I have quite a few activities on the horizon, and will keep you abreast of what I learn at each event. As it stands right now, I will go to several events here at the end of July and one in September.
Next weekend, I will go on a field trip with some rock collectors from Durango, CO. While this is not explicitly an industrial archeology trip, interesting rocks and mining are so intertwined in this area, that I’m sure there will be something to see.
As soon as I am done with the field trip, I will drive east to Decatur, IL. On July 25-27, I will attend a chemical process safety workshop, hosted by ADM. I’m sure there will be a lot to talk about there as well.
In September, I am planning on attending the Society for Industrial Archeology (SIA) Fall Tour in Nashville, TN. I’ll have more details on that trip as September approaches.
Thank you for reading my post, and stay tuned, as I have been inspired to become more active in industrial archeology in the weeks to come.
