The first installment about our trip North to Mohonk Mountain House.
An impromptu trip to Nashville turns into a mystical journey across the heart of bourbon country
What to do on a beautiful Saturday during the long Labor Day weekend? We quickly settled the “dilemma”, choosing a drive to the Lehigh Valley, and a walk on the campus of Lehigh University in Bethlehem PA, Mike’s alma mater. With the luxury of time, we headed out for the day, planning to drive Interstate-78… Continue reading Time Well Spent–The Back Road From Lehigh University
Daily life is, in general, pretty mundane. Ask the average adult what they were doing in June of 1998, and you’ll likely be met with blank stares, occasional chin-scratching, and something that sounds a lot like “Uuuhhhhhh….” Even vacation, though certainly more interesting and often more exciting than everyday life, still often falls short of… Continue reading The Drive to Myrtle: Heading Home

It was the first time we had an opportunity to test whether taking back roads is truly a viable option for four-wheeled travelers, or if it’s strictly something that will appeal to bikers. Heading east on Wednesday, taking back roads wasn’t really an option: even though… Continue reading Post-Turkey Travel – US Route 30
The Enchaned Olive – a plethora of oils, vinegars, and other Mediterranean food options await those who travel north of Pittsburgh.
OK, so I deviated from my own standards on several fronts with the map above.
