In December of 2020 Kate and I did a COVID Cannonball Run when we drove non-stop from Mancos, CO to Williamsburg, VA. We…… Continue reading COVID Cannonball Run

New year, new plans, maybe even new resolutions? I don’t know about any resolutions but I do have plans. I plan to exercise every morning. I am pretty close to this already but want to make it as regular as drinking coffee in 2021. Of course I will still drink coffee too. My goal is…… Continue reading What are your plans for 2021?
