Aug 9, 2012 - Niagra Falls

Even though we have been here several times before, Niagra Falls never seems to fail to reach out and grab me, literally. There is something so mesmerizing about the stupendous amount of water cascading over the cliffs that makes you almost want to get in for the ride. It's easy for me to understand the desire of those who many years ago attempted to go over the falls in a barrel. The mist, the roar, the awe and so many other adjectives come to mind as you consider how to put it into words. In reality, if you haven't experienced it, you...

Dream On

Jun 10, 2012 - Lewiston, New York

Drove to Lewiston to attend mass at the Shrine Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima, a wonderfully spiritual place.

Power Vista is a well designed combination of observation platform, educational demonstrations and museum. It...

2010 Race 2 Finish

Jul 11, 2009 - Romulus to Lewiston, NY

It shouldn’t have been a long drive day. We left our campsite at Seneca Lake and toured the Military Museum there, part of Sampson State Park, a former Navy and Air Force Base. The boys had fun looking at all of the World War II memorabilia and weapons. We climbed through lots of poison ivy (I did a Google images search on my iPhone and now we know what it looks like) to successfully nab a Geocache. On our way out of town, we checked a couple of places for wifi access to post to our blog. We tried a couple of weak signals that ended in...
