Friday I gave the inaugural bus tour for the start-up company I’m working with.  Giving away complimentary tickets, we managed to fill the bus and hit the road!  At Papago Park, we hiked up to Hole-In-The-Rock.  This sandstone formation was formed 6-15 million years ago — supposedly by water erosion flowing from a taller hill.  Our group  really enjoyed this hike, and it was a fine break right at the halfway mark of the tour.

We have a lot of challenges ahead before we can reasonably open for business — I’m hoping January. In the meantime, I’ll be backing off the project to a few hours per week so I can resume a bit of normalcy.  I plan to get back to the gym, do some more sightseeing, and spend more time with Kitten.

    Hey, if you do another free tour, I’d love to go. I’d even be your photographer, if you need some picks of you giving the tour. The hole in the rock is a nice place to stretch the legs.

      Thanks Pat! Hey want to ask you…where did you hear/see the Elks Lodge is the former POW camp? I e-mailed them but haven’t gotten confirmation yet…

        It’s the one on Oak Street, just west of 64th street. I don’t remember who told me that. I’m sure it was online somewhere. The building was part of the camp that was south of Oak where the archery range is now. They used to have other buildings that were POW housing. Not sure where they are now. For a while they were stored on the empty lot next to McDonalds at Thomas and Scottsdale. You can still see the concrete pads. The AZ Historical Society owns them now.

    Thanks Pat. May take you up on the photography offer. We should be firming up our VIP tours for some of the local merchants — which should be early January. I could probably save you a seat…
