on the road again

If you followed our travels here in 2011, you may be interested to know that we’re starting to travel again.  Starting September 7, we’re leaving Denver and setting out on a trip through the eastern US for three months.  You can read more about that on my blog article right here.

Todd’s recollections of Arcata

I meant to write this article shortly after we left Arcata, back in November 2011.  But life soon thereafter threw me several curveballs, and I’m just now getting back to it.  I wrote very little here on “12 Cities, 1 Year” about Arcata, which was the 4th city of our trip.  We were there for… Continue reading Todd’s recollections of Arcata

I just made some updates to the website. The Portland page now has a list of most of the memorable things we did while we were there. You should go check it out. We didn’t write about some of them. I also updated the Itinerary page to show that Eureka got replaced by Arcata as… Continue reading updates from Portland and Arcata
