A- Stewart’s 2014 EVENTS—SEE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE—313-922-1990
B- THE MONEY ISSUE-
All overnight trips require a $100 deposit at least 5 months in ad- vance of trip. Full payment must be made three months or more before trip. Since I have given you a schedule thru 2016 we all can plan ahead. Also, Stewart is making a record of every check, cash, cashiers check, etc. given to him. These records exist in 3 different places. So, just in case Stewart winds up in heaven before 2016, his executors will make sure all refunds are sent to the proper person. Now, on to a less grim subject.—– PARKING FOR TOURS –
Most of Stewart’s 2014 tours will leave from Eastpointe- near Nine Mile and Gratiot.* The address is 16600 Stephens Road.(48021)This is the wonderful Michigan Military Technical & Historical Museum and Society!! (Secure and safe parking lot.)
D-CANADA ENTRY INFO-

1-Valid US Passport
2-Enhanced Driver’s License($45)
3- An Enhanced Michigan ID( the last two, you obtain at Sec. of State office)
E-WHO IS STEWART?
A LITTLE ON MY BACKGROUND–I have been conducting tours of Detroit since 1968. I have lived in Indian Village since 1996, having moved there from Grosse Pointe. I graduated from MSU in 1962 with a Major in History & earned the Degree of Master of Arts from EMU in 1967. I subbed in DPS in 1963 & then taught full time in Hazel Park from 1963-1964. From 1964-1993 I taught Social Studies, coached, & was involved in many clubs at East Detroit High School (now known as Eastpointe).Teaching Humanities at WSU kept me busy from 1994-2001. In addition to teaching, and conducting tours, traveling has been one of my passions. I have now been to all 50 states, all of the Canadian Provinces, (plus Yukon) & 141 countries including 17 countries in Africa & every country in Europe, except Iceland.
