Glacier National Park, Kalispell Montana, and a Flat Tire

After spending the amount of time I did in Montana, I’m starting to think that Montana is the only secret America has ever kept. Even if that wasn’t my working theory before I got to Glacier, it definitely was afterwards. The best part of that theory is that most of the people in Montana that …

Huge Dog Runs, Great Food, BJJ, and Hiking in Montana

Hands down, Bozeman, Montana is my favorite place that I’ve visited thus far. The food was excellent and there were too many good restaurants to even try. There was great hikes in every direction around the town. Other than seeing driveway stakes with 8 foot high poles attached to them everywhere ominously reminding everyone of …

Rimrocks, Custer’s Last Stand, and The Beartooth Pass

Billings was a great place to eat and hang out. But there wasn’t much to do there. I met some interesting people and had some good conversations over drinks. But if it wasn’t for the history and the food, I wouldn’t spend much more time in Billings.

Waterfalls, Red Rocks, Beer, and Sheep

While it might not be surprising that a place called Sioux Falls has actual water falls in the downtown area, it’s still pretty cool that there are actually water falls in the downtown area. Since I was in an actual city, I also made sure to look around for some good food and got some sparring …

SPAM, Mall of America, and Bluffs in Minnesota

There was a lot of cool stuff to do in Minnesota and I only really scratched the surface. Spending a holiday weekend there meant a lot of places were packed and I had to adjust my travel plans a little. There was still a lot of random cool stuff in Minnesota like the SPAM museum …

Rocks Above and Below, Deja Vu, and Mustard

Even though I’ve already been to Madison, Wisconsin, I figured I would use the time to eat at a few more places. Because hey, who doesn’t like food tours? It ended up being a weird deja vu. The rest of the day was a lot less already seen stuff. We spent some of it deep …

Old Cars, RV History, and Village Mash

I admittedly didn’t spend a lot of time in Indiana. I really only crossed through the northern tip of the state. So my Indiana experience is fairly limited. But there are some pretty cool museums that I was able to visit along the way. For some reason, they were all vehicle related. I guess that …

Ponding, Fighting, and Football in Canton

For a slight change of pace, I actually spent two days in Canton, Ohio. I had some work I needed to catch up on and I found a great MMA gym that was nice enough to let me come in and train with their team for a few days. There was also some amazing hiking …

Cheese and Rock and Roll

While I know there is more to Cleveland, Ohio than just the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and food, that’s basically what our time in Cleveland amounted to. The people were really friendly and I had some awesome conversations in the bars. Folks in Cleveland are really in to their sports teams. They are …

3 Tons of Water Per Second and Jell-O

It’s difficult to convey how immense the amount of water rolling over Niagara Falls feels. Just saying 3 tons of water per second doesn’t do it justice. There is so much water pouring over the falls that ground rumbles beneath your feet at times when the wind picks up. In person, Niagara Falls is awe …
