An inspiring statement brought to you by the good people of the Days Inn in Gunnison, CO. Here on the last night of the 2016 Field School Western Excursion it is a poignant reminder of how close I came to not attending this class. There was expense involved, but it was the chance to really get to know several of my fellow grad students that finally made me take the chance and enroll. That may have been one of the best decisions of my life.
