THANKSGIVING WEEK TRIP TO THE GULF COAST
( life / travel / usa / blog )

Just getting the rental car (minivan) in the first place was a bit of an adventure. Because we were leaving Monday morning, we wanted to pick it up Sunday night, but all local Enterprise offices are closed on Sundays, which I find weird, given that travel-and-leisure... read more

FROM HILL TO VALLEY, A LONG-WINDED POSTCARD FROM THE ROAD
( life / travel / usa / blog )

The drive from Spring Hill, Tennessee to Valley, Alabama was uneventful... until we were almost there. So close. That's a fairly generic name for a town, thou... read more

VISITING OLD SACRAMENTO
( life / travel / usa )

Observations while walking around Old Sacramento with Elizabeth:Jul 14, 2018 2:38pmAs I sat on a bench in touristy Old Sacramento, a little boy walked by and asked Are you a statue? I had to laugh. There was a statue/wooden carving of a man on ... read more

S.F. IN 1906
( education / history / usa )

Things were a lot more freely-moving back then. And the kids seemed to be having fun. Reminds me of Russian traffic today, only they have slightly newer forms of transportation now. :) A film taken from a streetcar traveling down Market Street in San Francisco in 1906, a few days before the earthq... read more

TRIP TO ROANOKE
( life / travel / usa )

I'm home after a long trip to Roanoke, VA and back. It was quite an experience overall. The 1-3/4 hour drive to SMF was punctuated by the puppy screaming and howling in the crate behind me in the van. She messed the newspapers once and I stopped and changed them. Once I got to the airport, I put... read more

VISITING FAMILY IN KANSAS
( life / travel / usa )

Kansas. What an incredibly boring state. Tara, her sister Sandie, niece Destiny and I flew from Nashville to attend her youngest sister Stephanie's high school graduation in Council Grove, Kansas. Tara and I figured we'd find something to do that night upon arrival in Kansas City, followed b... read more

CHARLESTON AND SAVANNAH
( life / travel / usa )

Charleston, SCWe drove ... and drove ... and drove - 10 hours or so- from Nashville until finally reaching Charleston, South Carolina. Along the way, westopped in Asheville, North Carolina at the Biltmore Estate because Tara had forgotten toget postcards when we were there a coup... read more

NEW ORLEANS
( life / travel / usa )

We flew into New Orleans about noon time on a Friday. Since the room wasn't ready for such an early arrival, we walked four blocks to the pier and decided to ride the paddle wheel boat "Natchez." It basically goes a mile up the Mississippi, then heads back. You'll see a lot of othe... read more

CALIFORNIA, WHAT A TRIP
( life / travel / usa )

Before we left, I took Austin to his Grandma Joy's house. We had a good visit and he took to her immediately. I left him on Friday morning and drove back to Nashville. I was supposed to get my ear drums cut open for the plane ride because I had ear infections, but the steroids and antibiotics ha... read more

THE BREEDERS CUP AT GULFSTREAM PARK
( life / travel / usa / horseracing )

I flew from Nashville to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for the Breeders Cup horse races at Gulfstream Park (actually Hallandale). It was fun just being there. Southwest had given me a free round-trip ticket for some reason (I don't rememb... read more

ALASKA, A TRUE WILDERNESS
( life / travel / usa )

I've always heard people use the words "wilderness" and "Alaska" in the same sentence. It didn't mean a lot to me until recently when my wife Carla and I cruised the Inside Passage of Alaska. The state is huge, but it still takes a good seven days (round trip) to cruise u... read more

ST. LOUIS TRIP
( life / travel / usa )

Tara and I made a quick trip (if you can call a five-hour road trip quick ) to St. Louis over the Labor Day weekend. We visited their historic district ( old town ) along the river where they were hosting the Big Muddy Blues Roots Festival. That was just good timing on our part. We had not originall... read more

QUICK TRIP TO CHICAGO
( life / travel / usa )

Tara and I left Nashville for Chicago on a Thursday morning. At the last minute I decided to let my cat Myca out. I figured he would return shortly after doing his business in the neighbor's bushes, as usual, and I could then lock him in the house for the duration of our trip. When he didn't... read more

ATLANTA TRIP
( life / travel / usa )

Tara and I just got back from a long weekend in Atlanta. It was nice to see the town. I'd passed through before, but had never stopped to look. The first touristy thing we did after eventually finding our hotel - the downtown Courtyard-by-Marriott, picked out by Tara, which was... read more
