    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 …

    Lucy, Desi, Rocks, and Chance

    One of the reasons for getting out on the road was to talk to people. And within just a few days, I have already met some interesting and amazing people. Everyone has their own unique story. As it happens, I met a guy on a short hike through a small park in western New York …

    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 …

    Boxing, Food, and Two Lakes

    One of my absolute favorite things to do when I visit a new place for the first time is to check out their food.  Syracuse was no different.  There were a few places I wanted to try and thankfully they were all within a few blocks of each other.  This allowed me to eat way …

    Ithica is Actually Gorges

    This morning started out with around 4 hours of driving from Franklin Lakes, New Jersey to Ithica, New York.  It was fairly early for me.  I’m not usually one to get up around 500am.  5 o’clock, like 6 o’clock is a time that generally only comes around once per day for me.  But Charlie and I …

    Almost No Car For Road Trips

    One of the reasons I’m taking this trip is for my cousin Barbara.  This road trip is occurring in her car where, oddly enough, she and I spent most of our time together. This 2005 Pontiac Vibe is the car that Charlie and I will be spending our road time in. My cousin Barbara passed away from …

    Why Am I Going on a US Road Trip?

      Having recently realized that I’ve been to more countries in the world than I have states in the United States, I thought it might be time to fix that. Add to that the realization that New York City is often times an insular (but culturally rich and distant at the same time) bubble, and …
