Where I've been and where I'm going: Qatar, France, Belgium, and San Francisco

Between losing my phone in August and changing jobs in September, I fell behind on observations and haven't managed to catch up yet! I also haven't been able to spend nearly as much time on iNaturalist lately, but I try to check in at least once a day to keep up on notifications.

Really this is just a quick post because I'm going to be in Paris and Brussels at the end of the month and I'd love to meet up with other iNaturalists if the stars align. Tagging a few people at the top of the leaderboards for France and Belgium (and a couple of others of you who I "know" a little better) just in case anyone will be in Paris on 27-29 Nov or Brussels on 30 Nov: @guille @fabienpiednoir @zanskar @tkoffel @annetanne @purperlibel @speedy @jakob @dhobern @kcopas

Then in December, I'll be at the American Geophysical Union meeting if anyone wants to meet up at that. Sounds like there will be several sessions on citizen science. Unfortunately I am going to be so tied up at AGU that I really won't have much time to explore the bay area, but of course I'll try to get in a visit to iNaturalist.

Last month I visited Qatar and met some nice naturalists (and of course did some iNaturalist evangelizing!) but I haven't had a chance to post my observations yet. Oh, except this myna I posted when demonstrating how the app works.

There's more travel in 2017 but I'm not sure where and when yet, beyond the Citizen Science Association meeting in Minneapolis May. Visitors welcome in DC—had the pleasure of meeting @eraskin when he passed through DC and looking forward to meeting @bouteloua when she comes in January! I love meeting more of this social network in real life.
