Columbia River Trek ~ Oregon & Washington

Where I’m originally from, Christmas = cold & (sometimes) snow. I now live in the sunshine state and well…there you get a whole lotta “none of that stuff.” What better remedy for the “I want snow during the holiday” need, than to spend Christmas in the Pacific Northwest! Last time I was in Portland, OR,…

Flume Gorge ~ New Hampshire ~ September 2017

When autumn rolls around I start to get this itch. Noooooo….not that itch! Ew. (Although, no see-ums are prevalent here in FL…bastards they are!)

Bahamas ~ February 2016

Ahhhh…. A cruise to the Bahamas! Who doesn’t want to go on a cruise to the Bahamas?? Well I know I do! So naturally when I was asked by my good friend Kacy to go, I jumped at the situation. Only one catch tho… “gotta help me out with the boys.” Wait…so let me get…
