The Adventure is the Journey

Driving Around Discovering by Jay Goodrich
Or is the journey an adventure? I think the two are so interconnected and interrelated that you cannot have one without the other. I have been living an adventure for a very long time now and it is has definitely been a journey. An experience. Life like in all respects. There are those sayings–Life is …

The Road Trip

Posted By Jay Goodrich
I am sitting here reliving my youth. It’s the same damn nightmare I remember, just different. I am driving on Interstate 84 finally headed home from a two-week long trip to Colorado. And, I am in fact twitching like a patient in a mental rehabilitation center. Is that the politically correct way to say that? …

Svalbard, Norway Post #1: Montana to Fidembukta Harbor

Posted By Daniel J. Cox
July 20, 2011 Our trip from Montana was uneventful – though flying anymore I find literally painful. When Tanya and I travel overseas we always plan to arrive at least a day early, ideally two or even three. Acclimating to a new time zone slowly can make all the difference on the first part of …

Día de Los Muertos Translated in New Mexico

Posted By Jay Goodrich
Descansos, Memorial, New Mexico by Jay Goodrich
This past week I traveled from Playa Del Carmen, Mexico to the Southwest, stopping in Tijeras, New Mexico, just outside of Albuquerque. The differences between the two areas are striking. Playa del Carmen is rich, emerald-green jungle surrounded by the impossibly blue turquoise waters and white sand beaches of the Caribbean.  It is wet, hot, and humid. …

Traveling Really Light

Posted By Rob Sheppard
A couple of things have made me think about lightweight and professional quality gear. This goes beyond simply traveling light and may affect how you think about megapixels and little cameras. I thought it was interesting and useful enough to include this on both my blog, www.photodigitary.com, and here. First, I was at the Nik …
