On-The-Road Epilogue # 8 – Wrapping It Up…

This is my last post on my recent 6,000-mile trip through the South and Southwest. The lessons learned from that trip will last me a lifetime, or at least what I have left of it. I am ready to declare what I discovered, and maybe more importantly, act upon those discoveries. Let’s start with a high-level look back on the trip: This trip fulfilled one … Continue reading On-The-Road Epilogue # 8 – Wrapping It Up…

On-The-Road Epilogue #7 – The Mindset Of The South…

Now that I am in the closing stages of reporting on my On-The-Road adventure in the South and Southwest. It’s time to talk about my observations and prejudices of that area of the country. Pictures just don’t seem appropriate for this post, so there will be none. Historically, I still have trouble getting past the Civil War and slavery issues. In some ways, I think … Continue reading On-The-Road Epilogue #7 – The Mindset Of The South…

On-The-Road Epilogue # 6 – The Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum

This is the third museum I visited during my recent three-day trip across the Gulf Coast States. I kinda think it was my favorite museum of the trip. 😎 Besides eating lots of oysters on my trip across the Gulf Coast States, I happened onto one of the most interesting museums I visited on this on-the-road adventure. It was the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum … Continue reading On-The-Road Epilogue # 6 – The Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum

On-The-Road Epilogue # 5 – Gulf Coast Art…

It’s about time I finish up my On-The-Road epilogue posts, so I am going to do that over the next four days. Generally when I travel, museums are my main stops. I just think they provide a good history of the area I visit. The Gulf Coast States are no exception. I visited several museums in this trip and will highlight two of them here … Continue reading On-The-Road Epilogue # 5 – Gulf Coast Art…

RetComLife # 37 – “The “Decision”

Procrastination, overthinking, whatever you want to call it, is what I typically do. I recognize I overthink, in fact, I overthink about overthinking. It’s time to make a decision! I have decided that I will stay where I am and will visit that decision on an annual basis. So, I am calling this place “Home”. It is where I will live now and for the … Continue reading RetComLife # 37 – “The “Decision”

On-The-Road Epilogue #4 – The Dali Museum

I have spent a lifetime studying American history, and a big part of that has been visiting museums. I dare not even try to count how many I have been in. There are many types of museums, and until recently the American history version has been my favorite. But, it seems in my elderly years Avant-Garde things are the front-runner. I now just seem to … Continue reading On-The-Road Epilogue #4 – The Dali Museum

On-The-Road Epilogue #3 – Sedona Arizona

It’s time for another epilogue post on my recent On-The-Road trip to the South and Southwest. This one will give you more pics and details about one of the most picturesque town I have ever been in. Sedona Arizona is unlike any town I have been in. It is surrounded by buttes. To this old Midwestern guy buttes just aren’t part of my dictionary. Take … Continue reading On-The-Road Epilogue #3 – Sedona Arizona

On-The-Road Epilogue #2 – Stages of the Pandemic & The Death Knell of Local Eateries

While on my 3+ weeks on the road, I actually lost almost 4 lbs. That kinda surprised me but in looking back I realized the source of the loss was the absence of local eateries in many of the areas I visited. The Midwest, or at least the part I come from has pretty much unmasked now and things are starting to return to normal, … Continue reading On-The-Road Epilogue #2 – Stages of the Pandemic & The Death Knell of Local Eateries

On-The-Road Epilogue # 1 – The Weather And Landscape.

My 6,000 mile roadtrip through the South and Southwest had many goals and unattainable expectations. But, I have learned from experience that having unattainable expectations is far superior to having none at all. I have many planned epilogue posts coming that will give you more details of the effect this trip had on me and my future plans. I need time to more fully develop … Continue reading On-The-Road Epilogue # 1 – The Weather And Landscape.
