LinkedIn… and Rural America – Feb 2020

We just spent the last month in (mostly) rural America, driven primarily on back roads.   Upon our return home, for some unexplained reason, I logged into my LinkedIn account.  Why, you ask?  No clue – purely random.  I hadn’t logged on in memory (my blog posts do automatically post on LinkedIn – but without my… Read More LinkedIn… and Rural America – Feb 2020

Lake Havasu City (AZ) – Feb 2020

You know your unhealthy interest in fireworks is excessive if it has caused you to make a 1,500-mile trip to attend the Western Winter Blast, an assemblage of like-minded individuals who have a slightly outsized and unnatural attraction to exploding cylinder shells. Combine Woodstock (add 40 years to the average attendee’s age), the tailgating of… Read More Lake Havasu City (AZ) – Feb 2020

Las Cruces (NM) – Feb 2020

Admittedly our stop in Las Cruces was designed as a “utility” stop… do laundry, shop for food, really cool stuff like that.  Awesome you say?  Totally!  Best.  Laundromat.  Ever!  Kidding. We camped at Siesta RV Park, although “camped” would be better described as “parked”.  But as said, our goal was utility and this campground (parking… Read More Las Cruces (NM) – Feb 2020

2019 in Review – Dec 2019

Let’s just say 2019 was an unusual year, with probably the least amount of RV travel in many years. The year started with us financially supporting the medical community.  Between a skiing accident and broken bone, shoulder surgery and a hip replacement for my bride, I believe we were wildly successful.  Please feel free to… Read More 2019 in Review – Dec 2019

Christmas Caroling – Dec 2019

Chock up another year of neighborhood caroling!  Yes, the Carol Caravan made it through the hood unscathed, with much joy, many laughs and some great singing! Like any year we have done this, we start with the basics… a trailer with hay, lights (as gaudy as possible), a heavy marketing campaign (a sign), carolers, parental… Read More Christmas Caroling – Dec 2019

Kentucky Bourbon Festival – Sept 2019

You know life has gone moderately well when you spend a week in Bardstown, KY (the bourbon capitol of the world) to attend the annual Kentucky Bourbon Festival. What do you get when you mix good friends and bourbon?  In my experience, typically an arrest warrant.  Not this time.  We were on our very best… Read More Kentucky Bourbon Festival – Sept 2019

Fear and Loathing on Cape Cod – July 2019

It does not get better than driving with my good friends Raoul and Dr. Gonzo (“Don’t worry – I’ll remember your face”) down to the Cape (Cape Cod for you non-New Englanders). Our goal was to attend the annual Michael McGuire Gallery “Opening” (https://michaelmcguire.net) in P’town (Provincetown) this past weekend.   Michael McGuire, a life-long friend… Read More Fear and Loathing on Cape Cod – July 2019

Castles Made of Sand – June 2019

And so castles made of sand fall in the sea eventually Jimi Hendrix Technically, they will be removed by a bulldozer.  But not just yet.  And I guess technically they are not sandcastles.  Alright, have your way.  Check out these sculptures from this year’s Hampton Beach (NH) Master Sand Sculpting Classic! We continue our Northeast… Read More Castles Made of Sand – June 2019

North Shore Boston – June 2019

We descended on Salem, Cape Ann and Boston (MA) for what we have alternately called Our Most Fabulous Trip, or our Northeast Trip.  I think Our Most Fabulous Trip conjures up Wayne’s World.  Party on, Garth. When I say “we”, I don’t mean the proverbial Brad and Karen.  This time we are actually traveling with… Read More North Shore Boston – June 2019

Gospel Night at the Pops – June 2019

Can I get an amen?  We attended Gospel Night at the Pops inside Boston’s Symphony Hall last night.  Let me just say Hallelujah! After meeting with friends and enjoying an unbelievable dinner in Eataly at La Pizza e La Pasta (let me just say – this was SUPERB!), we walked the short distance from the… Read More Gospel Night at the Pops – June 2019

Shoulder Surgery Update – June 2019

A special thanks goes to Dr. Josh Siegel and the entire team (surgical center, physical therapy, tanning salon, latte bar) at Access Sports Medicine in Exeter, NH for the great work they did repairing and rehabilitating my left rotator cuff.  Way to go!  With every day, I’m feeling more and more like my old self,… Read More Shoulder Surgery Update – June 2019
