Only in the heartland

I often get teased about my colorful Midwest language. I was in my home state of Nebraska last week and I heard a new one that I’m still laughing about. I can’t wait to slip this one into ‘polite’ conversation when the time is right. “He’s more crooked than a dog’s hind leg.” This one […]

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 […]

This 100+-year-old inn is the perfect spot to make home-base to explore the wilds of Northern California, both ocean side […]

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. […]

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 […]

Embrace Winter? Bring it On.

If you can’t beat ‘um, join ‘um right? So, with most of the U.S. thawing from the latest polar vortex, this nomad headed North, to the great Pacific Northwest to be exact.  With flights to Vancouver, British Columbia hovering right around $300, it seemed like a bargain.  Watch the ticket prices and be ready to […]

Let’s Talk Digital Nomads

Well first, let’s define what it means to be a digital nomad? Like most things, you have to think about what it means to you.  And I have and I’ll share it with you.  So, the digital part means being electronically connected.  It’s difficult to disconnect completely these days and many wouldn’t want to even if […]

The Coastal Redwoods – Day Two

This turned out to be my favorite day for Redwoods – the stretch from Cave Junction, Oregon down to the town of Klamath, California on the Pacific Ocean and the Klamath River.  Next time, I think I’ll spend a week right here. There are hiking trails for all levels, including those only requiring a few […]
