It’s Winter so I’m Thinking of Summer

ShareI’m still looking into Arkansas adventures. I saw a picture on Facebook of a structure built into the rocks, and it said that it was a Civil War hideout at Mount Magazine in Arkansas. I thought, I want to go see that. Now I have some research to do. I start with a Google search …

Another Travel Find Using Geocaching.com

ShareSo I’m scrolling along the Geocaching.com Google Map through the California Redwoods, and I see a cache, an easy regular (for the muggles, a regular is big enough to have stuff in it). There aren’t a lot of caches out in the Redwoods, so I had a look. It was called Turn Off to Jurassic …

First, you have to appreciate obsessive compulsive road trip planning. That means once you’ve found some area that you think you might like to visit (the Redwoods …
