It’s nestled at the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited … Continue reading »

Another Blue Ribbon Tour of Pensacola…

ANOTHER BLUE RIBBON TOUR.  You’ve already met Jon York, our friend and the one who’s made our stay in Pensacola the best it could be.  The tour he gave us today was “top of the line.” In fact it was “over the top.” The guy is something else. Just when we think he’s already outdone … Continue reading »

A trip to the beach…Corpus Christi, Texas.

FEBRUARY 9, 2015 LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT CORPUS CHRISTI. We’re planning to spend some time at the beach along the Texas Gulf Coast after we leave the Hill Country at winter’s end. But where? When it comes to great beach destinations, the state of Texas doesn’t immediately come to mind. Barbecue, yes. Bikinis, no. … Continue reading »

Exploring Escalante, Utah and beyond…

APRIL 17, 2014. I feel as if, finally, we’ve really begun our Adventure. We’re now in places neither of us has ever been in the past, doing things like off-road jeeping that typify kids in their 40’s. It’s kind of nuts and we love it.  The unfamiliarity is exciting! There are lots of organized commercial … Continue reading »

Off road with the Jeep…

  In June, we bought a Jeep Wrangler Sahara to use as our tow vehicle on the trip. It’s designed for heavy duty off-roading but is one step below the Rubicon model. I’d have been interested in that one except I’d have needed a pogo stick just to get inside of the thing! Anyway, I’ve … Continue reading »

Bisbee, Arizona

We visited the little town of  Bisbee on Thanksgiving Day. Bisbee has an interesting history. In 1877, a reconnaissance detail of Army scouts and cavalrymen was sent to the Mule Mountains to search the area for renegade Apaches. What they found instead were signs of mineralization in the mountains, specifically the presence of lead, copper … Continue reading »

Singing Wind Bookshop. Win Bundy.

NOVEMBER 23, 2013. WHAT A FIND! This little bookshop is so far the most interesting “find” we’ve made on our Journey. At the outset of my blog, I said that for me the purpose of this adventure was not just to view attractions and places, but of more importance to meet the people who live … Continue reading »
