Rural Tourism Training

I took the day off today to work with Marci and WenDee at a training for rural tourism folks. It was such a  cool experience to be involved in a Kansas Sampler project.

My part of the day was to show folks how to blog, and a quick overview of Facebook and Twitter. It was so incredibly cool to see folks willing to jump in and give things a go. There's so much potential for rural Kansas to use these tools to tell people what there is to see and do.

Marci refers to folks who are willing to "do dirt" to see what's on the backroads as having an "explorer" mindset. Explorer types want to experience the local culture, whatever it is. I can't imagine traveling any other way, myself.

I was so jazzed that after the event, I did a little exploring myself where I caught this little bit of nature.
