Rather than being an empty nester, I've decided to let my children have the nest and leave myself.
I've converted my mini-van for full-time travel, and am hitting the road.
I compete in the Heavy Events of Scottish Highland Games. You've seen the big guys in kilts with the big pole they try to flip over? Yeah, I do that, but there are also weights, hammers and stones to throw.
My itinerary is planned to take me to 39 Games between mid-January and Thanksgiving.
I have some awesome cookie recipes. One of the highlights of my year is my local library's Christmas Cookie Exchange.
Most of my favorite places are in the Missouri Ozarks, but I'm open to finding new favorites.
I grew up in West St. Louis County, but home base is now in the Metro-East in Cahokia, IL. Cahokia is a nice village, big enough to have everything I need, small enough that it's all within walking distance.
I have a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country. Smallish, but cozy for one.
