The last nine years, I have been traveling and blogging my way across the planet.  Travelpod has been my home for blogging all of this time.  Wordpress is my new home now.  Be patient with me as I learn how to use this new system.  My intent is to continue providing pictures and thoughts from the perspective of a small town guy who grew up in the high plains of Southeastern Colorado and has lived in Texas for over 30 years.  I am grateful for my opportunities and experiences and want to share them with you, my readers and friends.
