Keewaydin Lake Yurt, MI

Believe it or not, there are yurting adventures to be had in the Midwest!  In our case, it just took a six hour drive – a reasonable distance for a three day weekend.  After the enormous success of our first yurt trip in southern Colorado, I surprised Molly by booking two nights at the Keewaydin […]

Camping With Crosby

You are seriously taking your eight month old camping?!?! This was the question Molly and I received from nearly everyone as we were planning our last getaway of the summer. We were both in need of some time to disconnect from the real world after a busy summer and hadn’t been to Michigan since our […]

V.A.B. (Vacation After Baby)

What? You need to be fed? What?  You need to be changed?  What? You need a nap?  Why the hell are you still crying!?!? Grand plans of taking our six month old, Crosby, out west with another couple and their son were quickly shut down when the full reality of what being on a road […]

Fish Rap Sheet

Let’s face it, we have all killed our fair share of saltwater fish and invertebrates. I started keeping a reef tank in early 2003 and have had many highs and lows in my fish husbandry ever since. Each animal is a learning experience and I wanted to share my first-hand knowledge with fellow reefers. Below […]

Washington Island, Door County, WI, biking

Washington Island, WI

Molly and I took a quick anniversary trip over Labor Day weekend to visit some friends and family in Door County, WI, and to explore Washington Island (just off the coast).  We visited on the peninsula for most of what turned out to be a pretty gloomy Saturday, then hopped on the last ferry departing […]

Turtle Flambeau Flowage

Summer was winding down, Molly’s work schedule was insane, and I was about to begin a second bachelor’s degree. A perfect time for a getaway to the Northwoods of Wisconsin. The Turtle Flambeau Flowage had been a favorite place of mine as a kid and tales of relaxation on pebble-strewn beaches, fishing, and island camping […]

The Boundary Waters

What a destination for a babymoon!  I must have the greatest wife in the world because this vacation was actually Molly’s idea from the start.  We wanted one last getaway before she got too preggo and the summer got away from us so I asked around on the Boundary Waters Canoe Area community forums for […]
