Not The End: The book is Not Quite Finished

The book that I thought was done is currently undergoing a facelift. There is a new cover and a professional edit in process. I’ll update this when it is ready.

An Odyssey Through Covid America

That’s a Wrap!

That’s a Wrap!

...and that is a sucky title for the final column. Toes in the sand? The end of the beginning? Across 50 states? How do you you wrap up 40,000 miles through 50 states and 110 columns over five months? Anything I write will seem anti climatic to me. But these are all...

Hiking to Papakolea

Hiking to Papakolea

It was tough figuring out which picture to use as the "featured image." Papakolea Beach is my favorite place. Ever. I think it is the uniqueness of it. There are only four green sand beaches in the world and one is right next to South Point on the Big Island. (The...

Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage

As the sun sets on this adventure, how could I not make a pilgrimage to KOA Coffee Plantation, the coffee I have been trying to better this entire trip? It came close in Alaska but everything else just palled in comparison. So, I went back down south, to Kona, the...

The Circuit

And around we go. I wasn't planning on doing it today. The weather on the Big Island can be hit or miss believe it or not. It really is like a microcosm of the US. Depending on where I am on the island, and what elevation, I can go from 60-80 degrees. On the dry side...

State #50

State #50

Well, close to a year after I first expected to be here, and after 5 months, 49 states and about 32,000 miles, I finally made it back to the Big Island of Hawai'i. A journey through 50 states of Covid America has come to a close. I am going to cheat a little bit here....

Parked in Seattle

Parked in Seattle

I do love Seattle. I just wish I could, well, get rid of a mountain range? The Cascade Mountain range is what keeps the Pacific Northwest lush and beautiful. It is also why there is such a gloomy winter. Despite popular belief, Seattle (and Portland) are not even in...
