Intuit sponsored "ship trips" for members of the Quicken and Quicken.com development teams to reward us for shipping Quicken 2002 and a new version of Quicken.com in August. The trips ranged from a day at a spa to a long weekend at Yosemite or Las Vegas all the way up to a week in Hawaii. Intuit pays the same amount toward each trip, and the travelers are responsible for anything beyond that. Chris and I had been talking about going to Hawaii for a long time, and this turned out to be an inexpensive way to get there. There were about twenty Intuit employees, many accompanied by spouses or significant others, on this trip.
