I am looking forward to attending and presenting a couple of seminars related to auction technology at The Alabama Auctioneers Association annual convention coming up June 5th through the 7th in Orange Beach Alabama.
In addition to having the opportunity to catch up with friends as well as make a few new friends, I will also have the opportunity to spend time in some very beautiful country.
It will not be my first trip to Alabama. When I was in my twenties and at the end of my service in the Army, I was looking for a decent used car to drive from Hinesville Georgia, where I was stationed, back home to Las Vegas Nevada.
A friend of mine had a brother in law who owned a used car lot in a small town in Alabama. I don’t remember the name of the town, but I remember the gorgeous country we drove through to pick it up.
After hours of driving and $700 I was the proud owner of a well used Dodge Dart. The car served me well for my journey home, as long as I fed it a quart of oil every time it needed gas, it was fine.
I have some fond memories of that drive home, and hope to make a few more on this trip to the great state of Alabama.
