What's not to like about a thousand- ile bus tour taking you effortlessly to Famous Places? Better yet, every Famous Place has a gift shop before the EXIT door.
Seeing the sights can be intellectually broadening and the elaborate hotel dinners broadening as well; but it was the PEOPLE on the bus tour who were the most interesting…such as:

Cleveland Cavaliersa Championship Parade
We were offered media credentials for the historic Cleveland Cavaliers Championship Parade on June 22, 2016 but did not apply because we wanted to be part of the people celebrating rather than standing inside barricades. And we are so glad we did. Watching parade highlights later in the day on TV we were amazed at how what they showed on TV was so different from what we experienced.
TV showed fans behind barricades with the streets wide open as the parade circled the Q and Progressive Field. But on East 9th Street there were no barriers and fans converged from both sides of the street almost meeting in the middle. Mounted and other Police did their best to keep people back as the parade came down East 9th. But as you will see in the videos it was very close up and very real.

Bare Bones: I'm Not Lonely If You're Reading This Book
A touching, funny, heart-wrenching, and triumphant memoir from one of the biggest names in radio, the host of The Bobby Bones Show, one of the most listened-to drive time morning radio shows in the nation.
Growing up poor in Mountain Pine, Arkansas, with a young, addicted mom, Bobby Estell fell in love with country music. Abandoned by his father at the age of five, Bobby saw the radio as his way out—a dream that came true in college when he went on air at the Henderson State University campus station broadcasting as Bobby Bones, while simultaneously starting The Bobby Bones Show at 105.9 KLAZ. Bobby’s passions were pop, country music, and comedy, and he blended the three to become a tastemaker in the country music industry, heard by millions daily. Bobby broke the format of standard country radio, mixing country and pop with entertainment news and information, and has interviewed some of the biggest names in the business, including Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, and Jason Aldean.
Yet despite the glamour, fame, and money, Bobby has never forgotten his roots, the mom and grandmother who raised him, the work ethic he embraced which saved him and encouraged him to explore the world, and the good values that shaped him. In this funny, poignant memoir told in Bobby’s distinctive patter, he takes fans on a tour of his road to radio. Bobby doesn’t shy away from the curves he continues to navigate—including his obsessive-compulsive disorder—on his journey to find the happiness of a healthy family.
Funny and tender, raw and honest, Bare Bones is pure Bobby Bones—surprising, entertaining, inspiring, and authentic.
