5 Years Post Retirement – Mar 2019

It doesn’t seem possible, but at the end of this month (technically a month later for Karen) we will have been retired for 5 years!  What the hell have we done? Retirement, for those uninitiated, is when you shovel your driveway down to bare pavement two hours after a major storm.  Being anal retentive helps.

November in New England – Nov 2018

More accurately, this post could have been labeled “Everything Within 5 Miles of our House”. OK, so we haven’t done a lot of traveling in the last few months.  Well, except for moving 1,200 miles north.  So this post is really more about our November. The Airstream is winterized and tucked away in our yard for… Read More November in New England – Nov 2018

Alaska (2) Nabesna Road – June 2017

Nabesna Road.  I am beginning to think we may suffer from visual overload on this trip. Driving south from Tok, AK, we arrived at the northern portion of the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. I will be honest – I had never heard of this national park before arriving.

Concrete Canoe (SC) – June 2015

Go Huskies! Our son Drew and the Michigan Technological University (Michigan Tech) team participated in the National Concrete Canoe Competition this past weekend. Sponsored by the ASCE (American Association of Civil Engineers), the competition was hosted at Clemson University in Seneca, SC. Michigan Tech’s boat was named Talvi Sielu, which I am told means Winter… Read More Concrete Canoe (SC) – June 2015
