In other Vint news, Bob gave an all-day "Tour de Tucson” on April 25th for participants in the Arizona History Convention, an annual event of the AZ Historical Society that was held in Tucson this year. "We started at the top of Swan Road in the Catalina foothills and worked our way downhill through various interesting places and neighborhoods--an urban transect of Tucson, through "the good, the bad & the ugly”--historic sites & neighborhoods interspersed among typical strip shopping centers & suburban sprawl, arriving to Mission San Xavier @ sunset.
