Since when is it a sin to enjoy your job?
There's a lot of chuckling going on around the office as we drop a hint here and there regarding next year's record expansion project.
Sometimes, even more information is uncovered internally as the days progress. (In other words, I head over to the Main Office and ask some questions.)
For example, I just found out that the Snowy White Gravel Road is actually an access road to get supplies back to Bahari.
It'll be mighty handy in the coming months, as the Snowy White Gravel Road is into multi-tasking.
Rich Davis, at the Evansville Courier & Press, grilled me hard last Friday, trying to unravel the mysteries woven throughout the HoliBlog.
And WTVW-TV called a bit ago; they're doing a story for this evening's newscast.
This is fun.
So much fun, in fact, that we're delaying the announcement.
No, not because we want to — we've hit a scheduling snafu and need to make the announcement a bit later than the originally planned June 16. (Sorry!)
On Friday, Rich asked if it made me nervous — would all this hype end up causing a big let down at some point. After all, in the past we've always been buttoned-up tight until our announcements (usually held in the fall months).
This truly has been an adventure into uncharted waters.
I must admit, I'm a worrier. My mind constantly shouts, "What if?!"
Mrs. Koch and I laughed about this the other day. That advice, "Don't sweat the small stuff. It's all small stuff," doesn't work with our personalities.
With us, it's all big, huge, hairy stuff. (Although "stuff" could surely be replaced with a more properly descriptive word.)
But of this I'm certain. Folks who love Holiday World & Splashin' Safari will be absolutely enamored with our expansion plans.
