March 10th, 2018


Didn’t sleep very well last night. You know that trouble you have getting a good night’s sleep when you are in a hotel or a new place. On top of that I heard a damn dog barking – even without my hearing aids in….

Change of plans. I loaded up the truck right after work and made a run for it. The weekend is supposed to be nice all over and it will be busy on the roadways. It was actually pretty busy tonight on the way here…

Europe – Day 11 – February 4th, 2018: Antwerp, Belgium to Amsterdam, The Netherlands


We got some pretty good rest last night and headed out around 9. When we got to the station it was right on time to catch our first train of the day to go to Amsterdam, and to finish the trip a train change…

Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany


Last night we decided that our next destination would be Köln (Cologne), Germany after some recommendations from the girl who helped us yesterday and my friend Kevin, who had been there before. We got up this morning and decided to skip going into central…

Europe – Day 8 – February 1st, 2018: Brussels, Belgium to Luxembourg


Our hotel was in a central area near downtown so the train stops were not very far apart for where we wanted to go. The area we were in was very interesting to see in the daylight. Most of the buildings were not what…

Europe – Day 7 – January 31st, 2018: London, England and Brussels, Belgium


That’s right…back to the Continent today. We got up and went back to the bakery I went to yesterday and grabbed a fresh croissant with ham and cheese, coffee, and another piece of raspberry torte. Our train was not until this afternoon so we…

Today I started moving stuff into my apartment. I got cut short on time a little bit because of the heat. I also had to take my truck in to get some brake work done on it. Grinding seems to have developed in the…

Im getting ready to get back on a plane to head back home. It was a great trip though it was only for about 32 hours. Chelsea and Rowan held out long enough for me to be in town so that was cool. I’m…

9lbs. 15 oz.


Well, the newest addition to the family has finally arrived! Rowan is her name. And yes, you read that weight right in the title. Just one ounce shy of 10 pounds. After sleeping two hours or so last night during my travels and struggling…

Post #250!


I write this post, my 250th, sitting in John Wayne Marina watching Sequim Bay bask in the last few minutes of calm and sunset on a beautiful but windy day. A few Canada geese are back and on the water, passing through on their…

September 27th, 2012


I started doing some work around the Refuge today helping out with various projects and moving some of my belongings to the cabin. It feels a little odd to be moving into someplace after spending so much time preparing to move out of the…

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…
