We three share that, then, you and Diane and I, re balance. She is better at it..
My problem is primarily paving, me the retired landscape architect, specifier and approver, or not, of paving contractors' work for decades..
It's sort of like retribution for any past design sins. On the other hand, Albuquerque is especially odd, and I've been to lotsa places. I think we agree on that, particularly re signage. Re paving, some parking lots are fine and dandy, and some are tricky paving puzzles. I've done some shopping center paving design, and lots of parking design, so I get the hows, but that's not recent.
One of my own bicycle trips was when I went crazy and bought a Motobecane, and then attached it to my rusty old Fiat convertable for a trip down into Baja. I made it through the TJ streets with the car and bike, back and forth. I'm familiar, somewhat, with TJ, friends with family there, but I look back on that as one of my dicey moves.
