The Road Awaits

Perhaps there is a gypsy gene that constantly gives my life an unsettled edge. Practicality tells me that the joys of a long hot bubble bath, followed by a slumber under 3 down comforters is foreign to a hobo - but still, I look with longing at the road, and the trains, and the sailboats passing by. I want to join the few who have chosen to wander.

And, so, I have decided to hit the road. This summer of 2010, it is time to see what unexpected adventures await.

Arayo, my dear, sweet, Newfoundland Dog, will make the journey with me - and I know that because of her I'll have a richer experience. Newfies have a way of breaking down the human barriers and helping to forge friendships. (Something about a big black bear rushing to you, then falling at your feet in adoration - it does it to people every time. Well, to the good ones, that is......)

If you have a bit of wanderlust - join us. This blog will be full of stories of the people we meet and photos of the people and places we see along the way. And, hopefully, our journeys will bring us to your part of the world, soon.


  1. God Bless your journey. Keep you healthy and happy in your adventure. Hope to see you and Arayo in PA!

  2. You coming to Florida? Gunny worked on the missing girl Haleigh Cummings case

  3. So you are on your way! I am envious. In my younger years I lived in tents, under carnival rides, spent a summer in my car with a saint bernard and another good sized dog. Do I miss those days, or just my youth and flexibility?
    Look forward to following your travels.
    If you get up my way I am sure we will meet in person.
