Default Aaand now Im in Detroit.

All in all Id rather be in San Antonio. Ill be here until Wednesday and then on to Indianapolis. Im about a block from Woodward Ave which is cool all by itself. The school I am working in was built about 12 years ago to house 2000 students, today they have 600 students. Damn. Just from driving around I can see some areas that must have been really nice in their time but these huge houses are all run down or made into apartments. Pretty sad. Oh yeah, heard gunshots last night. I dont think Im in a great part of town. LOL!

You’ve got to check out the Motown Museum a few blocks down from there, as well as the Henry Ford. Well worth the time!!

Installing Olympic style ranges in JROTC programs at the highschool. Just this one school in the city though. I was at the St Regis hotel. It was probably pretty nice in its day and they are refurbishing it at the moment. All the people I dealt with were nice.

JROTC is all run by the army for these installations. They are 10 meter air rifle ranges, 5 lanes each.
