From the partially RES related dept. It finally happened! Last year RES Software’s US-resident Cowboy Viking got the marching orders to head out west, to set up shop, in what happens to be my old stomping grounds around the Bay Area. While Philadelphia and the east coast have been an interesting and rewarding experience, as the song goes; my heart never really left San Francisco. Within the year I’ve been here on the east coast, a lot of good things have happened; we’ve trained and certified partners from Toronto down to Miami, from New York to Chicago. 2011 was inded a busy year in the RES US channel.
Here in 2012, it’s now time for yours truly to head “home” and focus on getting the western US territories stood up technically. As you may have noticed, we have significantly leveraged our relationship with Citrix this year, hence I really look forward to working more with the guys in Santa Clara in the near future. This article will kick off a series of mini photo-blog articles on a separate page (book mark this), started January 28th, 2012, covering the trip from Philly to San Francisco, expected to last 6-7 days.
Just on the off note: If you are wondering why I’m planning to document the trip, it’s because it’s just one of those things one rarely gets a chance to do. Besides that, I expect it’s going to be fun, at least in the eyes of a Scandinavian. My wife and and I are packing up our stuff in a bigass Uhaul trailer and taking the 3.000 mile drive (that’s about 4.800 km for you Europeans :) across the United States. Some of the folks around here ask me; Why not just have your stuff shipped and fly out yourselves? This is where I want to pause for a moment and remind my American friends that you and I live in of the most interesting geographical places on this 3rd rock from the Sun! There’s enough to see on the road to last you a lifetime. There are beautiful, wacky, tacky, terrible, awe-inspiring and jaw-dropping things to see all over this country and you have it all on your doorstep. Just get in your damn car and go! :)
With all that being said, here’s Mr. Rock from Detroit, who’ll explain what it’s all about (PS: if you’re stateside, click here for HD version.
The trip is now over! We made it safely to San Francisco. Read all about the trip on the pages here. (Currently being updated as I missed out writing in the last couple of days)
