Day One – September 10, 2012


Sorry it has taken so long to start this blog. I have had no good WiFi connection on the road until now to get this set up plus some nights I had no amenities - I was in a steel tent "roughing it" as it were. I will post each day that I already have … Continue reading Day One – September 10, 2012

Today is a cooking day. The weather is nice and cool, but it is supposed to warm up quite a bit in the next week so I need to get it done soon.

My plans to … Continue reading July 3rd, 2018

I awoke this morning, much like the rest of the world, to the shocking news that Anthony Bourdain had died. Bourdain's shows really sparked something inside, and I could even say he inspired me to not only take some chances and try new foods here in this country, but also to travel and experience the … Continue reading June 8th, 2018
