Hed’n to the Wed’n – Oct 2022

We sold our house and are working our way west to Denver – hed’n to the wed’n.  Yup, our son will be getting married in November, so we are taking a slow stroll west. First stop?  See old friends (sorry, did that sound catty or judgmental?) at TCPC (Tennessee Cumberland Plateau Campground), one of our… Read More Hed’n to the Wed’n – Oct 2022

Montana: Part I – Sept 2022

After several amazing weeks in Idaho, we departed Idaho and almost immediately became enamored with Montana!  Traveling down a 2-lane road, no other vehicles in sight, we were in a “valley” (albeit at +/- 6,000 feet elevation), with massive mountains on one side that must have topped 12,000 feet, and on the other side for… Read More Montana: Part I – Sept 2022

Canopener – Jan 2022

Another successful year for the Canopener!  What is the Canopener you say?  First and foremost, it is a rally of friends and strangers-soon-to-be-friends of (mostly) Airstream owners.  It is a purely democratic event, lead and directed by ad hoc volunteers, with no rules – only, at most, a few guidelines.  It is a wonderful event… Read More Canopener – Jan 2022

Weekend at Bernie’s (TCPC) – May 2021

For some reason, this weekend at TCPC (Tennessee Cumberland Plateau Campground) in Crossville, TN, made me think of Weekend at Bernie’s.  No, there was no embezzlement, heroin overdoses, or mafia hitmen (that I know of!), although there were a few shady characters. But there was a lot of laughing.  And the weather couldn’t have been… Read More Weekend at Bernie’s (TCPC) – May 2021

Propane Generator Conversion – May 2021

Road Trip ’75 (part 3) – Mar 2021

I believe this is the last of my letters home to my parents from our cross-country trip in 1975, from Boston to Denver (the long way).  Some of our experiences from this trip are lost in the rubble, some are reflected in these letters, and some are only vaguely remembered. One such vaguely remembered incident… Read More Road Trip ’75 (part 3) – Mar 2021

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
