Unfinished Business

Tonight (Tuesday) finds me back in Tempe putting the other bookend on the this trip. I am staying in the same hotel that I stayed in last week, and I once again visited Four Peaks Brewery for dinner. As I sat in Four Peaks tonight I had a strange feeling. It seemed as if I had been sitting in there just last night or the night before, and not five nights ago.

Tomorrow I will head back to Mesa in the morning to try and reshoot one of the the photos I took last week, attempt to take a “big cactus” shot (which I cannot believe I haven’t shot yet) and then make my way to the airport.

While on the flight back to Atlanta I will be writing my impressions of this trip for as long as the airline will allow me. I’ll be making my return to coach class, so I will need to do something to pass the three-plus hour flight away. I will try to provide a summary and then a detailed blurb for those who like to skim.

I stumbled up a family-run carnival while I stayed in Williams, Arizona last week.

The Scrambler With Motion Blur

I was smart enough not to ride any of the rides myself because I don’t trust the carnies at family-run carnivals.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – saddened slightly that the trip is coming to an end
Current Music – Adam Curry’s “Daily Source Code” from Monday
Website Of The Day – resumes tomorrow.
Exercise (b)Log – eight miles of hiking in Sedona lugging all of my camera gear
Mode Of Transportation To Work – none

May Goals
1) Lose two pounds. (starting weight 200 lbs)
2) Exercise at least five days per week.
3) Read two books, specifically
3a) “722 Miles: The Building of the Subways and How They Transformed New York”
3b) “The Evolution Of Useful Things…”

    I hope to see pics of Sedona soon. Probably tops on my list of places I want to visit again. Nice shot to the carnival ride- just the right amount of stopped action and motion.

    Travel safely, coach boy.

    You know, I have this book. One of those “coffee table books,” that instead of saying all these glamourous things about American towns actually is all about the “Worst Cities in America.” They list Phoenix/Tempe/most any Arizona town in there.

    Just that it’s dry and not catered toward visitors. It does mention the cactus gardens and FLR home…but basically also says: “if these cities are on your agenda? spend your vacation and money elsewhere.” (okay, paraphrasing so I shouldn’t quote…but still.)

    Your thoughts, now being there? (Yes, I’ll show you the book!)
