We Own a Kayak

Ever since we bought the Subaru, we’ve been joking that we need a kayak to bring it to its full potential. Our interest in actually getting one comes from our trip to Kanopolis State Park. You can paddle up the Smoky Hill River and… Continue Reading “We Own a Kayak”

Getting a Taxi in a Small Town

So the Husband is in the hospital for a few days and I’m holed up in a nearby hotel. I’ve got the car here, but am not supposed to drive. Prairie Peacock dropped me off at the hospital yesterday, so I needed a ride… Continue Reading “Getting a Taxi in a Small Town”

Step It Up South America!

Giggle. I looked at my stats for last year, and my map made me giggle. I’ve got good coverage in Europe and Asia, a smattering of folks from Africa… but no one from South America! Clearly I need more southerly-facing content. I’ve been in… Continue Reading “Step It Up South America!”

Waconda Forever

It’s been a week. Had a cold, which in this time of stupid pandemic tricks, is terrifying. But never had a fever, just chills and sweats and general crappiness. So we went to Lake Waconda for my birthday.

Czech it Out

For my birthday, we are doing another COVID-19 conscious road trip. We set out mid afternoon and promptly got stopped by a train.

I Like Big Basin, I Cannot Lie

In addition to the beautiful flowers, we had a wonderful day of exploring. We ended up going to see Big Basin, Little Basin, and St. Jacob’s Well. These are waaay off of the beaten path. We took the road less traveled. The big basin… Continue Reading “I Like Big Basin, I Cannot Lie”


After a nice night at the house, we set off for our second day. We headed out into the Gypsum Hills. There were some lovely wildflowers. Baldwin’s Ironweed. Purple Coneflower Threadleaf Sundrop Purple Poppymallow And lots more… And even better, we came home to… Continue Reading “Wildflowers”

Getting Lost

We decided to have a weekend out with COVID precautions. Road trip off the beaten path, and staying at an Airbnb. It was lovely to get out of the house, and we came into contact with people four times total (potty stops).

Road Tripping in a Pandemic

We’ve been good. We’ve stayed in, worn masks, I haven’t hugged my parents since March. But the Husband’s birthday is this weekend, and I usually plan an event rather than give a gift. We’ve gone to a beer and cheese tasting, on a surprise… Continue Reading “Road Tripping in a Pandemic”

Adventure Part Two!

I forgot to post about the second half of the day. After some damn fine brussel sprouts, we went to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. If you haven’t been, you’re missing out. It is so cool. In the fall, I think they even have… Continue Reading “Adventure Part Two!”
