Following the TAPPI Papercon conference in New Orleans, we have had a busy schedule. I had an emergency trip to a mill in California, followed by a couple more projects and vacuum studies. The paper which was presented at the TAPPI conference was accepted for the technical program at the PACWEST/PAPTAC 2012 conference in Jasper, Alberta. Jacqui and I attended this conference, which was combined with some vacation time in the Pacific Northwest. Here is a photo during my presentation, and one from the Jasper Park Lodge where the conference was located.
