Our 2014 trip to Oregon, we’ve now done it for three summers running, was a big one. Gone nearly two full months, we left in the Jeep and returned with the Jeep and an R-pod trailer. There were many highlights from our two months away, these are just some of them. Adventures listed, of course,Continue reading “A Trip to Oregon… and Back Again”
29. I’m thankful for travel. I’m lucky enough to have been a few places. K and I love to experience a new place; the people, the smells, the tastes, the culture, a window into the way people live their lives. We love this. I’ve loved it since I was young and our family headed outContinue reading “Thankful Everyday – Day Twenty-Nine”
Ah road trips, how I love them. The sights, the experience, the music played along the way. They are glorious things. When I was a kid our family did road trips all the time. It was sort of our thing. We mostly stayed in Oregon for these, though we did venture out to Arizona once,Continue reading “Oregon Odyssey – Day Seven & Eight”
What follows are some shots, mostly taken by Karen, during our road trip east. It was a tiring four days, but we got er done… as they say. We were so lucky to have Mom and Sandy along to help out. They were amazing and true champs! People say this all the time, but inContinue reading “Better Late Than Not At All”
We got into Urbana last night after a LONG day of driving with enough time to find a branch of our Illinois bank and make a deposit, give Kev a mini driving tour of the cities, and have a cup of custard at the Custard Cup. No time left to upload photos and blog aboutContinue reading “Posts Coming”
It’s day three and here we are, safely ensconced in our hotel room in Hays, Kansas. It’s been a hell of a day. Started off pretty nice up in the Rockies, had a wonderful lunch time visit with a new old friend (Jan, it was lovely to meet you and put a face to allContinue reading “Rifle, Colorado to Hays, Kansas”
Mom got here yesterday and then took Karen to the airport this morning. I didn’t blog yesterday… I haven’t been feeling that well. Probably a combo of things… I’m stressed about Karen leaving, and I have been running a low grade fever on and off since yesterday. We contacted the powers that be at oncologyContinue reading “Winging Her Way to England”
Here’s the deal… when a person travels even occasionally, enough to have done it a few times and get a routine down, you… well… get a routine down. Ours goes something like this… paperwork readily available, backpack stocked with headphones, movies, laptop, ipods, and reading material, stop just before security but after you check yourContinue reading “How to Travel in Style”

The Foot, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Well, after a fairly easy time of it in Atlanta today, except for the hour long flight delay at the airport, we jumped on a plane and hopped over to Philadelphia. Ah… Philadelphia… I’m sure we’ll love it here. After all, it’s the seat of freedom and there’s soContinue reading “The Foot”

Leftovers, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I already used this same photo at image – ination, my 365 blog, but I liked it so much (plus I haven’t really gone anywhere today) I thought I’d use it here too. If you look closely you can see something written on the pizza box… those are lyrics toContinue reading “Leftovers”
We didn’t do much on Wednesday, January 2 when we were in Las Vegas this last week. Why you ask? Well… initially Karen had to work a bit, so Linda and I decided to go to a movie. We saw National Treasure: Book of Secrets… and it was entertaining. Afterward we went and picked upContinue reading “January 2 – Las Vegas”
