Trips-Our Adventures

Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Scotland.
Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Scotland.

For Janet and I, the time we have away from home together is very important. Now, for someone who travels for a living and is away for two thirds of the year, you might expect that all I would want to do is go home and stay there. There are many times that that is just how I feel. But, being home means that there are long lists of things that need to be done. I haven't been around for almost two weeks, and I have a couple of days to get things done. Most guys come home at night and take care of things as they happen. In my case, they pile up and are there to meet me when I get home. Janet is always busy, and has a lot on her plate while I'm gone as well. So it is important for us to get away from home from time to time, to have time for us, and not be feeling the pressure of those things that require our attention. To do that we take an occasional trip, go camping, I'll go hunting, and we do some little "getaways".

We have been fortunate to be able to get out and do a little traveling. I know that many don't get an opportunity to do it, and I feel lucky to have the chance. These are some of the trips we have taken. You can click on the link for more about that trip. This was the best way I could think of to keep this page from getting too long.

Places We've gone

Great Britain-March/April 2010

We went to Great Britain for a few weeks with some friends and had a fantastic time. We started in Scotland and then went down to London. The weather wasn't too bad for the time of year (about what we would have had had we stayed home). There is so much to do and see. We went to some shows and did a lot of sightseeing. We had to be careful in the shopping department as London is an expensive town, and we had to get what we bought back home. We also made an un-planed side trip to....

Hawaii-October 2008

Janet and I went over to Hawaii for a long week after a long summer. It was a nice getaway, starting out in Honolulu for a few days shopping, then over to Maui for a week. This was our third trip to Hawaii, but our first time going to Maui. It was a nice island to visit. We rode the Super Ferry from Honolulu to Maui and back. It was a good ride and I'm glad we did it. We stayed on the....

Yuma and San Diego-February 2008

This was a trip that Janet and I took to visit friends in Yuma Arizona. We went down to see Gary and Debbie Magrino, and Howard and Kathy Granger. We had a great time being shown around the Yuma area, and it was really nice to be in 70 and 80 degree weather in February. While we were there, we all went over to San Diego for the weekend and took Gary's boat out cruising the bay....
