New Year, New Re-start?

Sunday, January 07, 2018

Wow. I haven't posted a blog in nearly a whole year and realize I haven't been sparking much during that time either - at least not on the site. I did get the latest group I joined - the Photographic Society of America - added as an interest. Now I just need to figure out how to share that with them!

We traveled a great deal last year. There was a 23-day road trip from Washington to Florida, up to Ohio, and back again, hitting a lot of states neither of us had been through. (That trip cemented our desire to travel full-time once DH retires again here in a couple of years.)

Then there were trips to the Oregon Country Fair (6 days), for the solstice (3 days), and to visit our son after he moved to Los Angeles (12 days). All in all, I'm pretty sure we racked up about 10,000 miles this past year.

Mostly, I must admit, learning photography pretty much took over most of last year and I sort of lost track of my fitness goals. I'm finding it really difficult to get in strength training when we're on the road, especially in such cramped quarters (a 1999 EuroVan camper has about 80 square feet total) when the weather is bad. And, to be honest, I haven't kept up with it at home either.

So, that's where the re-start comes in. I haven't actually planned it out yet, but this blog is a beginning

    You came all the way to Oregon and didn't stop to say hello? I only live about 100 miles from there. You break my heart. lol Seriously, I hope you can get back on track. And I hope you reach your travel goals.

    Nice to see you back. I am guilty of not blogging for a lot longer than you. Mostly because of computer issues and a hand injury. I have been sparking and continuing with my healthy habits though.
    It sure sounds like you have been busy with some great adventures. Lots of travel and learning photography. I always thought you were an excellent photographer though.
    Happy to have you back and looking after your health, very important so you can continue with your travels and adventures for many years to come.
    WOW,The picture is pure magic. emoticon emoticon
