GNABRT Day 35 – Where did that come from?

Got started this morning on my next destination for the Great North American Baseball Road Trip, Kansas City, and shortly after hitting the road, weirdness began. For some reason, I was unreasonably sleepy-headed.  I got my usual departure day sleep (4-5 hours after completing the blog), but I just couldn’t stay focused. Of course, trying… Read more »

GNABRT Day 26 – Nowhere left to roam

With the unfortunate (but probably inevitable) “item left behind”, this blog and tomorrow’s will have to be kept miserly. Sadly, I left my ac adapter to the laptop still plugged into the wall in Kalispell.  Unfortunate, but replaceable.  I tried this little town’s (supposed) version of Wal-Mart and it turned out it was more like… Read more »

Get it back!

Ugh.  That sinking feeling after you press publish, post, comment, tweet or send.  Then comes the mad rush to figure out how to save the situation. At least when it came to my books, people are required to plunk down money before they can see my blunders (granted, this makes them extra mad, but the… Read more »

My road trip is going to help save the planet

I’m totally serious. When the thought of my Great North American Baseball Road Trip changed into probability (and shortly into reality), a friend of mine suggested I contact Major League Baseball or Subaru to see if they wanted to sponsor me.  Later on, other friends and relatives had the same idea, but this guy was… Read more »

Which social media fits a social misfit?

Yeah, we’re there.  Decision time. Okay, I’ve whittled it down to only two choices to help chronicle my daily adventures on the Great North American Baseball Road Trip.  Well, not really choices, because I have to probably use both, but here’s where I am: Facebook – I have lots more “followers” and an unlimited posting… Read more »

Hook me up

It seems like this is the year for me to be replacing stuff. Wear and tear appear to be catching up to me.  Even though my appliances are only six years old, I’ve had to pick up a new bottom rack for the dishwasher, a new gasket for the ice maker and now my oven… Read more »

It’s not always good to Excel

I’ve spent a lot of time working on the planning, details and checking on my Great North American Baseball Road Trip (GNABRT).  When you plan something this involved, it pays to give extra scrutiny to the minutiae. That doesn’t always work well for others. While I wouldn’t go as far as to call myself a… Read more »

More like a brief hug

As usual, a thought occurred to me while out on my daily walk.  (It’s fortunate two thoughts don’t occur to me — I’m not sure I could walk and think that much at the same time.) Here I am, attempting to extend my walking distance each week without knowing exactly how far I’m walking.  Sure, I’ve… Read more »

Roadside assistance

The second-to-last post on my upcoming Great North American Baseball Road Trip… This is going to be a long trip.  A lonnnnggg trip. Beyond the logistics, beyond the endurance, beyond all of that, I’m going to need some assistance along the way to pull this off. That’s where, hopefully, local friends will come in. Now,… Read more »
