Road Trip!

April 20, 2012

There are rare moments in life when you hold cards and simply can’t believe the cosmic tumblers have flipped such a great hand your way. On a 2009 summer road trip with my son, we were driving North in California, an hour from the hotel near Pismo Beach. It was after 6PM and Kyle was hungry, so I took a random exit at Highway 246 in Buellton, CA, drawn in by a sign that claimed it was the home of Split Pea Soup. As I scanned the ample commercial signage adorning the once rural route, a mustard yellow sign stood out: “The Hitching Post.” No, it couldn’t be… As I turned into the entrance, the perspective of the sign changed and as I looked back to the restaurant on the left and the sign on the right, I swear I saw Paul Giamatti as “Miles,” stumbling out toward the orange setting sun. I was giddy. Could this really be “The Hitching Post” from one of my all-time favorite films, “Sideways?” It was, and the cards I soon held were the wine list and menu.

Starting Tuesday, you have the opportunity to grab a buddy and drive to one of our 2012 Kronos Customer Experience conferences. There, before wine, you can learn about our cool new products and even some of our services:

We’ll also have an education booth staffed with team members (and free chocolates) who can answer your questions about training opportunities and KnowledgePass.

Oh, and if your road trip includes Orange County on July 10 and San Francisco on the 12th, stop into the Hitching Post. The Pinot Noir is a trip in itself.
