The Community of Baseball.

I will find reasons to talk about baseball. If I see you wearing a team shirt, it's all over. The questions begin. What team do you root for? Who's your favorite player? Why? What's your favorite stadium? How come? Ever been to Fenway? Do you like Minor League Baseball? Do you have a Baseball Passport? That one always stumps them.

California, where the pioneers go.

It was a land of pioneering and inventing, where all the newest gadgets, games and films were born. I was never one for the cold and the snow, and I loved the country side more than anything.

Road Trip Series: Arlington National Cemetery

There is a place in Arlington National Cemetery where not many people go, since it isn’t near any entrance, memorial, or landmark. It’s quiet. It’s deep in the cemetery and no one wants to walk that far. This is where my grandparents are buried and where my first stop on my road trip down south began. My grandfather was a Navy Corpsman during the end of WWII and the Korean War, serving in the South Pacific as a medic. Marines…

How to Plan a Road Trip: Insider Tips

Vacations can be glamorous; a five star resort on a tropical island, endless drinks, scantly clad sun tanned bodies, crystal pools and dinners under the stars. But vacations can also be rugged; roaming from place to place, not knowing where you’ll end up, seeing more in one short span of time that some see in a life time.
