This blog started as a journal of my travels in the fall of 2010, as I circumnavigated the western two-thirds of the country. You’ll also find plenty of posts on Wisconsin, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and wherever else I happen to go in the future. This blog is intended primarily to let my friends know where I’m at, but I also hope that it will give some fun travel ideas to anyone else who wanders by the site. And if you happen to be checking it out and have some great suggestions for where I should head next, bring ’em on!
Please note that I try to provide helpful and factual information on the places I’ve been and the things that I’ve seen – but I can’t promise that my memory or notes are always accurate, so if you need exact information, a little more research might be necessary.
As I’ve been sticking closer to home, and especially with the change of the seasons, the content has become a little more “nature”-oriented. Not that most of my posts didn’t include some adventures in the natural world before, but I’ve “zoomed in” the focus a little bit, and you’ll find specifics on plants (mostly), insects, waterways, and animals – explorations on a micro level!
Some folks have wondered if I’ve “stopped” traveling – no way! I just have to do it within the constraints of a real job and paying rent (like normal people), so my travels aren’t quite as far or as frequent. That said, I am working on planning some exciting trips for the future, and any tips on great places to see or things to do (on an adventurous, nature-loving, food-tasting, culture-exploring budget) are much welcome!
