I’m officially a quirky travel guy

May 4, 2015

9000 Miles was a blast, but the site has run its course. If you’re still following along with me, head over to Quirky Travel Guy, the new travel site I debuted this week. I’m still in the process of tinkering with the layout, but content is already going up three times a week, with stories about my visits to 49 states (no Hawaii yet), Canada, and Mexico.

Also, Quirky Travel Guy has a Facebook page, a Twitter feed, and a Flickr account. We’re going large.

See you over at the new site!

Personal updates and online ventures

May 3, 2015

Hi there, as you’ve noticed from my other recent posts, this blog is no longer being regularly updated. Head to Quirky Travel Guy for my latest adventures!

In the meantime, I’ve branched out into a number of other online sites. My latest venture is a Yoga products review site called Yogauthority that features reviews of yoga mats, towels, blocks, and various other products. Elsewhere, I have sites on Chicago area ski resorts and Boston area campgrounds.

I’m also doing freelance writing for music sites like axs.com and examiner.com, where I cover pop and rock music news and concert reviews. Good times indeed!

St. Louis and the new travel blog

January 13, 2011

My trip to St. Louis a few weeks back was a great time… we checked out the City Museum, the Arch, and the Budweiser plant.

I’ll be describing all of these on my new travel blog, set to launch in early February. Stay tuned to this space for the details!

California/Oregon border (June 2009)

A shot in the tunnel that borders the two states. Up ahead are lots of pine trees and a small “Welcome to Oregon” sign on the right side of the road.

Friday Photo: Heavy punishment

Knoxville, Tennessee (April 2009)

At Chili’s restaurant, you can park right by the door. But only for 10 minutes. After that, you’re in trouble.

Friday Photo: Wall Drug

November 26, 2010

Wall, South Dakota (August 2010)

Near Mt. Rushmore is a tourist trap town of Wall, South Dakota. Wall’s claim to fame is Wall Drug, supposedly the largest drug store in America. We were warned that it was pointless to go but we went anyway just to check it out, and indeed, it’s not even really a drug store. It’s a large building that houses several different businesses under its roof – a mini-mall, basically. False advertising!
