While I'm certainly not the most traveled guy, I'm embarking on my third trip this year. I'm off to Vienna Austria for four days, and then onto Freudsthadt Germany for five days. At our company we have two Arbugh Molding Machines that we use for testing and production runs of our molds. Attached to one of our machines is a Wittmann Robot that is used to remove parts from the tool. Each year Arburg hosts their Technology Days where they open their factory to showcase their products, and to also demo different molding technologies. So that were we will be in Germany. Wittmann's world headquarters are in Vienna, so they invited us to go there first for four days, and they would put us up in a hotel and take us on a tour of their factory, and of the surrounding areas.
One problem has arisen though. Being a native to Southern California, I have never been outdoors while it is snowing. So how will I get to experience my fist snow? The weather forcast for Germany is snow all five days we are there, and temps in the low 30's to low 40's! While California has a ton of quirks, I'm sure going to miss the weather for the next nine days!
Anyhow, I will have my laptop with me, and each hotel offers wireless service, so I will post up some pics and stories along the way.
