    Who would have thought the learning experiences would begin before I even left?

    Today during my morning Awakening Meditation with Margaret Nichols (see link below) I received a surprise care package dropped off by FedEx from my friend Jessica Bailey-Bartini. Jessica is no stranger to gift giving. She usually sends me a Christmas gift before Thanksgiving. She is also stellar at a quick ...

    All things Bad-ass

    I've been inspired by the Badlands to make this blog post all about things that are bad-ass. Truly, I'm blown away by the Badlands. I've been to quite a few National Parks, including Denali, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Arches. I knew full and well what I was getting myself into when I visited those parks. I'd planned to go to Mount Rushmore (impressive in the way that man-made feats are), and we luckily stumbled across the badlands ...

    As we entered Nebraska, I saw countless sunflower fields, which appeared at first to be a giant yellow sea. I pulled over to snap some photos, and after a few shots I realized I was right next to a beehive. A short reenactment of Tommy Boy later, we were back on the road.

    After successfully avoiding bee stings and making it to South Dakota, we pulled in for the night at Yankton, SD, after crossing Gavin’s Point Dam. Successful first ...

    ... daily mileage is also exceeding expectations. The baseline was 600 mi/day, which we've beat both days. Couldn't resist a stop at the headquarters of the reality show "American Pickers" in Le Claire, IA. Picked up a couple souvenirs and took some pics.

    We're staying in Adel, IA at a KOA campground, which we hope is as nice as last night's stay. The halfway mark of the trip will be hit tomorrow as we ...

    Preparations

    Bob and I are preparing for our two month adventure in Spain. We are attempting to hike 10k every morning and have now added another 10k in the afternoon. Along with the hikes, we have added our backpacks. The question now we are asking each other often, "Why are we doing this?" It seems silly to work this hard in retirement. The Camino is referred to as 'The road of Reflection', so maybe we will figure this ...
