Pennsylvania visit 2017 - Doing all the things!

In 2017 we were in PA for all the Halloween fun! Really it was one of the busiest visits to PA we have had! We went on the Lancaster Ghost Tour on Halloween which I loved! Fulton Opera House is supposed to be super haunted

As well as lots of other places around the city. We heard some fun ghost stories

While we were there Raymond asked "Where are the covered bridges?" So after shopping one day we drove by one so he could see it



So much fun



My mom taking photos of us taking photos





One day we went to the Corn Maze! 

At the start - still wearing our jackets as we hadn't warmed up yet. It is surprisingly warm in the maze

Finding a box with a piece of the maze puzzle

Plotting and planning

Last year was Charlotte's Web themed

And we did it! We had the fastest time that day when we went through

We found some Halloween crackers at the thrift store and I love how intense I look about them!

We also did an escape room! My first one!

I know it is a bad photo, but the only one I have of the 5 of us pre-scape. With my mom, sister, mom's friend, and us

We were tasked with finding this flag - and we did it! I really enjoyed this! Though it was good Raymond was with us as for one of the tasks we had to slingshot beanbags through a window into the second room and hit something on the other side of the room...and Raymond was the only one who could make it across the room!

We also went to trivia one night - I like the trivia in Lancaster as it is one question at a time and all individual answers so if you don't agree with your team you can write what you want. Then all the correct answers go in a box to win candy periodically! Win!

We also got to visit my cousin Paula and her kids. With all of that plus all the shopping I had to do it was a very busy week! But really nice to get to spend time with my mom and sister and do all the things!

We are off!!

So Phillip and Dana were gracious enough to take us to the border on Friday afternoon and we started hiking! It has been amazing and fun and we have been meeting a lot of very nice people all over the place. On the second day we had this awful hike up a canyon that was just soooo hot and bleh and when we got to the top we met some people out day hiking who gave us ice water! It was amazing!! Anyways we cannot upload the audio or photos at the library here in Julian, so hopefully in Warner Springs we can get them up. The first days were really hot, but yesterday was freezing! We were very glad we had all of our gear with us as in the morning it was soooo cold and windy we had our hats and gloves and jackets and long underwear on. It was crazy how windy it was....literally blowing me over on the trail. I was glad I had my hiking poles as without them I am sure I would have fallen numerous times just due to the wind. We have been hiking pretty far the last 2 days, 15-16 miles each da

Railay Beach, Thailand - Day 1

  Getting to Railay Beach from Bangkok kind of takes forever. We had taken the overnight train from Bangkok to Surat Thai where we had to switch to a bus to take us to Krabi. I slept much better on the train that night. I had put in my earplugs and only woke up a few times. It was great. I woke up around 6 and was ready to go. Raymond was just like you are so wakey! I was just like yeah - I actually slept! So I was all refreshed and ready to go.    We had picked up some banana muffins in Bangkok for breakfast, as well as leftovers from our feast the night before, and the muffins were delicious! We should have gotten more of them than we did. So we got to Surat Thani and had to switch to a bus like I said. It was a bit confusing where we should go and what was going on, but we got on the bus and it took us into Surat Thani Town. That bus was really nice so I thought the trip to Krabi would be great. Only we had to wait a bit and switch buses and the new bus, the one that took us

Roller Derby World Cup, Manchester 2018

Last year was the roller derby world cup in Manchester! I love roller derby world cup! I love watching all the teams from all over the world and seeing how they have improved and oh it is so much fun!! Last year there were 38 teams! It was awesome. We got into Manchester at lunchtime and had a crazy big lunch at Mod's Vegan Cafe at the Thirsty Scholar which was delicious! Vegan English breakfast, a burger with fries and onion rings It was rainy so we didn't wander around much, but I made Raymond go out in the afternoon to check out The John Rylands Library which was super cool. And so many super old books! It is really the only sightseeing we did while in Manchester as we had so much derby to watch! Dinner at V Rev - soup, mac and cheese, and fired seitan plate - delicious! Waiting to get into roller derby - the line was sooooooo long! I should have printed off our tickets, but I forgot. It took over an hour to
