Back Story

In the summer of my tenth year, I was presented a trip to the east coast of Canada where my grandparents lived. It was clearly different from where I lived. Those who know me might argue that I never actually grew up, and that could be true, but if it is, I wear it like a badge of honor.

After that wonderful summer, I returned to my neighborhood in Detroit to discover that I had out-grown it. Then in the summer of my twelfth year, my parents gave me and my younger sister a very special treat. We motored west from Detroit to a magic kingdom in California called Disneyland. We arrived to celebrate the one year anniversary of that special place. That was for me the defining event of my life, and because of it, I was never again satisfied with where I lived. Disneyland was clearly fun, but it was the trip to Disneyland that had the real influence on me. Seeing the USA at ground level, not at 35,000 feet as most folks see it today, clearly brought out the gypsy in my soul.

I have never lost my love for travel, or for the promise of adventure. It is the journey of discovery that motivates me, and my desire to share what I have discovered is the inspiration for this website.  It is my goal to keep updating it as often as possible, but no matter what, it will always be the place for a different view of life.

Thanks for stopping by, and for being part of my creation. Your input is requested, and your participation in the discussion areas is welcomed. My goal is to have a website that will experience constant change, so come back often, and tell your friends about it.
