Burgers in the Bluegrass…

It has been more than a month since my last blog post.  My only excuse is that I have been really busy on the little “Farm.”  Since returning from “Road-Trip” 2014, I have been working on numerous projects, repairing a retaining wall, sealcoating a patio and carport, cutting grass, trimming trees, splitting firewood, getting the tractor running, etc… etc… just a few of the projects that have occupied most of my time.  I want to get as much work done as possible before the big-freeze arrives.  Anyone who knows Kentucky weather knows that the arrival of old man Winter may come as early as late October.  Until then…the “Fall” in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky remains my favorite time of the year!  The temperatures drop to a comfortable level, the humidity is low and the autumn colors along the Kentucky River come to life!

In addition to numerous projects on the Farm, I spent a week in Ohio and Michigan visiting my mother and older brother.  They are doing well and we enjoyed some time together!  I also spent the day at Michigan State University where a niece and nephew are now students!  It’s always great to visit “Sparty-Land” and even better when family is there!

On the Farm it hasn’t been all work, I managed to have a few cookouts and enjoy some burgers in the Bluegrass with friends!

I also took advantage of the cooler temperatures to cut and split some firewood for the wood-burning stove!

Having a few acres has been a lot like home ownership… there are always some projects to do….

I will spend the next few months working on the Big-Ole-Mare, aka B.O.M. …. better know as my Honda XR650L.  I’m learning more about critical maintenance on the ole-gal as I prepare for Motorcycle Road-Trip 2015… to the land of Aztecs, Mayans and Incas!

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
