Believe the GPS: Low bridge, everybody down.

Originally posted to ontheroadagainagaon.com on September 23, 2016 Question to ponder: When did the United States of America change from plural to singular? Entering the U.S. at a remote point with minimal traffic seemed like a good idea – a charming experience with the same low key approach to life I’d been enjoying for the past sixContinue reading “Canada to the United States – and the day in Maine”

Thanks to all the angels in the world

Originally posted to ontheroadagainagain on August 28, 2016 You may or may not believe in angels. As a child I did. Of course as an adult I knew better. But now I’m not so sure. Today I was headed for Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia. If the beauty of the park comparedContinue reading “Thanks to all the angels in the world”

On the road again . . . at 75

Originally posted to ontheroadagainagain.com on May 5, 2016 After 2½ weeks of hopscotching around the country celebrating my 75th, it felt strange to be back home (in the Ark). My road trip started two months ago from home in Arkansas but was interrupted by flights to both coasts with a couple stops in the middle.Continue reading “On the road again . . . at 75”

You know you’re getting old when . . .

Almost everyone knows that before investing in a new business idea it’s not only a good idea to make a plan, in most cases it’s required. But many don’t realize how important it is to have not one but three plans. Instead of “Good,Continue reading “Business planning? Do it three times.”

If you’re serious about getting it right . . .

Originally posted to ontheroadagainagain.com on October 27, 2014 To consistently achieve excellent results, test your work or process in a way as completely different from the original thinking as possible – ideally with no two points in common other than the beginning and the outcome.

The Oak Ridge Boys

Originally posted to ontheroadagainagain.com on October 24, 2014 Traveling alone as I do sometimes has advantages. Like when you want a last minute ticket to a show there’s often one available in the center of the fourth row. Woohoo!  In only a couple hours the Oak Ridge Boys made me feel like we were friendsContinue reading “The Oak Ridge Boys”

Is stubbornness a bad thing?

Originally posted to ontheroadagainagain.com on October 22, 2014 One of the features I dreamed of in GrandpaLyle’s Ark was truly modern technology. All of my iGadgets talking to each other and displaying on a flat-screen TV with surround sound and a power sub-woofer. Cool, eh? All it would take was a trip to the toyContinue reading “Is stubbornness a bad thing?”
