    Boy this thread is really gonna suck for current posts. In other news I heard the liquor store is gonna be kept open because it has been deemed as an essential business. I guess I could take some pics of a family trip there. :)

    Facebook reminded me that I was in Vegas 2 years ago.

    Not really 'vacation', but it very much does qualify for "having fun somewhere' ... ;).

    Meet our 2 day old grand daughter, Lucy ....

    My professor friend never payed full price traveling the world for scientific conferences or job interviews. (unless the Learning Institution paid for it; such as when he worked on the development of a new medical college in the Middle East where he was supplied with a house and servants,) His passport was stamped with every country in the world. His only regret was not getting paid job interview on Antarctica. LOL My wife and I traveled to Montreal a few years ago to accompany the good Doctor to a medical conference. A five hour drive. A drive home in a snow storm. Of course we stayed at a hostel. My legs hung over the end bar. A terriffic group of travelers down stairs in the community room. We stopped in a nice jazz bar up the street. I love Montreal.
    This would be the last time we saw our friend because he was dying of Parkinson's. Oh ya, The boarder crossing officers didn't understand why we would drive to Montreal for just two nights with an old guy in the back seat with a passport full of the worlds stamps.

    Unplanned road trips are the best. Rent a car appropriate for the drive and take off. We had a fun trip to Chicago back in 2005 for the food festival July 4th weekend. We read about it the week before so my wife and I and a friend made the drive through the night from Atlanta, Georgia passing through Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois to down town Chicago. We booked two different high end hotels across from the food festival. Walked to Buddy Guy's Legends Blues Club and enjoyed awesome music. Brought a couple of pizzas with us for the drive back to Atlanta. The trip was Friday to Monday.

    I probably posted that one already but it's just a feel good vibe and time.

    A couple of years ago, I got into shooting 360 degree photos. I currently have three 360 cameras and one of the cool features is that you can create "tiny planets" out of any 360 photo. Here are a couple that I took last year (May 2019) when I visited McHenry Dam which is located in Moraine Hills State Park, IL.

    In 2003 I retired from my first gig and drove around Nevada with my dog, Tripod. Yes, Tripod had 3 legs.
