For the past 25 months, we’ve worried about the process for going places, seeing new countries, and pivoting when new restrictions prohibit our visiting said countries, but what if we were to make it somewhere overseas, have a great spring break of exploration and relaxation, only to be prohibited from […]
February started with a ski trip to Tahoe with friends I met in 1998 via the Tennessee Air National Guard. I skied 40 miles the first day and another 37 on sore legs the second day. A couple of us won a few hundred dollars at blackjack just across the […]
The entire 2021 in 9 or so minutes–one second at a time. Perhaps one day we’ll find all of this interesting.
About 6 months ago, I found a great deal to Salt Lake City, went online and saw that Park City’s ski slopes were set to open on November 19, and secured 5 Delta tickets, a couple Marriott hotel rooms, and 5 Epic ski passes. November 17, we learned the opening […]
For our 16th anniversary, we crashed joined in on our neighbors’ annual vacation destination and experienced our first adults-only, all inclusive, resort at the Excellence Playa Mujeres, and I’ve already booked it again for next November!

In September, we camped out at Oak Mountain State Park near Birmingham, celebrated my bride’s birthday in Austin, watched horses race at Churchill Downs in Louisville, and enjoyed nearly a week at The Breakers in West Palm Beach for a legal conference. I’m gonna miss it.

We pushed through a port-o-john door covered in stickers, walked past the urinals, and entered the hidden bar behind Bodega Taqueria for what I’d thought would be a quiet speakeasy like the ones we’ve visited in Denver, San Francisco, Austin, Atlanta, Rome, Paris, Kyoto, Boston, New York, Chicago, and San […]
I’ve spent as many weekends as possible in 2021 on mountains. Every weekend since getting mountain bikes, my bride and I have gone west, south, or north of Atlanta to ride. One weekend earlier this month, however, we brought the children, and Jody brought his oldest daughter, and the 7 […]
Remember 2019? Me neither. Let’s fix that (for August-December, anyway).
