If you have always wanted to see the Northern Lights, but you haven’t had the opportunity, this weekend you might be in luck. The best part is, you might not have to go anywhere to see them. According to NASA, a solar storm is set to hit the Earth this weekend and it may give those of us who live further South the best chance to see them in a long time.

Travel Journal (2/16/2019): Door County Getaway
The conditions were almost perfect this weekend for some spectacular sunsets up North in Door County, Wisconsin, so I decided to take an impromptu road trip this weekend.
If you aren’t familiar with Wisconsin, Door County is the peninsula that extends into Lake Michigan to the North of the city of Green Bay. My destination was my favorite state park on Door County, if not all of Wisconsin, Peninsula State Park. I included a map below so that you can see exactly where I headed.
Travel Journal (1/31/2019): Joshua Tree National Park
Today we headed Southeast of Santa Barbara, California to visit a national park that I have been wanting to visit for quite some time. Not only does Joshua Tree National Park share my name, but it is also one of the most underrated parks in the Western United States.
Travel Journal (1/30/2019): Sunsets and Seal Rescues
I made it into Los Angeles last night, and the difference in weather was quite welcome. It’s amazing what feels warm to you when you are coming from -26 temperatures.
Nick lives in Santa Barbara, which is roughly two hours North of Los Angeles. If you are able to time your drive to miss the Los Angeles traffic it is actually a fairly easy drive.
Cali Here I Come!
Seeing as though the temperatures in Milwaukee this week could not be more frigid (with the estimated low temperature tonight to be -56 degrees below zero with wind chill), my trip to see my brother Nick in Santa Barbara could not have come at a better time.
A New Year – Our 2019 Travel Plans
This past year was another banner travel year for us, with so many new places seen and familiar places revisited. Even if you have been somewhere before, it can seem almost new if you haven’t been there in a while. It seems no matter how often I visit Southern Utah, I am always discovering something new and fascinating when I visit. In case you haven’t seen it yet, I put together a post on my Top Photographs from 2018 and there are some images I am pretty proud of in there.
Travel Journal (9/28/2018): Having a Blast on Broadway
Today we really got to explore Broadway, which was a ton of fun. We checked out the bar and restaurants of Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryant, and Jason Aldean. I was amazed at how much live music is playing in these bars. Below are just some of the pictures I took that show what a fun atmosphere Broadway in Nashville is.
Travel Journal (9/27/2018): Golf and Nashville’s Gulch Neighborhood
Once we were ready to hit the town, we started our adventure in the neighborhood known as the Gulch. In case you aren’t familiar with this neighborhood, it is the art district of Nashville, much like the Uptown area of Minneapolis, the Soho area of New York, or the East side of Milwaukee.
Travel Journal (9/26/2018): Nashville Here We Come!
It’s time to hit the road again! Tonight I will be flying to Nashville for my next round of adventures. I am really excited about this trip as I have wanted to explore Nashville for quite some time. It is such an underrated travel destination in the United States.
Travel Journal (9/12/2018): Back to Santa Cruz Island
We have had some incredible luck with weather on this trip, but today that luck ran out to an extent. We were scheduled to begin our tours at 8am this morning, with stops at the Charles Darwin Research Center in the morning and trips to the Santa Cruz highlands and a snorkeling adventure in the afternoon.
