SOLIDWORKS WORLD 2015 – The lead in, #sww15 #solidworks

After a couple of days I’ve now started to settle into Phoenix!

A delayed arrival caused by someone activating the Oxygen system added five extra hours onto an already 24hour trip!   With the requirements to repack the oxygen masks and test the system.  However there was a bonus to the delay with the people from a connecting flight being placed onto other flights.   I found myself with a section of the economy cabin almost to myself which allowed all in this section to stretch out over three seat (and almost) get a good nights sleep!

IMG_6910Although on landing they do appear that they need to do some work on there repacking abilities! IMG_6911Saturday I managed to get up to the Grand Canyon! With limited time available I did it the easy way.  With a Grand Canyon West Rim Adventure.  A flight up in a Cessna 208 Caravan, a helicopter flight to the bottom of the Canyon, a small trip on the Colorado River, then back up on the helicopter!  It’s certain a big hole in the ground that is well worth seeing.  I need to come back and spend way more time than just the few hours I had!
