Anytime there is a window of time that we can travel, we jump on the opportunity to do it. Three day holiday weekend coming up? Why not go on a road trip. We headed away from Orange County and drove north along the Pacific Coast highway. First stop on the road trip is the Danish […]

We are taking an early start on Labor Day holiday weekend and heading out to the mountains tomorrow. It will be a long […]
600 miles and 24 hours later, I am home sweet home. I don’t know when I’ve felt more tired, driving solo for 4 hours or the morning after a long race? 4 hours is the longest time I have ever been driven straight and I did it twice in the last 24 hours. I did the […]
