A New York Sunday

What a day. Steps Sunday topped out over 29k. Many miles added to feet already in bad shape. Any more than 3 nights here and I might hurt myself. Kicking myself now for not taking advantage of the quiet midtown yesterday morning by renting a bike. Way more activity at 5:30am Monday. The park closed…

Road trip and NYC

Ok, so I was wrong earlier when I said I’d be writing from Bryant Park this morning. Would you believe it was closed!? Why would a park close? I was a little disappointed to say the least. So now I’m over at Times Square between 42nd and 43rd. And who would think that would ever…

June 5, 2019 A Day to Remember, Columbus, OH

Colton and I were only gone 30hrs for our Columbus road trip, but it was a perfect success and I don’t think we could have had a better time. We took the direct route and went US 50 and US 33 East. The drive wasn’t much more than 3hrs. We knew that going in, but…

New England Road Trip 1999

“We traveled long, we traveled hard.” Hootie and the Blowfish, 1998  June 18th, 1999  The day began with the same nervous excitement that initiates most of our trips.  Though we knew when we hit the road that this trip was by far the largest undertaking yet.   It was a beautiful day for driving and that we…

The day by day link is to my daily posts from the ship, the review itself is below that: Holiday sailings can be expensive but reasonable rates do surface from time to time apparently.

Friday – Maryland Posted on December 21, 2018 by spridlewv Well, look where we ended up tonight, Frederick, Maryland. After much discussion, we decided this afternoon to bail and head east early.

Georgia/Florida Line 11/18/2017

Perfect weather, perfect scenery, perfect morning walk. We didn’t even come close to scratching the surface of what Savannah, Georgia has to offer, but to say we were impressed is an understatment. I was up at 6 putting a dent in the coffee and fruit available at the hotel, walking along the river at sunrise and…
