Let’s start “Where’s PJ Wednesday”. The first location to ponder is honor of the upcoming Olympics. PJ’s Junket has lead him to a previous Olympic city with many venues. Can you guess the Primary City and/or the 2 venue locations. A pic a day will be provided so that everyone can be certain of where we are. So, Where is PJ the Purple Elephant? PJ will actually show up in some of these pics. If you don’t want a Hint or the answer yet don’t scroll past the first pic.
When I was there in June there was still snow on the ground, So this was a Winter Olympic venue. Any thoughts?
Hint 3: The Skis were Alan Airborn’s and Clint Jones’ signed by Eddy the Eagle. They were displayed in Squatters Restaurant in this Venue village. The Figure skate were not labeled with a mane and the speed skates were Eric Hayden’s. Is this any help? It may be to some and you always need to eat, right?
Hint 4: This is the Ski Map of the Local Venue. Do you know this Olympic venue? If so, do you know the Central Olympic City?
Hint 5: The ski jump at Olympic Park. Does any one remember which Olympics had this logo?
Hint 6: OK, here comes a great hint. Park City, UT has this nice park setup as an Olympic reminder. They have banners marking the various Olympic sites. Can you tell me the year of the Olympics and the main city?
The Answer is: Salt Lake City, UT, 2002, Olympic Games and Park City, UT Venue.
I visited after the 10 year anniversary, so there is still a pretty good representation of events and venues. It is, however, difficult to find memorabilia. The store Olympic Spirit was shown on my iPhone, but at 7:00 pm on a Sunday during the off season, I’m thinking, it wasn’t open. I did not verify if Olympic Spirit was still in business, but I’m hopeful. Before that, I had arrived at the Ski Jump 5 minutes later than the 6:00 pm closing time. I was not alone, a couple other cars drove up while I was there, but make sure you check the times.

It has a nice museum and I truly enjoyed the experience.
