Biasism? Is that a word? Well, here is the deal. I am searching all sorts of different shows, expos, and learning events and 95% of them have ONE thing in common. ALL ON THE EAST COAST! Yall talk about meeting at expo and stuff and that is great. It is no more than a few hours to a one day trip for most everybody on here. But, look at it from my point of view. What if they only held the expos and training over here in Washington, oregon, or california? How many of you would come then? I just get frustrated that i want to learn and grow so much more and if i want to really do that i have to come all of the way across the country to do it! Heck, even most of the posts i see in the landscaping sections about pavers and places to get them are all on the east coast and we cant get CRUD out here! (Can i say crud here? ) Bah! Frustration late at night with too much caffine and a free access to an outlet is NOT always a good thing!
