I finally got back to my MacBook and am able to post a few pictures from the weekend. First, some pics of the new baby and family: It looks like Chelsea had a toddler!

Im getting ready to get back on a plane to head back home. It was a great trip though it was only for about 32 hours. Chelsea and Rowan held out long enough for me to be in town so that was cool. I'm glad I was able to make the trip. Luckily my flight … Continue reading June 24th, 2017

This Week’s Journey…


I saw this sign on a side street as I pulled into town: Yep, my training was five horrid days spent on the ocean in Newport, Oregon. Man, what a beautiful place this is. Gorgeous ocean views and lots of food choices. I came down the interstate and turned off where Siri told me. It … Continue reading This Week’s Journey…
