What is the Journey About? Jeremy’s Feeling a Bit Sentimental…

What is the Journey About? Jeremy’s Feeling a Bit Sentimental…

When I was in the fourth or fifth grade my grandfather brought our whole family to Disney World for a reunion of sorts–there were 18 or 19 of us.  The trip was supposed to be a surprise (my grandfather loved surprises) but somebody accidentally spilled the beans and I found out months in advance (my family loved to spill the beans). I looked forward to that trip every day while I was sitting in class and every night as I was laying in bed.  The wild freedom of my childish imagination had kicked into overdrive.  My mind envisioned the...

Beach Camping with the Comeback KOA: Cape Hatteras, North Carolina

Beach Camping with the Comeback KOA: Cape Hatteras, North Carolina

We had one week of summer vacation left and our wanderlust was getting the best of us again.  I was watching the weather reports for three different regions.  Would we spend our last week of summer vacation hiking in New Hampshire? Or visiting family and listening to bluegrass in The Blue Ridge Mountains? Or being beach bums in the Outer Banks?     It was 72 hours before our planned departure date and we still hadn’t made up our minds.  All of the options seemed awesome and we really wanted to take all three trips.  Stephanie and I agreed...
