The Road to Q-Demption – Day 6

April 24, 2016 Starting mileage: 2638.2 We had a leisurely, tick-free hike through the trails of Foothills Family Campground before breaking camp.  With a few hours before we hit the last pit on our barbecue tour, I munched on some of my homemade granola bars as I broke camp.  It took longer than it should […]

April 22, 2016 Starting Mileage: 1896.7 When I poked my head out around the curtain I saw that the forecast had not been wrong: it was pouring outside.  We were able to get in a quick walk around the parking lot without getting too soaked and soon back on the road. First stop of the […]

The Road to Q-Demption – Day 1

I walked through my front door the morning of Monday April 18 at 2:30 on the dot.  During the drive  home from the airport, I had toyed with the idea of sleeping for a couple of hours and getting on the road.  I knew I didn’t need much in the way of supplies since this […]

The Road to Q-Demption

I was at work counting down the minutes until I left for the Bahamas, when I flipped open a local newspaper.  I was absentmindedly skimming the headlines when I turned to the Travel section.  Suddenly my wandering eyes stopped…an article about road trips.  Should be interesting.  I opened the paper and felt my jaw drop […]

The Only Wedding Where I Almost Cried

My brother doesn’t half-ass anything so when he got married this April, he did it in the Bahamas.  He’s my baby brother; I had to go.  And besides, he needed a best man…bridesmaid…best maid…Anyway, it was a chance to go the Bahamas for a week.  Specifically, we stayed at Augusta Bay on Great Exuma.  Rather than give […]
