R2R will be fantastic. Will you do it as a day hike or a backpacking trip? I bet planning for it will be fun. I have never done it and don't think I would want to do it at my age. I do like my...

smart car

Scary how we are watched by everything, not just our cars but our TVs and computers and web cams. I also learned that my city has cameras in street lights and wireless hotspots across town that...

More awesome photos! I love seeing these places through your lens. The Observation Point is a bit of a strenuous hike. Did you go via the East Rim trail or was it closed?

Wow! Great photos, especially the "heart." Your trip sounds awesome.

And I totally agree with your gripe about RV generators. They are intrusive, especially when you want peace and quiet in...

I hope your DS will find a job soon. This is probably a bad time to look as all the new graduates are looking for one too. Patience is in order, but that is of course difficult to tell him. What...

Ugh! I hear you. I've been there too, and it is tough having to constantly worry about money. I hope your pay situation gets resolved soon. Getting teeth fixed can be very expensive. DH went through...

My friends and I have been asking this question as well. It is really hard to find solutions.

This is so true. When I tell people about my childhood, they look at me as if I'm from Mars and...

I couldn't have said it better than Pepteach did:

I also agree fully with mooba1 about Big Ag, Big Pharma, all the propaganda by the media.

For me personally, whole food plant-based is the...

Palm Springs tram

Hifi, your stories always make me laugh and think. This one is no exception.
Having done the PS tram myself many times, I see where you are coming from in regard to the deodorant. That's why DH and...

Pagosa Springs

DH and I stayed overnight in a B&B just outside of PS so I didn't see as much of the area as I would have liked to.

I want to add to kahluablast's list of places to eat:

Pike Place

Thanks, GraceKrispy! I didn't know.

I like to do that too when I'm in Seattle. It's really only 1 mile.

I haven't tried the monorail but that sounds like fun. Maybe I'll take my...

Happy 50th Anniversary! I don't see that very often anymore.
Isn't it great that small things make us happy now?

Not enough information. LOL I would also need to know the mileage of your car. There would be a big difference between an SUV that does 16 miles/gallon and a small sedan that does 40 miles/gallon.

hiking poles

I use hiking poles off and on, and I hike a lot. It all depends on the terrain. If it is uneven, definitely use them. They are great for balance and stability. However, make sure you use them...

I understand how you feel with all those kids barging in and freeloading. I think your DH is right about setting time limits. It is exhausting when you have an all-to-brief vacation and find yourself...

recommendations on trail runners

I thought I'd put this question out here in case some of you are runners. If you are a trail runner or mountain trail hiker, do you have a preference on trail running shoes? Any recommendations?

Yay! Congratulations on retiring, or rather semi-retiring.

I was going to say the same thing as amiga13. I started teaching at 46 (third career) :D.

Enjoy your new adventures!
