Now that I have your attention…

Where have you been sleeping lately? I’m on the road a lot and I’ve had the opportunity recently to stay at both the Hilton and the Marriott’s newest brands targeted at, well hipsters. I’ll just say those of us with hipster kids can better afford it and you’ll find plenty of us encroaching on the […]

One Night in Tampa

If you only have one night in this city on the bay, Tampa Bay, book it for Bern’s Steakhouse. Save your pennies to splurge on this well worth the money treat and come hungry… very, very hungry. And I’m serious about having the reservation, probably at least a month out, mine was 3+ months out. […]

Winter Wonderland aka Whistler, Canada

A few days in British Columbia was just the ticket to celebrate and play in full on winter. I love everything about a great ski village, including the cold. Whistler delivers a classic experience linking three wonderful villages (Whistler, Blackcomb, and Olympic Village) together with easy, scenic walking paths. The two-hour scenic, Sea to Sky […]

Experience the Redwoods

I mean really, it’s what we went to the Pacific Northwest to see.  So many pictures, I just had to share them.  Words can’t describe the feeling, the smell, the silence of being among the Redwoods.  It must be similar to what it would feel like to be in space, looking back at earth, and […]

A Night in the Trees

Truly a magical place near the Siskiyou National Forest in the southwest corner of Oregon, the closest town is Cave Junction.  Book a night at the Out ‘n About Treesort and pick from about 15 perches to call your own for the night. Ideally, arrive before dark so you can explore the grounds before you have […]

Dreaming the nomadic dream

Digital Nomad, no such term exists in the dictionary, but that does not stop me from aspiring to be one. The world of Google has lots to say about digital nomads.  Basically, a digital nomad is someone who is not tied to a physical location for work, which generally means they need access to an internet […]
