Sunsets and The Malecón

September 15, 2019

Two of my very favorite things about Havana!  There’s nothing better than a sunset stroll along Havana’s iconic Malecón.  Most of the photos are taken on The Malecón, some elsewhere and the really good ones are Leo’s 🇨🇺

Halcyon Highway Reborn!

March 5, 2016

Seems like everything is back these days for a limited run, Heroes, X-Files even an updated version of Full House! Since it’s time for a little road trip, I figured why not give Halcyon Highway a face lift and do a limited series of posts as I set off on another American road trip next…

Ready, Set, Go! Iditarod

March 7, 2013

For all the people outside of Alaska in the lower forty eight, the Iditarod  is something you may or may not have heard of.  Up here and to many fans around the world, its like the Alaskan Super Bowl! Now that I’ve been in Fairbanks for almost 6 months, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to learn…

Fairbanks Follies-The Adventure Continues

February 10, 2013

Here I am still up in Fairbanks and surviving after almost 5 months!  What a weird, wacky, wonderful adventure its been. I’ve endured -50 degree temperatures, ice rain, ice fog, darkness, several minor earthquakes and a moose encounter on the trails. There really is no place like Fairbanks! This remote outpost will always be one of the highlights…

WTF (Welcome to Fairbanks) Months Two & Three

December 12, 2012

I was going to do a Month 2 post but somehow that didn’t happen, so let’s combine them since it’s been almost 3 months that I’ve been here now. If anyone says to me “There’s nothing to do in Fairbanks” ever again, I’m going to slap them upside their head. If you can’t find things…

WTF (Welcome To Fairbanks) Month One

October 30, 2012

So I’ve been here about a month now and I’m settling into life in what is becoming an ever darker and increasingly colder spot. I woke up one recent morning in complete darkness at 8:15 AM and the temperature was -9 degrees Fahrenheit in October! Someone used the expression the other day WTF, which stands for something entirely different here…

Valdez-The Terminus Of The Alaska Pipeline And So Much More!

October 18, 2012

Yes it was almost 6 weeks ago that I was in Valdez, but I’ve been busy.  Now that winter approaches and I’m hunkering down in Fairbanks, I’ll have time to do some catch up posts and Valdez was too awesome a destination not to get its own post. Valdez has it all, scenic beauty, an amazing boat…

Unalaska, Alaska and the Aleutian Islands aboard the M/V Tustumena

September 27, 2012

What do you mean you’ve never heard of Unalaska?  I’d like to sound all superior about it, but the truth of the matter is, I’d never heard of it until last summer either.   I met this random couple last summer who happened to mention they had just come back from a series of bird…

They take you through some of the most beautiful country in the world. They’ve been built so prospectors looking for riches had…

The Beautiful Journey To Stewart British Columbia and Hyder Alaska

August 27, 2012

On this jaunt up to Alaska, I decided I’d take a slightly different route than I did last time. Instead of going straight up the Alaska Highway starting at Dawson Creek, I thought I’d veer off to the left and go up the Stewart-Cassiar Highway instead. It’s Hwy 37 and 37A, two little roads that…
