Look Dad, a Pirate

When we were hiking a few weeks ago a little boy got excited when Josh walked by. Look Dad, a Pirate!!!


I’ve been away from the blog for a while, but not off the road. Our schedule has been a bit nuts lately, hitting lots of locations. It is not going to slow down either so I’ll share a bit with you and hopefully update the calendar this week.

We are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area this week with stops all over the place. Next week is a bit slower for work with just two stops around Kansas City but we have decided to make it a bit tighter by adding a visit to my hometown over Easter weekend.

Song of the Week: Young Dead Men by The Black Angels.  This song is featured on the True Detectives soundtrack, a show Josh and I are into.

Recap: This week was jam-packed with fun fun fun!!!!  We had a few days off and chose to spend them in Southern Utah visiting Zion NP, Bryce Canyon NP and Kodachrome SP.  It was also a week full of visits not only did we see my Aunt in Phoenix but we dropped in on come Scottie friends who live near Salt Lake City.  This week was not all good however, in preparing for our hikes we discovered that the cover for Josh’s backpack had leaked and everything inside has horrible mildew.  We are still trying to get it all cleaned but a few things just couldn’t be saved.  You can bet there will an REI visit in Denver.

All The Fun Stuff

Over the last few weeks we have been able to attend some really fun events, the Highland games, the travel show, a couple of bands playing. Being in the right place at the right time seems to come in waves. Last year we missed a number of things by a week. Right now we are having luck or maybe I am just finding more to do. It’s been a blast to hit all the fun stuff this year. It is one of the perks of traveling this much, of moving around every few weeks. After six years we have been to most of the highlighted places different areas have to offer, at least the ones that appealed to us. Now we are finding a different way to fill our time off.

The way things are going I’m already looking forward to next unique event.

***This is part of a series of posts called “Travel Tuesday“, each covering topics unique to our lifestyle***

This week we are heading to Tempe, AZ and Utah.  We have a few days off later this week and plan to spend it in the wonderful National Parks that cover Southern Utah before heading up to Salt Lake City.  Next week will be in the Salt Lake City area but we will soon be back to San Diego then Las Vegas.
