Nordic Geographers 2019

First announcement: Nordic Geographers Meeting 2019 in Trondheim, Norway.  I presented at this conference a few years back when the University of Iceland sponsored it.  The paper I presented led to to this publication.



 A great conference (and Venue).

Sun Country Airlines

The lesson here, is do not take the last Plane/Bus/Ferry/fill in the blank, to return home

Sure, if you were vacationing in Mexico and used the seasonal airlines called Sun Country, you might have been screwed when poor weather cancelled flights.  I can relate from a layover in Philadelphia.


Yet, I also know to not use the last option if I can.  Ferries between islands is one example.  If you miss the last one, you might be spending the night.  So why add stress and take a return trip earlier.



Be sure to fill up the gas in your car rental before returning the car to the boat dock at Sandy Point Landing North Caicos.

Curling finals

Sorry but I have been at the NERR conference the past few days, so I didn't get to report the final scores of the World Men's Curling Championship in Vegas.

Sweden beat Canada 7-3. for Gold and Silver, and Scotland earned the Bronze over Korea 11-4.

All great times on the ice in Vegas.


Here is Skip Niklas Edin going backwards.

Medal day in World Men's Curling!

So the final day has come to Curling in Vegas.  It is down to four teams:

Bronze between Korea and Scotland, and the gold between Sweden and Canada.

I will say the Scotland fans are a small but powerful and enthusiastic group.  Canada fans are plentiful and colorful!  (I am for Sweden if you don't know.)

The ice will be hot in Las Vegas today!

Team USA has qualified for Playoffs

If you are not in Vegas, you can follow the excitement at this link.  Cable TV coverage is spotty.

Sweden and Scotland are in the lead with 11-1 in the Round Robin.
