For a number of reasons including our upcoming move (there is a draft post about that…I will try to get to it soonish) I have decided to move the blogs off our home server. That happened tonight. Hopefully things should be normal by Monday. If anyone notices anything funny after Monday please let me know. I am sorry if the way I did the upgrade gave you a bunch of posts in your RSS reader. I wanted to do it another way but couldn’t get it to work. Hopefully this is better and won’t need to change again soon…hopefully.

We originally created this blog to chronicle our adventures in California this summer. We are not sure whether you all enjoy it or not, but we think it is a nice way to journal our travels and interesting life events involving Milo. It also allows Scott to post his photos for others to see. Hopefully some of our trip reports will inspire others to get out and see the beauty of the land. Anyway, enough of the blog “mission statement”…
The point of this post is that you will continue to see trip reports, photos, and interesting stories about Milo right here. In fact, Scott plans to chronicle some of our other trips from this year as well as post some of the best panoramic images from the summer. Stay tuned….hopefully we can find enough time to keep posting
We are back in Salt Lake City. We are working on getting everything back in order after we were on the road for a week and then from being gone from our condo for 3 months.
We’ll get posts done on our coast trip as soon as we get things under control and we get them done.
I am sure that at least some of you noticed our website was up and down like a yo-yo there for a bit. Our DSL modem decided to become unreliable shortly after we left SLC. I finally decided that it wasn’t going to get better and requested a new modem from Qwest. Dan was nice enough to spend an entire night on the phone with me last week to get it up and going. Sometimes I forget how nonstandard and involved my network setup is… So far it seems to be working fine, but I am sure that this post will change that. Anyway, we hope that the site will be more stable for the rest of the summer, and I won’t regret the decision to have it located on our server (which I was doing for the first month). Thanks Dan!
I’m sure that some of you might have been wondering if we had dropped off the face of the earth for the past few days. Well, we had some internet connection issues the last few days at our temporary housing, which prevented us from posting. We also moved into our apartment that we’ll have for the summer this weekend. So we’ve been busy organizing things and getting a few things to make things more bearable. We’ll do some posts about all of that and about some of our newest adventures, and boy were they exciting!
I am looking for a little user interaction. I have some guidebooks and ideas of my own about places I want to see this summer, but I am wondering if other folks have ideas for us. Our thought right now is that we will try to travel somewhere approximately every other weekend (this may change due to World Cup games on Saturday that I can’t miss or visitors, etc.). We are also planning to take 7-10 days to drive home stopping along the way. We probably don’t want to go much more than 3-4 hours away for a weekend trip and even that is pushing it. The sky is the limit for our longer trip. What suggestions do folks out there have for us? Is there anything that is a must see? The more detail the better. You can send me e-mail or comment on this post.
Here it is. You were probably expecting it. A few of you even asked about it and consequently made it happen sooner. Well, that and the fact that I seemed to tell the same story a few times already today Anyway, here is the shiny, new blog to help chronicle our adventures here in California this summer. I will just give you all a little teaser and post a Yosemite photo. Much more will be coming, but we need a bit of time to get ourselves organized. Enjoy!
