A Year in Review 2013

While I took a few months off from writing, writing on this blog, we did not take off time from traveling.  This year was a wild one with more coast to coast jumping than we have done in years.  Trying to manage two different projects and keep up with school with a huge challenge.  I decided the best way to survive was to cut something, so this is what got eliminated.  I place to come back and begin writing again to share our crazy life again.  I like to start the New Year with a look back at what we did last years so below are some fun facts about what we did in 2013.  If there is something you are curious about feel free to ask and I will add it.

Countries Visited: New Zealand and Canada

States Visited: 35 states plus Washington DC.  We visited Hawaii this December leaving only Alaska for us to complete all 50.

Miles Driven: 65,000

Nights in a Hotel: 314

Tours: Rohde & Schwarz Technology Tour and Animal Connection by The Smithsonian Institute.

Best Location: Shedd Aquarium with Animal Connections

2012 in Review

Our trip to middle earth is now over and return with relaxed minds, tans lines, countless gigs of video and photos to edit, and wonderful memories. With so many places on the globe to see it’s hard say that you would repeat but I’m sure we will go back. It’s like no where else on earth.

We are going straight back to work after this, just a couple days in Detroit to load up the truck for another long tour year. The only breaks we will get this year are ones that we schedule with time off. However, boy are we going to make some miles. The first few months will include Kansas, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and Glorious California. This means I’m chasing the sun and getting to visit some places we usually have to skip.

This seems like a good time to share a few of the stats from last year.

Miles: More than 60,000

States: 42 (knocking two off of my “never been to list”)

Countries: 3 (Canada, Mexico, New Zealand)

Shows: 70

Tours: Four total between Josh and I

Days on the road: 336

Bloggers met up with: 10

Favorite Show: Taking the R&S truck onto the Kennedy Space Center and setting up in front of the Vehicle Assembly Building

KSC with WM

Favorite Place Visited: Well I’m going to put New Zealand here, hard to top that

Any other stats you’re interested in?
