Charlie and I do a lot of travelling
around the United States, both for fun and on business, visiting
many major cities and recreation areas each year. We often travel
in order to enjoy our many hobbies and outdoors sports activities
- and also to visit friends all around the United States. Between
business and recreation, it seems like we're always winding down
from our last trip, and getting ready for the next trip. We're
often found in airports on or the road to somewhere!
In the past, we've often travelled
in the spring and fall to run whitewater rivers in the eastern
and midwest U.S. We've often travelled to Wisconsin, Western
Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia to run whitewater
in our solo white-water canoes. You can see some photos from
those travels in Lynn's Whitewater
During the summers we now often
travel to motocross tracks in Michigan, Ohio and Ontario, and
to trail riding areas in northern Michigan to enjoy motocross
racing and trail riding on our dirt bikes. In the winter time
we've often travelled to Florida to do practice riding and trail
riding there. See our Motocross
Pages for scenes from those racing adventures.
In addition, we enjoy travelling
around the country to visit friends, and often visit the San
Francisco Bay Area, Washington D.C., Chicago, and Boston, and
various recreational areas in Florida and Louisiana. For some
scenes of a recent fun trip, check out our Fishing
in Louisiana page.
In 1998, we went on a memorable
travel vacation that arose from our interest in amatuer astronomy.
This was a Caribbean cruise to see the total eclipse of the sun
on the February 26th near the island of Curacao, just off the
coast of Venezuela. The cruise itself surprised us, it was such
a marvelous experience, and stimulated an interest in cruising
just for fun and relaxation.
Sometimes our trips are for
special adventures, such as our wedding trip to Mackinac Island
in August, 2002. We'd visited the Island a number of times before,
and it was the perfect place for a romantic journey.
In January of 2003 we went on
another cruise, sailing out of San Diego and going down the west
coast of Mexico. It was a wonderful mid-winter break, and provided
an opportunity to take some neat photos of scenic places. We're
hoping to do more travelling in the future, as we now have even
more time for vacations together. Meantime, when we aren't travelling
somewhere else, we enjoy having our friends visit us at our country
home in Michigan.
