Summer is a great time for a road trip, and a summer wedding is an even better reason. This has been kind of a regular thing most of the past few years.
This is the fourth and final report on my New England road trip that began with a visit to Virginia, included a short stop at Yale, and a short week at InterVarsity’s Toah Nipi Retreat and Training Center in New Hampshire. (more…)
This year’s spring excursion found me headed east early in the morning, towards Virginia. (more…)
Prairie du Chien, my home town, is Wisconsin’s second oldest city and the home of Wisconsin’s first millionaire. Hercules Dousman made his fortune in the fur trade in the early 19th century. I grew up looking at a picture of the family mansion, the Villa Louis, on the Ahrens Dairy milk cartons at breakfast every morning. The Villa is a historic site that attracts visitors all year long.
Last weekend we were invited for breakfast. Actually it was a special event on the Villa’s calendar called “A Victorian Breakfast.” (more…)
The arrival of 2017 found me on the road headed south, towards InterVarsity’s staff conference in Orlando. (more…)
I like road trips and I like to visit my granddaughters. So deciding how to travel to a staff conference in Orlando was easy, I could drive and visit granddaughter Eden on the way.
Got an early start and made it through Chicago before rush hour. By the time the sun was coming up, I was driving through the windmill fields of northwestern Indiana. (more…)
Before our trip to Japan we were dismayed to read the weather forecasts and to see them filled with cloudy, rainy days. But it wasn’t so bad. Then, when our last day in Izukuni dawned (previous article on this page) bright and sunny, we rejoiced with an early morning excursion around the neighborhood.
