Leo and Lucy Go Camping

In addition to happy, frolicking dogs, this video shows a nice 360* of our camp site on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. -k8-

Pictures from GART12, Week One

As promised in the previous post, here are a few pictures that accompany some of the tales we told in our premier podcast.

Kate was born in the house that formally stood here at 207 Mill St, Eugene OR. They erected this Memorial Parking Lot in her honor.

Footloose & fancy free!

Route 99 is Route 66 turned upside down.

Swimming at the Yuba River in Nevada City, CA.
Chris Flat Campground in the Toiyabe Natl Forest, just off hwy 395 in central CA.

Lucy awaits whatever Kate's grilling.

The full buck moon! (I know this because of Megan.)

Bearing witness to our shameful history.

227 Japanese Americans from Bainbridge Island, WA, lived in block 3.


Route 66 is Route 99 turned upside down!


My own, personal library... finally!

The nerve!

Gramps teaches Rowan how to drive a golf cart (the Purple People Mover), just like Pop taught me when I was about R's age.

Gramps took us to a historic saloon for some sarsaparilla!

Oh, you wacky Arizonans...

Tim shows us proper leopard spotting, proving you can get good pizza in Prescott, AZ.
Beep beep!

All great journeys begin with the first steps...

In our premier podcast, Tim, Kate and Rowan discuss the highlights of the first week of our 5-week road trip.

Pictures will follow soon to accompany this podcast. It bears noting that we are posting this from a picnic location on a peak, watching the sun go down over the Grand Canyon on our last of 4 nights here. -k8-

On the Road Again

Without meaning to suddenly stop, four years have passed since my last blog entry. But today, it lives again!

We're on day 6 of a five week cross country road trip and need somewhere to collect our stories and pictures. I've just given author rights to Tim and Rowan so they can also post entries.

Look for updates on our zany adventures as we take the Great American Road Trip 2012!  -k8
