A Murphy’s Law Labor Day Weekend

I had a really awesome PA-centric Labor Day weekend roadtrip planned for this past holiday, gearing up to  explore western/central PA, and four PA state parks I’ve had on my bucketlist for a while now. What happened? I ended up essentially spending over 12 hours in the car, to spend less than 24 hours in

Weekly Check-In: A Super-Pennsylvanian Road Trip

I feel like me typing various iterations of “there’s so many places in Pennsylvania I’ve written about, yet have not visited yet,” is getting old. And it is. So I’m not. Instead, I’m going to share that I’m in the midst of making some very concrete plans to visit four locales I’ve mentioned as wanting

Portland Maine, Day 1

You know what I haven’t done in a long time? Taken an impromptu roadtrip. Being the king of planning and all, I can’t even remember the last time I just packed a bag with no plans, reservations, and just hit the road, so I was pretty pumped this past 4th of July weekend, when my

Summering on the Cape Part 1: Cat Boats, Lobster Dinners, and an Ode to Narragansett Lager

      Last summer, I ended up going to Cape Cod/Martha’s Vineyard for a long weekend. I actually wrote about the planned itinerary, but never ended up writing much about the trip, because as soon as I got home, I got real sick for a week (I wouldn’t be surprised if it was some

2015 New Year’s Resolutions Part 2

It’s on to Part 2 of my New Year’s resolutions. And you know what? I’m already off to a solid start. Last weekend I trotted out my snowshoes, and I have XC ski plans for next weekend already, as well as curling and Lake Placid in February. I’m pretty much already doing better than I

A Whirlwind Tour of the Jersey Shore

I spent this past weekend in NYC (or more accurately, Jersey City, with one night out in NYC) which didn’t give me a lot to write about (which is completely fine).  I mean, I had a great time (and might possibly still be hungover-4am last calls are not your friend at age 28) but it was much more

A Week in Iceland: Tuesday (Day 6)

Day six we saw the most of Iceland of any day on our trip.  We rented a car and drove along the southern coast, on Route 1, or The Ring Road, which circumnavigates the entire island. Our final destination was Jökulsárlón, a glacial lagoon at the southeastern tip of the island. We had a bit of

Summerland Tour at Bethel Woods

Have you heard of the Summerland Tour yet?   I’d been vaguely aware of it’s existence for some time; essentially it’s a group of quintessential 90’s musicians going on tour together.  I remember someone telling me about excitedly, how it would basically be the soundtrack to my 5th and 6th grade years, but that tickets cost upwards of $80.00.
