So my faithful followers, as many of you know, I am in Green Bay, WI right now interning at Schneider National. It's great! I have come to really appreciate the transportation business. I work in operations at the corporate building center located in Ashwaubenon (just south of Green Bay) . It's a lot of work-14000 drivers to operate! With the economy receding like it is, budgets are tightening up. Most of my projects deal with how many pennies can I pinch out of unnecessary purchases and developing better practices processes to save the company money. Trucking is dependent on the business's for whom it hauls freight, and with many of these companies experiencing financial woes of their own, Schneider needs to be (and in my opinion is) on top of their game. Great company!
Enough about me! Unfortunately I have been alone out here-sans Chelsea. But this week she came to pay me a visit! We had a fantastic weekend. She flew in on Thursday and left Sunday. It was a short visit, but we had a blast!
On Thursday we got settled in our hotel-The Kress Inn. It's located right across the street from my dorm (yes I am staying in a dorm room! St. Norbert College). Thursday was her birthday, so we went out to a nice restaurant. Friday I had to work, but dropped Chelsea off at the local shopping mall. I got off work early so we could have more time to hangout. We went to go see the movie UP in 3D. It was a good movie, though wasn't as exciting as the last movie I saw-STAR TREK!
Saturday was our big adventure day. We drove all the way to the top of Door County, which is the peninsula that separates the Green Bay and lake Michigan. We stopped of to see the sights. It was very pretty and sooooooo hot and humid! We found a nice little town-Sister Bay-and went swimming. It was cold, but felt so good. Now I can say I took a dip in the Green Bay! We drove up the Green Bay side and then back down the lake Michigan side. We also stopped to have a picnic and found a minature golf course to play on! It was a close game, but I won!
