March Update
Road trip of the month...
At the end of February,we hit the road and visited Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona.  We called on many longstanding customers, and also knocked on some new doors.  And saw lots and lots of cacti!
   Tucson from A Mountain
We ended the week at a PMPA Management Conference in Scottsdale, where we attended some great sessions on sales, business growth, and leadership and connected with peers from across the U.S.  The experts say our industry is growing...but we knew that!
As much as we love to meet our customers, and appreciate how going offsite also tends to encourage more high-level strategic thinking...it's great to come home and get back to the office!
A few things we learned during our Arizona travels (with some help from our 6 year old son):

  • Arizona scorpion bites won't kill you, they'll just make you very very sick
  • El Charro Cafe is the oldest family-run Mexican restaurant in the U.S., established in 1922 (we found this very cool!)
  • It takes 100 years for a cactus, like the saguaro, to grow 25 feet, and 75 years to grow its first arm
  • Char Thai used to be a western resturaunt, and is now a Thai Cuisine with Thai battles painted into the previous western wall murals.
  • Mt Lemmon overlooking Tucson climbs to 9,157 feet above sea-level, but "A" Mountain is pretty cool, too!
