New Zealand!


It has been a long time since I have posted here.  Not quite as long as previous disappearances, though long enough.  You should be excited to know that married life is wonderful and ya’ll should take part in it.  Also, New Zealand is an amazing country, and despite loosing our luggage, our honeymoon was fantastic! … Continued

360° Cuyahoga


Here’s a 360° Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  It’s not much, I did only spend half a day there, remember.  Still, it’s cool to watch and play around in.  I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of that camera!

Niagara Falls


What’s this?  Another vacation for the great webmaster?  That is correct, I am on a road trip to Niagara Falls.  It’s on the way to Chicago, where I will be spending Thanksgiving this year.  Yes, it is on the way, believe me.

Gates of the Arctic National Park


Alaska has 8 National Parks, I’ve profiled 4 so far.  Of these, they have all been within a few hundred miles of the city of Anchorage.  That makes them all pretty popular, and easy to get to for the average tourist.  Now though, we will travel north, far north, about 475 miles North of Anchorage, … Continued

Kenai Fjords National Park


Kenai Fjords National Park marks the 2nd Alaskan National Park Profile I will do for my Alaska Trip.  In terms of raw statistics, Kenai Fjords is the closest park to Anchorage, yet only the 5th most visited park in the state.  It’s comparable in size to Yosemite National Park, and was initially protected by President … Continued

I am off for a truly Epic (and you know me, I do not use that word lightly), trip to Yellowstone.  The last of what I call The Big 3 National Parks, (the others being The Grand Canyon, and Yosemite).  This is possibly the most exciting vacation I am going on.  I’ll be gone for … Continued

The Badlands


  I made it back from South Dakota, and just in time too.  Had I decided to plan my trip for the next week, I’d have been out of luck due to the government shutdown.  Well, not totally out of luck, but just mostly.  I wouldn’t have gotten my stamps, or any post cards, and … Continued

San Francisco & Yosemite


I am off to San Francisco, and more importantly, Yosemite National Park this morning.  I will be there for the rest of the week, returning on the Red Eye flight Friday night.  So expect little to no updates from me for this week. Or will you??!?!?!?! Chris could post something, but he won’t, cause he … Continued



The Windy City.  That’s where I’ve been, and why there’s been no posts recently.  Anyway, I’m back, and as soon as I go through my 1400 unread feeds, I’ll start with some more crazyness to post about.  But for now, here are some pretty pictures from my adventure. Buckingham Fountain. A little kid walked in … Continued
