One Year of Blogging

I did it! I posted daily for an entire year on this site. That was the commitment I made as I started here and today I fulfilled it!


This hadn’t been a particularly successful blog as the few who come here know. I don’t think there is too much interest in travel stories. Or maybe it’s just mine. I think of it like showing pictures to people of your vacation trips or baby pictures, they’re a lot more interesting to you than other people.


I remember when I began adventure traveling. I would take pictures of interesting things and then show them to people when I returned home. But after seeing the glazed look and obligatory smiles a few times, I stopped forcing them on my captive audience. I realized then that these adventures aren’t nearly as interesting if you’re not a part of them.


For awhile after that I stopped taking many pictures traveling. I didn’t see a reason since no one was interested in these adventures. But later I realized these photos are for me. For memory preservation. As I age and memory fails, these pictures are an extension of the gray matter in my head.


I’m glad I realized that as these photos are the best means I had to preserve this special time in my life when I was physically and financially able to adventure travel.


I still have not posted my most interesting experiences here. But I will over the next few months. I’ll try to keep this blog alive, even though it’s on life support now.


I thank again my few readers who come this way to read the ramblings of an old man trying to hang on to the memories of past adventures. Although there are still new ones on the horizon, I doubt I’ll be returning to the Peruvian Amazon, or visiting the tribes of Africa again.


From here forward I’ll be posting about 3 times per week rather than daily. It’s just too much work for a retired guy to do. Although I enjoy it, it also can be a burden at times.


Thanks for staying with me on my journeys through time and space. And for reading all that science and fictional crap I write as well.

Doctor House Call when Traveling?

Yeah, some places that still happen. A doctor will actually come to you. No waiting room, no sign-up sheet, and no travel. On a trip to the Philippines, I rented a small motorbike and explored the are
