Landwhale Travel Tales – St. Augustine, FL (Part 1)

I've found that when you start to feel old, the trick is to hang around people or things that are older than you. St. Augustine, FL, for instance, is the oldest city in the United States, and thus older than me. I'm okay with that. This past weekend, in the middle of March (which also is South Florida's spring break period), we managed to snag

Landwhale Travel Tales – Medieval Times

And though the price of steem may rise and fall, the value of a memory remains the same. Let's invest in memories! The most stable currency available. A couple weeks ago, the wife and I bought some memories at Medieval Times, near Orlando in South FL. For those not familiar with their brand of dinner theater, you get to watch a roughly 90 minute show

Camping in Style – Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground

Ok, sometimes my Landwhale likes to roll around in the mud, and sometimes it wants to mix in with the fancy six-figure land yachts of the rich and famous. Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground offers plenty of chances for the latter, and it's far too clean for the former (although during my off-road bike riding I did ride through some dog poop; where do I file

No Snow in South Florida – Walking around Green Cay

While the rest of the USA is covered under a blanket of snow or sitting in the ditch after just sliding off the highway, I'm walking around nature preserves in South Florida. Yes, this counts as showing off. It's been raining a lot lately, which means the canals and ponds and preserves are full of water. And life. A couple months ago we came to

First Sunrise of 2019

Ok, not actually the first sunrise of 2019. It's January 18th, so there have probably been at least 17 sunrises prior to this morning. That said, I'm breaking my long (in internet time) hiatus from posting to ... post a sunrise. Not surprisingly, it's taken at a beach near our home in South Florida. Unrelatedly, it's nice to be alive. Amidst all the transient ebb

Trapper Keeper :: 50 Word Short Story

Prompted this morning by @jayna's prompting, I promptly assembled a story for her 50 Word Short Story Contest with the prompt of 'bells'. I've been remiss in my entries as of late, but since I have a slow period this morning in my work day I felt I could fit one in. Since the best stories feature something that the author has actually felt, seen,

Equestrian Camping – Lake Panasoffkee, FL

So the wife and I traveled the long and arduous miles from Florida to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving last week. About 1600 miles one way, probably ended up at about 3500 miles of total driving during that week. That's a lot. We did, however, pay nothing in hotel costs. Our first day of travel was essentially just a night, where we traveled about four hours from

Elections are Finally Over…Time to Move On

For those in the USA, we've been inundated with election information. Commercials on tv, flyers in the mail, Facebook posts aggressively promoting their candidate and tearing down the other. But as of Tuesday, it's all over. The voting is over. All the signs and billboards will go away. My Spotify feed is no longer going to be filled with virulent acid in between songs on

Now That Everyone is Away at Steemfest…

Is this the time we can party and burn the place down? One wonders what blockchain activity looks like when all the power players are off in Poland enjoying each others company and imbibing in mass quantities of liquor. Does all the schmoozing result in upvotes on recent posts—the modern equivalent of exchanging business cards?—or is everyone too busy being social and acting like real

Twilights and Sunrises

So I'm sitting here working, deleting rows out of a database and waiting for the database server to catch up. Might as well write a steemit post, right? Historically, I've been treating my steemit posts as some major epiphany, some display of amazingness that I need to share with the world. With the price of steemit fairly low and the activity on the blockchain (or
