9/5/2021: “It’s Fall Already??”
It’s that pretty time of season again – when I hunt for some of nature’s best color displays. The beginning of the end of my travel year.
About The Blog
You don’t have to spend thousands or go overseas to get a good vacation! This blog is about my personal excursions across the Midwest states of the USA, and hopefully trips even further from my home as time goes on. My hope is that some of my ideas can pass on to you so that you don’t have to constantly daydream about going somewhere like I used to! For now, I’m traveling solo so I will also talk about what things look like for any solo traveler out there. After every trip, I will discuss logistics: finances, time, environmental knowledge, and the overall difficulty of putting the trip together. There are well-known and lesser known destinations out there, and I intend to grow and develop a life collage of them.

I only recently discovered my growing interest in solo traveling and the excitement in moving around my homebody self. Though I’ve little need to speak words, I’ve always had a talent for writing, analyzing, and reporting. Thus a once far-fetched idea of starting my own blog was born. My other interests all revolve around moving my mind as much as my body; I’m a fervent gamer, and chess is a long time favorite of mine (you can find me on the USCF website too).
