Oceanside, California

After a whirlwind couple o’ days in Colorado Springs where we caught up on mail and appointments, we flew to San Diego Monday night and took the train to Oceanside Tuesday. We’re staying in a lovely condo that’s less than a block from the Pacific Ocean. HOWEVER, the train tracks are as close as the…

Chattanooga et al

We flew from DC to Chattanooga on September 13 and are flying back to Colorado in the morning (the 21st). We came here to visit homeschooling friends, Lance and Elyssa, from Colorado Springs who moved here with their five kids in 2012. They bought five acres of land to farm and, with their friend Dan…

Detroit airport & Siberian taxi driver in Boston

I tried uploading the video here but with…
