Going On A Trip (Game)

Homeviews

As I was perusing my photo albums yesterday I realized that in many places I’ve camped, I had a picture with a black frame around it: a photo taken from inside Cas looking out. I made a sort of mini-album of these pictures and others with one big rule in mind, the picture had to […]

A Walk Around the Neighborhood

Training time has come to an end, the summer season officially starts tomorrow – Memorial day weekend.

Only Scratching the Surface

Yellowstone is big, very big. In my five days here so far, I’ve come to the tentative conclusion that as a visitor, you’d really want a good seven days or so to do this park justice. Some national parks you can catch the highlights in a day. Badlands was one, and even Zion you could […]

A Wish For Something More

September 5, 2009 My roommate and I stand in the campground at Hunting Island State Park, only a half-hour drive from our new apartment. We’ve just moved down to South Carolina from Wisconsin this summer, and are enjoying the change of scenery. My parents didn’t think I’d actually do it. I don’t think they get […]

Three Calls from Wyoming

Some of you might be wondering what I’m doing with all of my free time these days, only putting in 12-14 hours a week at Enchanted Rock. Seeing the sights around Texas? Exploring every inch of the park? Kicking back in my camp chair and reading in the sun? Well, something like that. While my […]
