FreshBooks RoadBurn 2008 Stops in Tallahassee

The guys from FreshBooks stopped in Tallahassee today on their way from Miami to Austin for SXSW. The Toronto-based company is an online invoicing and time tracking service. Basically, they can handle the back end of your business so you can be more involved in the front end.

Anyway, this post isn't about what they do, you can find that on the FreshBooks site to learn more. This is about RoadBurn 2008, their wondrous road trip (follow the blog) and their stop to see ME!

Their office had contacted me about two weeks ago asking if I'd be available to spend 20 minutes with the crew. Timing was right, I needed a distraction with everything else going on and with limited time, decided on a bit of geocaching at Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park.

Long story short, they arrived, I showed and explained a bit about geocaching, had some fun and went on our way. I'm thankful it was a gorgeous day. The guys are heading to New Orleans tonight.

I gotta thrill seeing Saul and Sunir opening the cache. There was a really creepy (and dirty) baby in there. No, not a real baby, a little plastic one. I really think the baby should be sitting on the crew's RV dashboard making the rest of the road trip, but someone who shall remain nameless was not comfortable with the baby. The FreshBooks crew left some groovy swag in the box and if you're a lucky geocacher, maybe you'll find it.

Stay tuned to RoadBurn 2008 blog for updates and get their side of the story :)

Pictured in the group photo are: Sunir, Mike, Eamonn (did I get that right?), Saul and Me.

Happy travels and thanks for stopping in Tally!

They didn't take the baby? Shucks. Would have made a great office mascot. :)

Levi and Aaron, thanks for stopping by. Levi, hope those are Canadian bucks we're talking about because Sunir embraced the baby :)

Sounds like this geocaching can be fun. I signed up. Now I gotta figure out who to work it... Later.

Stu - I assume you have GPS capabilities? It's really a blast! People do it all over the globe.
