This was my last night camping so I decided to have a campfire. Oh what the heck. I have not had a fire mesmerize me in a while and it was nice. Staring at a fire is one of those magical things. I can…

Slept like a rock last night and ready for the day after a nice, long hot shower. Time to head out of the KOA.  “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it” – George Santayana My first destination was not very…

September 20th, 2018


Yesterday morning I took off on the first day of my latest adventure. As usual, I’ll be delaying these posts for my privacy. I got out of the house at a decent time yesterday morning. After a few errands I hit the road and…

Say What?!?!


On my way back from Newport the other day I saw an interesting sign near Manzanita, OR on U.S. 101. I could not get a picture of it but it really caught my eye and I had to post about it but forgot to…

This Week’s Journey…


I saw this sign on a side street as I pulled into town: Yep, my training was five horrid days spent on the ocean in Newport, Oregon. Man, what a beautiful place this is. Gorgeous ocean views and lots of food choices. I came…

California Road Trip Pictures

And it Still IS Unfortunate


Well that just ain’t right. I wanted to stay around the Redwoods today but I had to abort the mission and get gone. The weather forecast around Crescent city was not very good, and actually has spread up to where I’m at now –…

This is Unfortunate


I wake up this morning to a weather report that is less than favorable to my vacation endeavors so I am going to have to make a run for it. I have to be in Tacoma Sunday so I’ll be heading straight north today…

Road Trip!!


Well, I decided to head south after my appointment this morning. I will not give you my destination because I don’t really know what it will be. I have some bucket list checkoffs to sharpen the pencil for. As I write this, I am…

ATVs and PTSD


Yesterday was both fun and interesting. Wednesday night Dave and I headed out for a 4+ hour drive to Portland, OR for certification on ATVs. The government requires certification for various things to make sure you know what you are doing, do not get…
