When you book inspections in Asia, make sure you allow your self two hours to get there and back, even if it’s a couple miles away…:shock:
Keep in touch!
Originally, there were actually 9 delegates and one interpreter but if you look at the PIC http://www.nachi.org/china2007.htm there are only 6 left. Bill ate 3 of them . He and I love Chinese food… he just takes it a little too far sometimes. We aplogized to the Chinese government.
I ate the interpreter for dinner: http://www.nachi.org/fatnick.htm
You promised not to tell anyone that-
Well it is not hard to see who is the tall fat balding guy, who is not part of the chinese delegation.
Seriously it was an honor to meet with these indivduals, and during our several hour meeting/ visit, I hoped they learned more about how business is done in this end of the world. They truly seemed pleased.
I was impressed that it was during an ice storm and the called 5 minutes after the appointment time, called and apologized for not being on time. 2 main highways closed and they apologized for arriving several minutes late. That is class.
They were very articulate, and had very genuine questions, as well as a desire to learn more.

Well, I know I am under the 550 mark!
Posts or pounds?
tall, fat, balding and well to do ain’t so bad…but you are a few hundred pounds off- you over bid
however after the quick snack of the small village may change the scales
Back to a serious note: They were very cordial, and they left for China with Merrell Institute Mugs, t-shirts and pens- all made in China by the way
and shortly after the picture was taken just to show the Chinese how fast the Americans are the final six were eaten as well in one sweeping motion called the “Bill Merrell Affect”
Mick: It’s effect not affect…but close enough- Howdy!
Speaking of “Howdy” I bet you’d look pretty darn cool in a neat cowboy hat.
