|The eclectic decorations in my office.|
In the first post for 2016, I noted that even though the new year was not quite a week old, it was already shaping up to be a most interesting year. Well, that trend continues and as a result, I am looking toward the coming months with just a bit of dread and a great deal of eager anticipation as well as excitement. There is also that frustrating apprehension akin to that which makes it difficult to drive after a rather severe accident.
I should note that it looks as though we may have a sell out for the presentation, but a few tickets are still available. Contact Jamie Taylor at Just Marketing, (928)530-2056 for tickets and information.
Added incentive to move these projects forward came with the release of the first podcast from the duo at Fading Nostalgia, Chris and Katie. I do not want to compete but to emulate, as their projects, including the excellent podcast, as with the endeavors of Roamin’ Rich Dinkela, encourage people to explore, even if it is just vicariously.
To ensure that boredom is kept at bay, at least through January, another publisher approached me about an interesting project. At the end of yesterday’s conversation, for reasons that allude me, I agreed to provide an outline and proposal – by next Friday.
There is also a need to address inquiries about my availability in the coming months. The armchair tour of Route 66 presentation may become a road show.
After months of discussion, planning, and false starts, the tour packages that include special room rates, breakfast, and other perks are available at Ramada Kingman. In addition to a walking tour of the historic district with me as a guide, they have packages for Chillin on Beale, and for Grand Canyon Western Ranch as well as Grand Canyon Caverns and Grand Canyon West Resort, home of the world famous sky walk.
Yes, indeed, it is shaping up to be a most interesting year. And we are just getting started with plans to attend the European Route 66 Festival in Germany this coming July.
