Field Report: Brainerd Regional Office from Extension Quick Bytes on Vimeo.
Karen Matthes and I visited the Brainerd Regional Office a couple months ago, and here's our report from the field! We had so much fun, met so many people, and took so much video!
Miles Traveled: 260 mi, round-trip
Time on road: 4 hours 25 minutes, round-trip
Tech Team Members: Amy and Karen
Number of times Karen's camera work will make you sick: probably twice
I gotta tell you, Brainerd knows how to hostess with the mostess! We were treated like visiting royalty! Thank you Brainerd! We did a grab-bag tech training based on some topics they had identified, plus a technology Q/A, and an informal listening session on what the tech team could do better. And we had a blast doing it! Things you may not know about Brainerd Regional Office: they have an office Cantina, they have a food truck (or at least one they can visit), they are located adjacent to the county jail, they have a secret tunnel, and their office windows have astounding views. Watch the 4-minute video above to catch up on all our antics and adventures as we report from the field!
