Everything Okay?

“You out there? Everything okay?”

We had gone dormant and a Facebook friend was worried. The social media thing had gone all wrong, there was anger creeping into many posts, and we needed a break. So, we stopped for a while. Just looking and lurking, but not posting. It had become way too easy to be caught up in the instant gratification and ego boost of social media. How many likes did I get? How many comments? Are we keeping score?

We’re back on social media now, hopefully in a more balanced way. Posting occasionally when something beautiful or interesting comes up. However, you are here – on an old media – our blog.

We used to blog regularly, but Facebook took over and blogging went out of style. Our blog has more flexibility and allows for a wider creative release. So, we’re back. You can expect to find us here on a regular basis so click on the Sign me up! button in the right column if you want to follow along. We may also mention on Facebook and/or Instagram that we’ve made a new post, or, not….

Was our last post really four years go? A lot of miles have passed under the Dip’s* tires since July 2015 when we blogged about travel and South America. So there’s a little catching up to do. There was the trip around the US and Canada – The Cheesy Americana Perimeter Tour – that focused on visiting weird roadside attractions and national monuments. Then there was Africa with our daughter Bonnie to see the landscapes of Namibia and wildlife of Botswana. More recently, a cruise from Vancouver, BC to Japan. So, here’s a few select photos from those travels to get us caught up. Geocaching is still an important part of our travels and we’ve almost reached 10,000 finds.

So, you can expect more blogs over the next several months as we fly away on another adventure in a few days.

*The Dip is the name of our Monaco Diplomat motorhome. It’s also where we live as full-time RVrs.

    How fun that you’re back in the land of blogging! I’ve never done Facebook (I know, I’m probably the only person on the planet, LOL) so I’m very happy you’re resuming your blog.

    You guys have been busy with all kind of wonderful travels. I can only imagine how much work it was to sort through four years of photos from your adventures to decide which ones to choose! Nice work. :-))
