You've done the cruise thing. Disney, Hawaii, Paris. Check, check, check. Nice weather, good food, bad water, big crowds. Sensory overload with a hefty price.
This year, you want to get away from all those places that promise to get you away from it all, and herd you in with everyone else seeking to get away from it all.
Well this year, I can promise you, there is a place you can do it. There will not be massive crowds...no jacked-up tourist prices...and the water is great.
And the few, normal, well-adjusted folks that you'll be sharing the week with are...wood nuts.
That's because, this summer, Penn State, the International Wood Collector's Society, and the International Association of Wood Anatomists, are inviting you, the Go Wood reader, to an event so unusual, so laid-back, so educational, and so woody, that news outlets around the world are totally ignoring it.
That event is World of Wood 2015.
But please, don't tell anyone...we want to keep this thing quiet.
