Birthplace of the Scootcommute

Few people know the birthplace of the ScootCommute.

That's because I was, until this very second, the only person to know the birthplace of the ScootCommute.

The ScootCommute was conceived, like so many other conceptions, in a hotel room.

To be more specific, in a very nice room at the Fairmont Palliser hotel in Calgary, on March 28, 2010.

I happened to be there on Monday and it struck me that I had returned to the scene of the crime.

So there you have it.

In Calgary? Of all places? March 2010 was the month when I moved from Calgary to Vancouver... yet still we got to meet.

Sonja, the world is a very small place. I hope we get another opportunity to meet.

Deb said...

Would you care to elaborate? LOL

Was it an easy natural birth or were meds involved?

I think a lot of things were born in Calgary, but none come to mind except the Stampede.

I haven't been there in years. My mom lived there for a few and Edmonton for a few and we used to go visit her, usually in winter, brrrr.

Let's see Deb... I had nothing better to do, I had two or three hours to kill, there was nothing open on the Stephen Street Mall, I had a computer, WiFi, a strong desire to conceive a blog, piece and quiet, a queen size bed (all to myself) and, as it happens, just enough IT skills to pull it off.

Now if I was a moto guy instead of a boring scooter commuter guy, I might have used those resources in a whole other more interesting way... but I might not be blogging about it.

Brandy mainly there's a lot of guy stuff that was born or raised in Calgary: cowboy gear, pick up trucks, and the Palomino Smokehouse. You know the Palomino was conceived by guys, because they have beer, ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and bacon-wrapped corn on the cob so that you get your veggies.
