It's that time of the year, folks. That glorious time when all undergraduate geography classes around the country are canceled for an entire week as their instructors descend upon a chosen city to partake in all things geographic. All three members of the Floatingsheep team will be in Washington, DC this week for the Annual Meeting of the Association of Geographers, where we'll be presenting our research - some related to this blog, some not so much.
