Every once in awhile I come across a video that just resonates with me…I mean everyone should watch this especially if you are an adventurer. This guy Ed from New Mexico rode 10,000 miles in 26 days and how he sees Canada and Alaska is spot on. I LOVE, absolutely LOVE his attitude, sense of humor….I mean everything about his heart and soul. I really hope everyone who takes a look at this post takes the time to sit back and watch….it is soooooo worth it trust me.
I think this is my most favorite ADV video I have seen so far….and I loved seeing where we went through his eyes….BRAVO!

I am very rarely at a loss of words but when it comes to attending my first dog memorial I seem to be. I have tried to write this post numerous times but it never came out right. So, what I have done is post pictures of this special day in February, made a video as tribute to my friend/colleague Sandi and a quote Sandi said to me….I was honored and really touched. We have three dogs and will inevitably experience this loss.
Final resting place
This is a special post…please scroll down, take a look at the pictures and read the little story. Then, pay tribute and watch the short video. Best in HD and wide screen. I know many of the readers of this BLOG can relate. The love we have for our pets is a very personal relationship but in the end I think we all feel the same way when they have to leave us.

The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun’s disk disappears below the horizon in the west. There are few things in nature as photogenic as the sky at sunset, especially animals. The rich bright gold, pink and orange colors make unusually beautiful pictures of animals illuminated by the sun.
