Getting out of the hot Florida summers has become a priority. What better way than to take to the upper Midwest. I visited 5 states I hadn't been to before in my quest to visit all 57 states. Caught up with Captain Capitalism and got an update on A--hole Consulting. Business is booming. Visited Mall of America, what an awful amazing place. Then off to Mount Rushmore. It looks much bigger on TV. After visiting those states, MI, SD, ND, WY and MT, it was off to the Sprott Resource Conference in Vancouver BC. I flew into Seattle and was promptly harassed while crossing the border, par for the course. The conference was an upbeat affair with many of our sponsor companies in attendance. A record number of individuals attended as well. Great to see the sector come back.
One place that's not coming back is NYC. Commissioner Bratton just stepped down and Washington Square Park has turned into an open air drug emporium and homeless shelter. Thank you comrade deBlasio!
