Whadda CAVE!!!

Now that we have gone fully "barefoot", what I mean is that I no longer use tennis shoes anymore, just my Merrell Barefoot shoes; it was time for another test. As you might recall we somewhat foolishly took a 4 mile hike before we were ready, well weeks later our feet and muscles have been... Continue Reading →

Went For a Drive

You would think that two people whom travel by road as much as we do would never want to go for a drive on their day off. But the call of the Blue Ridge Parkway in early wildflower bloom was just too much. That and the $55 a pop ticket price to the Biltmore Mansion,... Continue Reading →

In My Bare Feet

If you looked at the images here before reading, you're probably wondering why I'm taking photos of shoes. Especially since I don't often promote products here.

Hopping Good Time

I mentioned that we spent Easter weekend with Josh's brother and nephew, well that also included a little egg hunt and other must do Easter activities.  Like trampoline jumping in the windy Illinois weather!  I have to say I was pretty tempted to join them. We soon got down to business and egg hunting.   Instead... Continue Reading →

Big Weekend

After that amazing show in DC we had to head back the Midwest for a wedding. So we loaded up the car and hit the road for Chicago, it's best if one doesn't not look at how far away the East Coast is when doing something crazy like this. After two days on the road... Continue Reading →

DC Again

Not So Fun Weekend
