It's been a while since I wrote a travel blog. Well I am off on an other cruise. This time Karen is coming with and we will be on a much bigger boat than usual, and I wont be driving. We are headed to the Western Caribbean on the cruise ship, Norwegian Spirit. People may wonder if we have any concerns after the Costa Concordia sank off Italy last month. We have more confidence in the Norwegian Captains than Italian Captains so we aren't worried. This is the boat! This is the route.

March 31 - April 2 The Road Home We completed our packing and were ready to start the long trip home at 10:30 AM on Wed. March 31.

Rick and Wayne are still good friends after being ... read more

Ok so I know Devils Lake State Park in Wisconsin isn't all that exotic or exciting, but this is the first time we are climbing outdoors so I am excited! Because winters in Chicago suck so much, we searched high and low for some indoor entertainment. What we found was an indoor climbing gym in a suburb about 30 miles west called Vertical Endeavors. We had a blast climbing and we ended up getting memberships. However, with summer and scuba diving, we soon forgot about climbing (especially climbing indoors). However, I was determined to climb outdoors at least once before winter reared its ugly head and we once again became banashed to the indoors. I picked Nick up from work and we headed to Station 3 so we could meet up with Colin and his fiancee ... read more
