I made the decision this week to cancel my trip to Denver for the Outdoor Retailer show. I booked the show back in November, and was so excited to be hopping back on an airplane after another long stint of avoiding large crowds in small spaces. But at the end of the day, I ultimately decided that it just wasn't worth it to possibly contribute to the continuing spread of COVID-19, or risk getting the virus myself. So I went ahead and cancelled my flight, which is so easy through Southwest. I also cancelled my hotel and AirBNB arrangements for the week. I hadn't told too many people about my plans, as I wasn't sure if they were actually going to happen, so I only had a few extra phone calls to make.
I really hope that 2022 offers more opportunities for travel and socializing. I am ready to get back out into the world!! The travel bug is biting again, so here's hoping that this thing actually goes away soon.
In the meantime, I'll just feel like the Big Blue Bear... Outside of the Convention Center (which is where the show was going to be), wishing I could be inside. Maybe next year?
