Bike to school, get food for free

One of the reasons people like Pokemon Go is it gets the couch potatoes off the sofa. It was about getting some exercise. Move over Pokemon Go; there's a new app in town. My open road (MOR) works the same way most of the game apps work, you start at a level and go to [...]

gocycling in Europe – ebike

Anyone who knows me knows that I love the plug-in hybrid. I also love the outdoors. Most my friends love the outdoors as well. Sam and my husband, Stretch, talk about going on a bicycle trip in Europe, but there is no way I am in that type of shape. I take bicycle classes at [...]

A perfect week in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

I was awakened by the shriek of a great-tailed grackle or Mexican grackle (Quiscalus mexicanus). Over the next seven days, I would hear the call of many a Yucatan peninsula bird and see even more of them. The four of us, Stretch, Miriam, Sam and myself, rented a two-bedroom condo steps away from [...]

Cervezas, Tacos & Fiestas in a sailboat

Living the dream We’re in the beautiful port/beach city of La Paz on the Sea of Cortez. The trip from Los Cabos was relatively uneventful, except for the very uncomfortable anchorages in Los Frailles and Los Muertos where the waves caused the boat to roll all night.

My favorite videos of GM’s Ed Welburn

2008 - Ed Welburn talking about the just released Chevy Volt It had to happen at some point after all Ed Welburn had been with General Motors for forty-four years.

A kiss and a promise in Naples, Italy

The MINI cooper was no more than six inches from our rear fender. Twisting to the left on the back of our Harley-Davidson Street Glide, I fought the restriction of my heavy leather jacket to turn backward and raise my camera with a right hand over my left shoulder. Focusing on the driver of the Mini, [...]

Baja-Ha-Ha — San Diego CA to CA-BO Mexico

It’s hard to believe that we left San Diego just two weeks ago as we’ve already had what seems like a mini-lifetime of cruising experiences on the Baja-HaHa. Before I tell you about the adventures and misadventures, we have to give major props to Latitude 38 for organizing the HaHa as it is [...]
