Here is a video of a talk I gave in St Petersberg back in October
http://youtu.be/377NEvGTvVU


The sound quality is not as good as I'd like and if I ever have any time I will add some more photos and video - and try to re sync the part of the talk when I am talking over a video that somehow that got switched around (I didn't (wasn't able to) embed the video in the PPT so a different video was swapped in its place) but the talk gives more detail of the trip then I have written.


I'm flying to Utah on Tuesday to interview John Warner, who I mention in the talk. Hopefully the interview will get me to write up my trip more completely.

Doug Johnson and I did a KidneyTalk about the trip that just went live http://www.rsnhope.org/kidneytalk-podcast/show-index/adventure-hunters-dialyzing-in-the-grand-canyon/


I think I'm Lori's most frequent guest, this is the forth time I've been on.
