I have decided to regularly update this page as trips and plans pan out, mostly to keep myself organized. Check back if you are interested and let me know if you want to come along! I was thinking this blog needed to be only for extreme traveling excursions – but heck! extremeness can be found at your local Target, right? Below are all the trips I have taken since October of last year.
