We lost our best friend today.
Keeda was the best companion anyone could ask for. If you ever met her you were probably impressed with her polite friendliness and simple obedience. She was my cohort for a decade and a half. She was always excited to adventure and traveled tens of thousands of miles with me. At this moment in time I don’t know how to put her story to words but I love her and will always miss her.
4,000 miles later, we made it from Las Cruces, New Mexico to West Point, Virginia! After visiting some family & friends in Colorado and Minnesota, we decided to wing it and stop wherever seemed interesting. It was a blast!Read more
In the midst of a heat wave in Arizona we moved to Las Cruces, New Mexico! What better time to escape Arizona then during a record breaking heat wave in late July! ^_^Read more
Despite having cancelled most of our spring/summer vacations we opted to keep this in tact and visit my brother and his wife in Vancouver, WA for the week leading up to the 4th of July.Read more
It’s neat how a scheduled departure can make you more appreciative of the things you’re going to miss when you leave. In this case, it’s camping at Lost Dutchman State Park with our great friends Sarah and Colin!Read more
It’s easily been 2 decades since I colored my hair last. I remember my dad saying, ” Sure, you can dye your hair if you want to but rebelling by imitating a stereotype isn’t really being unique is it?” In my teens I definitely looked like a few stereotypes and quite often “rebelled” by following a path someone had already laid before me such as attempting to be unique by dying my hair with my friends. ^_^Read more
Like most of the people we know, we have been blessed to only have a couple noteworthy points of impact during this pandemic (so far). The primary impact has really been social. Not being able to hang out in groups has changed our routine greatly. The second highest impact has been the availability of groceries. We’ve been blessed to not have been impacted financially by this.Read more
Biking the Saguaro National Park was beautiful! This is a bike ride (or drive) that I would recommend to anyone in the area. It’s beautiful and full of the famous Saguaro. Coming in at 8 miles with only 500 feet of elevation gain, biking the Cactus Forest loop through the Saguaro National Park is super casual. Towing Maxine and stopping to take a bunch of pictures took us an hour. You share the road with cars but we found everyone to be super respectful and slow. Everyone is there to slowly cruise through the beautiful park.Read more
