Ohio University has the same characteristics of Cornell, except Ohio makes Cornell look like it’s on steroids. So instead of walking up Libe Slope I’m walking up this miniature hill that my other friends from Texas on the Athens team think it’s the biggest hill they’ve ever climbed. They haven’t seen anything. I’ve also learned that I’ll be working with Washington County to organize people. Washington County is the next county to the right of Athens County and borders West Virginia. Marietta is its most populous city of about 16,000. Problem is it takes 1 hour to drive there, so my gas costs have just increased. Otherwise, I’m excited. I’ve already scheduled two volunteers, registered four people and set up one house meeting to discuss the promises of the Obama campaign.
