ Reconnect with old friends
○ Get a stamp on your passport
And some things I learned:
○ Great ideas ARE transferable
○ Finances matter
○ Good design is important
○ Win-win-wins can be prevalent.
