2016 Bye Bye

Oak Glen with Snow, part 1

(10 photos) Kat and I both have days off work this week (yippee!) and took a spontaneous drive to Oak Glen yesterday. While we noticed plenty of snow on the high mountains the next range over from Oak Glen, we didn’t expect to see snow on the ground in Oak Glen. It was a wonderful […]

Letterboxing and Geocaching

(16 photos in gallery) While in Big Bear over Thanksgiving weekend, my sister-in-law, Jeanne, suggested we explore the area, searching for Letterboxing and Geocaching sites. I’d heard of Geocaching, where people hide tiny items for others to find via GPS coordinates. Letterboxing is somewhat similar, but has more of a treasure hunt element because of the […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
