I grew up on Stan Kenton. I’ll start today’s post with his band’s cover of Route 66. This one rises to the front of the post and not the end.
I wonder how many people remember Stan Kenton’s band. I am thankful my mom had a collection of his records.
Getting ready for an event like this is a huge undertaking. The biggest job is lining up sponsors. We can use all the help we can get.
For this reason we ask for all reader’s help. If you are not in a position to sponsor the trip, read our sponsorship page, and then let us know if you have a contact name and phone number for us. For example, if you know someone at one of the big camera companies, restaurant management, hotel management, etc., we’d like a referral we can follow up on.
Better yet, if you are in a position to grease the skids for us, please let us know. Just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some talking points to share with your friend…
In return for sponsorship we are will be plugging the sponsors’ business
Our web posts will increase S.E.O. for our sponsors’ websites.
I’ll address heartbreakers and broken hearts later. Before I do that, let’s look at what else we will do on this trip.
Do you know what a Flat Stanley is?
A Flat Stanley is a child’s drawing of a guy (we call him Stanley) that travels all around the world. As he travels with his traveling companions, his traveling companions take pictures of Stanley in exotic, far away places.
