  1. Hi Catherine,

    My name is Christopher (Blair) Maywhort and I am in the process of applying to this job opening (just saw it today on Andrew Hudson’s job list) although I have no idea if I’m qualified? I just wanted to say I read your post about your ‘quick’ trip from Denver to LA and it reminded me of the time I drove my neighbor’s car from LA to Marco Island, FL in 3 days! Barely enough time to look out the window at that pace, but at least we got to relax once we got there. That is very strange that all the hotels were booked! Hopefully better luck next time.
