Follow Locals Only On InstagramFirst camping trip of 2023 was a good one.Another lap around the sun… another ride on the carousel. What a wonderful adventure it’s been… and here’s to many more. 🍻Meet Dugan… he’s an amalgamation of Nick from New Girl, Spicoli from Fast Times, and a sprinkle of Charlie from Always Sunny.Vibe check ✅There’s a lot of quotes out there about life and nature, so rather than paraphrase Bourdain or Muir… I’ll paraphrase the reset button…Went on a Disney Bender... 🎢Albert Pujols hit his first home run in April of 2001. 21 years later, he hit his 700th. We’ve grown up with this guy - and to see him back where he belongs - in a Cardinals uniform - making history…. It was nothing short of memory that will last forever. What an experience to see it live and celebrate with 56,000 people in the stands. All cheering together, clapping, hugging, high fiving…A different point of view 🌊On my way back from Solvang I stopped a couple times to take pictures and walk around. Found some great beach views as well as a ‘tar field’ - 1 of only 5 in the world - a beachside cliff where tar seeps out from the ground and has been for hundreds of years. Some crazy history on it and pretty amazing to witness - picture 4 bottom left you can see the oil/tar leaking from the rocks onto the sand. Earth is wild…Green is my favorite color. 🌳If you’re in St. Louis you have to go and check out The Mine at Bonne Terre. It’s only an hour away and one of the coolest places I’ve ever explored. I’ll surely be back to scuba dive in the underground freshwater lake that goes down 160 feet! This place is absolutely wild - and was a working mine for over 100 years - such a trip walking through and seeing all the old mining materials.It was a last minute trip back home to celebrate my Dad’s 70th birthday and retirement (🎉🎈🥳) and it ended up turning into a week long trip filled with walks, golf, sleepovers, swimming, food, thunderstorms, and everything in between.

“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” – Christopher McCandless Continue reading

I set my alarm for 7:30am. I turned on the A/C, got in bed, put on my Apple TV and watched some episodes of LOST (I am rewatching it and it’s amazing… I have forgotten everything!). Then I took some Xanax to help me sleep since I am an insomniac, plus the fact my brain kept repeating one thing over and over… this is going to be the last time I sleep in my own bed for the next 5 weeks.
