Feed Your Belly and Soul with Jane and Michael Stern’s Roadfood

Feed Your Belly and Soul with Jane and Michael Stern’s Roadfood

It’s going to snow again tonight at the Jersey Shore. Enough I say!  ENOUGH!!!  When I spot that first seemingly innocent, seemingly cute snowflake I am going to go out into my backyard, shake my fists at the heavens, curse the Polar Vortex, and demand the immediate and unambiguous arrival of Spring. After I do that I’m going to relax and spend the rest of the evening mapping out some of our spring and summer road trips.  We have reservations for campgrounds in Myrtle Beach, The Brandywine Valley, Cape Cod, and the White...

Dreaming of Doing the Fifty…But Not Just Yet

Dreaming of Doing the Fifty…But Not Just Yet

I’ve been dreaming about doing the fifty for a long time now.  It started during one of our early pop-up camper trips in Cape May.  As I was walking back to our campsite from the pool I spotted a grey-haired couple relaxing under their awning, drinking an afternoon cocktail, and looking happy and satisfied.  They had one of those big sticker maps of the United States on their RV right next to the door.  They had filled in the map with all of the individual state stickers–even Alaska.  It was an act of visual braggadocio that spoke...

Route 66 Still Kicks: Driving America’s Main Street

Route 66 Still Kicks: Driving America’s Main Street

I have always dreamed about driving Route 66 from Illinois to California–and chances are, if you’ve heard Nat “King” Cole croon the famous tune, you probably have too. This heavily mythologized American road trip is somewhere near the top of my bucket list.  It has been hard for me to explain why my imagination was so drawn to Route 66 because I really didn’t know much about it beyond the lyrics to that song–until now. I picked up Rick Antonson’s Route 66 Still Kicks: Driving America’s Main... Read More

He gets the goods; She unpacks them: Book Buying and Book Reading

As you can tell from his last post, Jeremy really loves everything about buying books- not just the books themselves but also the stores, the cafes, and even the (ahem) t-shirts. Yes, he actually owns a Strand t-shirt from the ’90s and it is still in regular rotation. The whole book store thing is a little bit of a romantic attachment, but as he reminds me regularly, it could be worse. And while I don’t enjoy the bookstores, he is right in arguing that I do enjoy the purchases. Lucky for him. Value added. So I kind of see it this... Read More
