I enjoy the make-it-up-as-I-go vacations. I'll usually pick an overall destination with a few "must see" things along the way, and everything else in between is made up as I go. No reservations. No agenda. Very liberating. For me, the journey can be as much fun as a destination, and I love to drive--I've driven through all 50 US States, 9 Canadian provinces, and 7 European countries. While in the Navy, I traveled throughout the Pacific Rim, Indian Ocean, and Persian Gulf regions.
Grew up in Chicago area; university in Ames, IA and Champaign, IL; lived in Honolulu, Yokosuka, San Diego, Newport RI, Seoul; and southeast Indiana.
