Many, many, many moons have passed since the New York Times write-up and I’m still getting in requests for walks from one or two people, none of them for the same day. Sorry. I don’t do walks each and every day, never have — if I’m leading a tour on a Wednesday it’s because some group or high roller has arranged it. If people want to shell out the big bucks, like Sam Spade my services can be bought.
But as I detail on my groups by appointment page, hauling into town on a weekday for one person for $20 wouldn’t even cover gas and parking. If you plan on coming to San Francisco, then also plan to stay over on a Sunday, give me at least a month notice, and if nothing gets in the way I’ll toss on a walk where anyone can show up at noon for $20 each and take my chances on attendance.
This month anyone who wants to show up at noon clutching a $20 with four hours to kill is welcome to join in on walks set for Sunday May 7 and Sunday May 28.
After that, people have requested a just-show-up tour for Sunday June 11, so consider that on, with others to be added as they fall into place. . . .
