Click Here to download ERS-2013-06-26 #337 Good to be back once again from travels and I have to say it was really nice to see those of you who attended the Elevator U Conference in Ames Iowa. I’m always amazed at the stories and information that is shared in a very open manor. I think that this is how our entire industry should work. I’m lucky enough to be part of Elevator U and truly enjoy those who not only support the organization but those who work behind the scenes. Tonight is the Chicago Cruise benefiting the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation and while the weather has not looked good the last two days I’m crossing my fingers that the rain will stay away. I can’t wait to see those of you who are attending the event. It is by the way sold out which is a first for the event which means we will look for a new, bigger boat next year.

Click Here to download ERS-2013-04-03 #329 Back from a short trip on vacation with family, it was nice to get away and into some warmer weather for a little bit. There are quite a few articles worthy of a read on the show today as well as for sharing so make sure you do so. We have our prize pack giveaway this week and will attempt to discuss the idiots who have come up with the idea of helicopter escalator riding. There will most likely not be a show next week as I’ll be traveling to Boston to present at the MESA meeting. I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone out there. Support your local elevator association, get involved. It’s a great way to find out what’s going on in the local and state level. Visit www.mesaassoc.com for more details.
Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!

The last show of the month and our prize pack giveaway! Instead of giving away $100 I’m actually going to give away a Coffee Gift pack from Backroads Coffee in Hayward Wisconsin. I headed up there this weekend for a short get away with my oldest two boys and we had a great time. As those of us here in the United States celebrate the Fourth of July and a nice three-day weekend I suspect that many of you are headed out on the road and on vacation enjoy yourself.
We’ve got a fun show today, one of my million dollar ideas is actually came to light today as there’s a story on a solar-powered elevator designed in London. I ask all of you the same question…..why not? Will this be the future of where our industry heads? Will wind powered elevators be next? Again I ask the question, why not? I’ll also provide a brief recap of last weeks Chicago Cruise that had a great turn out despite the weather. Have a great rest of the week and weekend everyone! Thanks to some great goodies from the following companies.
