The American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) has asked me to speak in San Diego to attorneys and judges at its annual convention. I have spoken at ABI seminars many times. Last year in Las Vegas, I debated an attorney representing “debt buyers,” those companies that buy bad debt from banks and other lenders and then collect from folks who have defaulted on their payments.
For the San Diego seminar, instead of flying in and out, and spending gobs of money on a hotel room, my wife and I are driving out in our RV with our two dogs. We plan to stay in Sante Fe, NM, Mesa, AZ, and then San Diego. After the seminar, take a different route back to Denver, via Los Angeles, Mesquite, NV, Fruita, CO and then home.
My plan is to write about the experience–both what it’s like to drive a Class A motorhome through the southwest, and the San Diego convention. Frankly, the ABI crowd is not my crowd. It’s mostly creditor’s counsel and judges. I would never work as either. I am the token representative of Broke America.
