This is the blog of Ken Fergason, the 2014-2015 President of the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists (AEG). This blog follows the escapades of Ken leading up to and through his year as President of AEG. There will be talk of travel, presentations, meetings, weather delays, and yes, applied geology. This is informal and interaction is encouraged. Thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own and do not represent positions of AEG or my employer.
