We’re back! Brandon and Nicole here. We partnered up during the Spring 2011 tour and we’re back to bring Send Silence Packing to 14 new places this time around. We hope you’ll follow along with us as we share the experiences and interactions from the tour as it travels around this spring. To start us off, here’s a bit on our flights in from Michigan (for Brandon) and North Carolina (Nicole) to the Active Minds national office in Washington, DC!
We both flew into Baltimore early Tuesday morning. The 3 AM Alarm worked like a charm.
Our luggage got the window seat in the train to the metro station, where we attempted to use our navigation skills to venture the redline to Dupont Circle.
It was our first time seeing the new office since the move, and we were amazed at the how much the space and staff had grown. We even had our own cubicle to make last minute preparations for the tour (Thanks, Becky).
All of the materials were packed and ready to be loaded into our 16 foot truck that will be accompanying us throughout the tour. The staff was more than helpfu with planning and debriefing.
We headed to the storage facility where the backpacks are kept, the truck was loaded with the help of some friends from the office and we were on our way to Philadelphia!
Stay tuned for our first stop at St. Joseph’s University!
