After nice long vacation that involved a lot of boating, fishing, swimming, reading, and laying around (not to mention a bit of GeoCaching as well as a whole lot of driving) we’re back in town and settling back in. We ended up covering close to 3000 miles in twelve days, most of which came at the front and back end of our trip. In fact, this past weekend we set a family record by driving 815 miles in one day (Saturday) with all four kids in the car en route to a two day total of 1380 miles.

  3. Most of the articles were good. A couple got preachy enough that if I hadn’t known in advance that they were guests I’d have stopped coming back.

  4. Matt, thanks for your thoughts. I figured a few articles from a different perspective would be better than ‘dead air’ in my absence.
