A 3 day trip in central US Milwakee Wisconsin aka Cheesehead State 🧀. Early arrival into MKE at 1:00am, famished as usual and freezing cold at 12 degrees Fahreheit, had me searching the local eateries, my favorite pass times on a layover, time permitting off course. Only to find the travel channel favorite Brat House a famous German sausage restaurant. The next morning braving the cold and windshield of 10 degrees all bundled up I walk over to this famous restaurant. The dish featured on the show is what I got and omg it was amazing. The flavours of the German sausage cooked in beer with a mushroom and onion dressing on pretzel roll, side of potatoe salad to die for. Everything I imaged it would taste like. Onward to discover some cheese off course why ... read more

Who Are You? Who Are We? Seems impossible that we are 2 people who just had the good fortune to spend 4 days in the desert experiencing mind blowing music produced by 6 legends of rock and roll! It was awesome and unforgettable. Speaking of unforgettable, I want to be sure to mention the fabulous food that was part of Desert Trip. There were so many options and all that we tasted were delicious! Last night's concert was epic! Definitely Marc's favorite of the three. I loved Paul McCartney, but watching Peter Townshend play the guitar was a thrill! The Who's set was 22 songs, all classics! Did you know that Zak Starkey is the current drummer for The Who? He is Ringo's son and guess who taught him to play--Keith Moon! Roger Waters was phenomenal ... read more

The past two days have been awesome! I essentially decided to come west this summer before the cruise because I wanted to see the Jays play somewhere on the road. They didn't disappoint - two big wins! But first off I want to give major kudos to the fans in Arizona - they're good sports and they're super friendly. So yes, yesterday was a recoop day - get final things organized for the cruise, repack some things and just veg in air-conditioning before heading off to Chase Field. I went early because I wasn't sure what time the gates opened. Turns out it's 1.5hrs before instead of 2hrs... but that's ok, I just hung out with all the Jays fans. I met people from Vancouver to Moncton, but the vast majority of people were West coasters. ... read more

Hello, you can call me Frank and this is my first travel blog. When do you start getting ready for a trip to Alaska? Well, Jeanne and I have been getting ready at least since 2009, when we purchased a new Winnebago Aspect 30J class C motor home. So far, we have driven it around Arizona and New Mexico with two multi-week trips to Oregon and Colorado. For the past two years, I have served as a Church Service Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. During this time Jeanne has helped care for her mother who was disabled by a stroke. Now we are ready for our trip of a lifetime. We have renewed our passports, checked Canadian travel regulations, made reservations as far as Calgary where we will witness the ... read more

Bonjour à tous Cette journée, un peu comme hier je pourrais l'intitulée, journée des imprévues, des contrariétés, finalement heureuse. Ce matin encore je démarre relativement tôt 7h15. comme je l'avais annoncé hier je me suis concocté un parcours qui devrait être assez sympathique, qui passe par la montagne et ne devrait me rallonger que d'une cinquantaine de km soit 250 au total. Ma première programmation est la ville de Mammoth, dans la vallée de Oro, puis ensuite Globe dans la Copper Valley (vallée du cuivre). Je ne regrette pas mon choix la route est agréable, la montagne désertique avec ces cactus, différents et plus gros qu'hier sont un décor, plus tôt plaisant A Globe je passe par le centre, je pense que la ville ne vit que par les carrières, plus tôt impressionnantes. Que je ne ... read more

Bonjour à tous Les jours se suivent et ne se ressemblent pas. Sauf pour la température qui ne varie pas, toujours entre 38-42°, avec aujourd'hui un petit vent chaud qui dessèche, les yeux, la bouche. il me semble que je commence à le ressentir en fatigue. C'est d'ailleurs pour cette raison que ce matin, j'ai pris un plus de temps, et ne suis parti qu'à 9h, en direction du centre ville de Phoenix. Je suis pourtant bien équipé en guide, le mien, ceux de l'État d'Arizona, internet, je n'ai rien trouvé de motivant dans cette ville. A 9h du matin les rues étaient désertes. Sans difficultés j'ai trouvé le Capitole, qui n'est pas ostentatoire comme dans certains états, la place devant n'est pas trop mal, j'ai tourné un peu dans le centre "nada". Ce que j'avais ... read more

Geo: 33.4479, -112.083The Sixty Five Years Young Birthday Tour continued after a series of second-childhood adventures that included chasing aliens, sand tobogganing, and, most recently, stomping through an old western town playing out cowboy gunslinger fantasies. Shady Lady was starting to get a little weak-kneed every time Dusty Dave B tied his imaginary horse to the railings outside of our hotel, and now Dusty Dave almost always walks with his thumbs hooked in his belt loops- part of that is probably the new cowboy swagger he has, but I suspect it's largely because his belt doesn't fit after his steak misadventure in the Big Texan Steak Ranch. With all this renewed testosterone and estrogen flying around we think we overheard them talking about trying for more kids.Then came Buckin' Bully, the meanest, nastiest, wildest mechanical bull ... read more

Geo: 33.4479, -112.083 We left Tucson and drove up toward Phoenix. We took a side trip to Casa Grande Ruins National Monument. It is a large house built around 1350AD. It was built by Indian tribes that roamed the area around that time. They built a compound and the big house was in the center of it. After visiting there, we checked into our hotel, had a nap and then dinner. This morning, we got up and headed out to Deer Valley Rock Art Center. It is a huge pile of basalt rocks that have petroglyphs carved into them. They were carved around the same time as the Casa Grande. After visiting there, we drove over to Taliesin West, which is Frank LLoyd Wright's western studio. His first studio was in Wisconsin. After he developed pneumonia, ... read more
