Accomplish a lot….

My father always said, “you’d be surprised how much you can accomplish when you are supposed to be doing something else.” ~ Big Jim I am living proof of that.

San Diego- Month 6… er somethin- Now heading home for a visit

To say I am overwhelmed might be an overstatement, but probably not. We’ve been on this trip for 6 months. Just the 6 of us. 4 humans, 2 dogs. It has been awesome, see Facebook posts (they must be having the time of their lives our friends say!). And it has been tough, (in a […]

Monument Valley- Mile 12,000 and somethin…

Mile 580: Belmar Village, near Franklin PA

Mile 580: Belmar Village: You can’t stay here. It is my Mom’s place on the Allegheny River, and she doesn’t have a 30 AMP hookup. So, Sorry. However, the Belmar Bridge and conjoining bike trails are thoroughly enjoyable to anyone who would like to cover some scenic miles along the Allegheny river. Rent a SUP […]
