Upcoming Trip

We made the move from NYC to Chicago at the start of July, went for a short hike in the Indiana Dunes where Kenobi figured out that he can swim, and took a road trip with my father to Kansas City where Kenobi was not welcome. Other than these short excursions, we haven't done much... Continue Reading →

On the Minister’s Creek Hikes

We had planned to stay at Allegheny National Park for three nights. Our arrival was later than expected, so there wasn't much time to hike Friday. We wandered around the camp area and explored a little before going to sleep. Kenobi wasn't fond of the tent. He examined it as he does everything. Our first... Continue Reading →

Day One at the Falls

Not much of a hike, but a really nice walk. We started around Goat Island, ventured out across Three Sister's Islands and back, and continued... Continue Reading →

It's not just gathering everything up to take to a new home. There is a garbage pile... Continue Reading →

It's been quite a year with paw cuts, allergic reactions, new territory, many friends, and a couple not-so-friendly encounters, but overall a wonderful year with happiness and warmth. Kenobi makes friends everywhere he goes, and people are always asking to pet him. Small... Continue Reading →

Ten-Day Count Down

There are only 10 days left until we hit the road. Some adjustments to the original plan: not the ultimate road trip, longer stays along the way, and camping. We only have six weeks for our road trip, so the ultimate is out. But the good news is that having a trial run will help... Continue Reading →
