When I was 21 years old, I moved from Long Island to Las Vegas. I took an epic cross country drive and my first stop was Cleveland, Ohio. I stayed at some random Holiday Inn and don’t even remember exploring the city. I was tired and scared and excited and beyond ready to leave the… Continue reading Autumn 2021: Cleveland really does rock
Autumn 2021: Mt. Saint Helens
On our way out of Hiawatha Trail, we just had to stop at Mt. Saint Helens. I remember when this volcano blew its top back in the ’80s. What I didn’t realize is just how massive this mountain really is. Unfortunately, it was a little cloudy the day we went but we were still able… Continue reading Autumn 2021: Mt. Saint Helens
Where have we been?
Are we still traveling? Yes!! We have been super busy traveling and most places didn’t have wifi. Then things start to snowball and before you know it I have 1500 pictures to sort through and a really slow wifi connection and blogging just doesn’t sound fun anymore. But over the next few days, I will… Continue reading Where have we been?
Autumn 2021: Hiawatha Trail – Biking from Montana to Idaho
I was sitting at Walmart with our bikes mounted on the truck when this complete stranger came up and started talking to me about biking. He was an older gentleman and had just started riding and he told me about this Hiawatha Bike Trail. As it turns out this trail goes from Montana over into… Continue reading Autumn 2021: Hiawatha Trail – Biking from Montana to Idaho
Summer 2021: Glacier National Park
After Devils Tower, we spent the next three days traveling to Glacier National Park. Julie (my daughter) was working we decided to travel about three hours each night. We also spent one day, yes one day at Walmart. The Glacier is amazingly beautiful. The mountains are the biggest I have ever seen. One of the… Continue reading Summer 2021: Glacier National Park
Summer 2021: National Monument Devils Tower
I am with my daughter and her children visited the National Monument Devils Tower. While I can’t stand the name (the native Indians have been trying to get it changed), it is a neat geological oddity worth seeing. We initially were only going to head to Newcastle, Wyoming – if only just to see a… Continue reading Summer 2021: National Monument Devils Tower
Summer 2021: Theodore Roosevelt National Park
This is the old stomping ground of our former president. Even though it was raised in a wealthy family in New York he loved the “Strenuous Life,” found in North Dakota. While this has not been my favorite park we did have a nice visit. One of the things to do here is to drive… Continue reading Summer 2021: Theodore Roosevelt National Park
Summer 2021: Badlands National Park
My youngest daughter are still gone to New York (8 days total). They return to me this Saturday. I drove 60 miles over to the Badlands to camp. I will remain here until the others get back, then we will tour this area. The scenery is magnificent and it will be nice to have a… Continue reading Summer 2021: Badlands National Park
Oh, these take up so little room and are a must-have! Not just for hot dogs! When you go past a farm stand, pick up the green and or red pepper, a couple of mushrooms, a couple of Patty pan squash, cherry tomatoes, an onion, lettuce, cucumber, and an apple. At the grocery store, get… Continue reading Got skewers?
Spring 2021: Tour around Massachusetts
I traveled down through some beautiful farmland and had views of the mountains most of the way down. I went to Old Sturbridge Village and spent the afternoon walking around and seeing all there is to see there. And there is a lot! The puppies were so good, they stayed in our carriers the whole… Continue reading Spring 2021: Tour around Massachusetts
