Blog Update!
For those of you not following me on Facebook, as of the Summer of 2019 I've moved to Central WA, to a tiny mountain town of less than 1,000 people.

I will be covering my exploits here in the Cascades, as I try to further reduce my impact on the environment. With the same attitude, just at a higher altitude!

If a "staycation" is not your speed and you don't want to go all-out on a trip to Rome you can still have a great time on a 100 mile vacation...

Jiminy - this is up finally!

Your link didn't work- but I can say that I am a fan of the 100 mile vacation. When I was young my mom and dad would take a vacation to north dakota , then the next year we hung around local, visiting the ocean, going to our lake property in shelton, exploring local towns and sites. I really think those were my favorite vacations- the trouble with going to North Dakota was my dad was the original Clark Griswold and would insist stopping at every snake pit and Wally World between here and Fairdale ND

The "staycation" term is making me LOL as the "new thing to do" because I staycationed before staycations were cool, or for that matter called staycations. The first one was when my husband and I were performing all summer on weekends in a show. We had vacation days we needed to use from The Real Job and lot of "if we weren't doing the show, we'd check that out" in our city. So we took a week off from work and checked out all of the stuff on our list like a day in our arts district, museums, a killer farmers' market etc. Another year we went to the State Fair. One year we holed up for a long weekend in Amish country. Another year we checked out the kitschy stuff that was listed for our state on Many are treating staycation like some sort of sad sacrifice but it doen't have to be. You can have fun no matter where you are or how much fuel you don't wan't to pollute the air with.

We are very blessed to live in a part of the world where you can visit amazing wild places without having to go very far. With gas prices rising we are content to stay closer to home and explore our little part of the world more.
