I started with an insanely short trip from DC to Orlando and back, less than 18 hours on the goround in Florida. I made it back from Orlando for an important staff meeting the next morning.
|The next evening I went to Detroit for a memorial service on Saturday afternoon. |
I had never seen the Renascence Center from the ground, it was built after I left Michigan. Impressive, in fact lower Woodward Avenue is very alive and very nice.
The following morning at 7:25 AM I was on my way to Arizona (in First Class.)
Downtown Old Scottsdale Arizona, lots of fun overpriced shops.
|I had dinner with Dr Spo and Someone in Scottsdale, it was great fun. When you are passing through Phoenix you should buy Spo dinner.|
|Dinner was in a nice neighborhood, I passed this on the way back to my rented Nissan.|
|I got away for a day in the dessert and mountains. I love the landscape.|
|The last night in Scottsdale I had a delightful dinner at a place that has the finest selection of high quality bourbons, outside of my house.|
From Phoenix I went onto a conference in Newport Beach California. The local garden club or something like that was having a luncheon at the hotel - that is two Bentleys, two Range Rovers and a Fisker Revero - an all electric car (the base price is something like $130,000.) Nice neighborhood.
Lastly, I changed planes in Chicago on my way home, one of the most iconic works of airport architecture in the United States.
What is the most back-to-back traveling you have done?
