Name:
Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

Home Again

We have arrived home after nine weeks on the road. Over 9000 miles on the Pontiac. We saw lots of places, had lots of adventures, met many wonderful people. But for old folks, it was wearing. Especially the last part when we had decided that we had seen all we wanted to see (for the time being). It was time to turn for home. That decision was made after visiting Louisville, Kentucky. Now for those of you who are geographically impaired, suffice it to say that Kentucky is a long way from the state of Washington. While we drove pretty hard, we didn't want to kill ourselves. It took eight days to get home from Kentucky. Now there is only unpacking to do, the laundry, finding a place for the many books purchased along the way, and otherwise taking up the normalcies of life. But we are back, albeit a bit weary, and ready to take up the pen again for this daily ritual. More about highlights of the trip anon.

I was wondering when you'd return. I had this picture of you driving into the fog, never to return again. I can't wait to hear the high points of the trip. Save some good ones for Tankon. We need the conversation.
