WALKIN’ NASHVILLE

NASHVILLE or BUST

Nashville is easy. I’ve done it by motorcycle, pick-up truck, and a few airplanes, but this year Arizona snow had other plans.

I’ll keep it short. A snow storm pinned us down in Flagstaff, so with two canceled flights we made a bonsai run to Phoenix and caught another plane. Good news was we made it to Nashville; bad news was our planned Santa Fe destination was now off the table. The rerouted flights put ten hours, a couple of mountain ranges, closed roads, and a lot of snow between us and Santa Fe after our nine p.m. Phoenix landing at week’s end.

Made it to Nashville

Nashville as always was friendly, hospitable, and lots of fun. We spent the most time between Printers Alley, Broadway, and Music City Center. We stayed downtown and walked thirty plus miles (according to Lori’s Fitbit) over three days. Nashville’s energy level is high, major construction projects are everywhere, and everyone’s repairing, restoring, preserving and repurposing something… and I have to say the Music City Center is the nicest convention center I’ve experienced.

Despite all the construction it’s still easy to get around. Cranes here are about as common as Porsches in Newport Beach and pretty interesting to watch.
