Process Equals Freedom

“It’s not hard to make decisions once you know what your values are.” – Roy Disney My previous business was a joint venture partnership.  The business was an ongoing concern in the United Kingdom and I approached the founders to bring operations to the United States.  One thing that initially attracted me to the company […]

Why I Meditate

I’ve been working on this “first post after the trip” for quite some time now.  I can’t say the work has been productive or the writing exceptionally good.  In fact, most of the time when I sit to write, I look out the window or just stare at my screen.  After a couple of half-hearted […]

Home

After attending my Dad’s retirement party in Washington DC, we returned to Tin E in Oklahoma City.  It was anticlimactic to be back in the trailer.  Trips to National Parks, the Pacific Northwest, Wyoming, Montana, Canada, California, Arizona and New Mexico were all in the rear view mirror.  While there are great spots back East, […]

Retirement Party

One of the reasons we flew through the southwest was to make it to Oklahoma City by October 6th.  Why would we want to visit the thriving metropolis of OKC so badly, you ask?  Well, we had a flight back to the DC area to attend my Dad’s retirement party.  The expeditious driving and flight […]

I’m typing this post from King’s Canyon National Park, an absolutely stunning park in the Sierra Nevada mountain range of California.  This evening we took a hike through a Sequoia tree grove where literally people from all over the […]

Travel Teachings

Driving our truck, “Gringo”, today to get an oil change, it dawned on me that we have logged some serious mileage over the past 2.5 months.  Looking at the oil change sticker in the upper left hand corner of our windshield, it was surprising to calculate that we were getting an oil change some 3 […]

Payday

Up until our arrival in Jackson, WY, I’ve been questioning our decision to do this trip a decent bit. Like starting any new venture it takes awhile to settle into things and get comfortable with the new surroundings. Taking a long term trip with your young family, in close quarters, is no exception. Doubt for […]
