I started blogging in 2007 during an Air Force deployment to Iraq and kept at it when I got back.  Since then, I’ve written for DadCentric, City Dads Group, Humor Blogs, and other sites.  This site is primarily for our family travels and adventures, because I forget stuff if I don’t write it down.

Our family trips include 2 girls (16 and 12) with a boy (14) in the middle; they’re led by an archeologist-turned-writer/influencer mom and a dad who’s deployed to Iraq twice, visited all 50 United States, run with the bulls of Pamplona, attended the past 11 Mardi Gras, walked across England along Hadrian’s Wall, and thrice visited Munich for Oktoberfest.

Our current objective is to visit as many U.S. National Parks (so far at 43/63!) and interesting foreign countries as possible before the skymiles run out.


  1. Hi,
    My name is Tiphaine and I have been following your wife for a loong time now. I quit all social networks but I do miss your family’s stories!
    It seems that Deborah is not much of a writer lately (you should tell her 😉 )
    Is there a way to register and get the news on your last posts ?
    Big hello from Portugal from a french woman (when are you coming this way ??), my love to Deborah!

  2. Hello! I’m not sure…maybe bloglovin’ is a good way to get updates (like feedburner back in the day) for both of our blogs?! That’s what I use. Here’s a link: https://www.bloglovin.com/ By the way, Deb writes a lot over at https://murdermysteryquilt.com/ –you should check it out!
