THE NEXT BIG IDEA IDEA FESTIVAL in Los Alamos & the 1st Prototype of the 'JACK-CAM'

The Next Big Invention--the dog-ficial JACK CAM at the NEXT BIG IDEA Festival!

Here's the poop.....er, I mean scoop...straight from this pooch's lips.   Los Alamos New Mexico has this big scientific festival for all those Brainiacs up there at the Atomic City!  And who else but Miss Kelly of Los Alamos County comes up with an idea...Travelin' Jack will sport a brand new state-of-the-art scientific dog-scovery of a special head mounted camera....THE JACK-CAM! And I would test it out at the festival!  And then the Chamber sent me my own dog-personal invitation.  Now you tell me...how could I turn THAT invitation down....a JACK CAM?   


I'm there.....you can bet your biscuits on that one!  So NEXT BIG IDEA Festival....here I come!  

 But the night before the BIG event...I need to get my bulldog beauty rest...so I check into the very pet-friendly Holiday Inn Express in Los Alamos!  And guess what!  Manny...the evening Manager..was waitin' for me!  (seems my famous dog-personality precedes me!) 

And not only did he personally welcome me...he even had a doggie biscuit for me at the front desk!  That's all it took...as you can dog-magine! This pupparoo NEVER turns down a treat! 

                                            
Thanks Manny....Nice Welcome and a Tasty Treat!  Los Alamos Holiday Inn Express......
                                         Paws UP in my pup-inion!

                                      Now let's get to our room to put in a little RELAX TIME before the big day!
 HMMM....nice room....snazzy furnishings....AND a grand view of the canyons right out my window!  A good night's quiet rest for this workin' pup...and next morning off to the BIG event! 

But first....WOAH....stop the car! What's that I dog-spy out the window?  A DOG PARK!  Right in Los Alamos!
                                               
                                                   East Park (4 acres) 300 East Road in Los Alamos
Not only does Los Alamos have a Dog Park, but there are picnic tables, a hiking trail, a play lot..even a miniature golf course! Double Dog WoW! Being the Travel Dog Writer and Reporter that I am....I'd better check this out dog-personally!


Made a new friend right off!  Chelsea...and her dog Margo.....were there to dog-ficially welcome me to the Dog Park!


 WoW...check this out!  They even have a wading pool for pooches!  And even a water hose to get cooled down with!  Now that's JUST what every rompin' pup needs!  And check out all the green grass, the big  running area in the park.....lots of space for dogs of all sizes and shapes!  NICE JOB LOS ALAMOS! Glad to see you remember the Dogs too! 
                         But times a-wastin'...and I have to get to the NEXT BIG IDEA Festival already! 

                                                   
OKay....here we go.  Let's get this ducky dog-vention JACK CAM set up.  There's work to do. 

                                              
Not so sure this thingy-mabob camera is gonna work...Let's get it on straight wouldja please!?!  Whatever......I think we might just have been better off gettin' one of these scientific types on this job!  But let's go....gotta check out the Festival!

                                              
First things first......gotta make friends with the festival goers! Check out this sweetie pie. Her name's Elyse...and I think I'm gonna get comfy with her!  And NO I am NOT sitting down on the job.....well, maybe I am....but who could resist her....doggone it!

                                      
Think I'll check out Ashley Pond...hey little guy! Are you a Big Time Scientist too!?  Wanna be my friend pretty puleese?

Let's see what else is there to check out at the Festival?  Impromptu dancers?   But hey.....WHHAATTTT?
                                         

OH MY DAWG!!!!! I think I just dog-spied something VERY interesting!!!! Is that Albert Einstein dancing with the dames? Sure the dog-heck looks like him to me!  But then....of course...this IS a Science Fair....and of course Einstein would know that this is THE place to be for all those scientist types!  PRETTY dog-pressive if ya ask me! 
                                              
More friends....and of course Travelin' Jack never misses a chance to help out his 4-footed friends in the shelter.  So let's sell some of my books Travelin' Jack's Story...from Shelter to Star!  And we'll donate the moneys to Los Alamos Animal Shelter.  


Well, it's been a doggone grand day at the NEXT BIG IDEA Festival in Los Alamos NM!  I've made lots of new friends, enjoyed a great festival, helped out my cousins at the local shelter (we sold enough books to donate $70 to the foster kids waitin' for a forever home)...I even dog-splored Los Alamos and dog-scovered a great dog park....and found another great pet friendly hotel.....

.....BUT......no offense anyone....next year...couldja pretty please maybe get one of these Brainiac scientist types to create a REAL working JACK CAM!  Do that for me please....and I'll be BACK I dog-guarantee! 


Doggie Hugs and Slurpy Kisses!
