I really enjoy blogging because I can talk to my fellow door and hardware professionals in a more personal way, without all the corporate-speak that makes my eyes glaze over (no offense, corporate speakers). Well, this conversation is about to get a lot more personal. I’m leaving on a family road trip tomorrow and I’m taking you with me.
Why would anyone spend their vacation time corresponding on a daily basis with their customers, coworkers, clients, and random Googlers? For one thing, it gives me an excuse to have some alone-time. Yes, I realize how sad it is that I prefer spending time with you to 24/7 x 2 with 3 kids and a husband…sad, but true. Here’s the other reason. Last year, one of the foremost New England hardware consultants moved south, but continues to successfully manage his architectural clients in New England. So I’m going to stop and see him during my family road trip, to show him the new Falcon exit device and find out if he will be including it in future specifications.
By the time I reach Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I have to be intimately familiar with the Falcon 25-R-L device I’m hauling along. I really like what I’ve seen in the training sessions I’ve attended so far, and I’m pretty picky about my panic hardware. But I want to make sure I know everything there is to know about the Falcon 24/25, and how it stacks up against other exit devices on the market. I’ve learned over the years that the way I learn best is to teach someone else. So while I’m learning more about this device I’m going to tell you about it too, and hopefully we’ll have some fun along the way.
I hope you enjoy these road-trip posts, because my husband thinks I’m absolutely insane to take panic hardware (or any hardware actually) on vacation. My kids don’t think anything of it because Crazy-Mommy is the only mommy they’ve ever known. Check in often so I’m not talking to myself.
Ciao for now!
