Schlepp Visits Oak Ridge

Its been a couple months since Travel Schlepp had any traveling to write about. This past week, though, he was in Oak Ridge, TN visiting Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Here we are inside the ORNL conference center. There we were instructing over a dozen students in the nuances of on-site inspection under the International Nuclear Safeguards Additional Protocol.

When we flew back to ABQ, we left from the nearby Knoxville airport. In the main hallway leading to the security checkpoint, there are beautiful waterfalls that fill the area with the sound of tumbling water. There's also a couple of Tennessee black bears soliciting donations for black bear habitat. Schlepp of course took some time to chat.
