Visit Ronald Reagan Presidential Library On Your California Road Trip

Visit Ronald Reagan Presidential Library

I don’t remember much from when Ronald Reagan was President, but I did recall a few things before I decided to visit the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library with my kids on our latest California road trip. Elementary-school-me thought he was funny, he reminded me of my Grandpa, and that he was possibly the strongest person in the world beyond Superman …

road trip to disneyland 2017

Over the past 8 years I’ve been taking a two to three week summer road trip to Disneyland with my family of six. Do you know the most important thing I’ve learned? The difference between a road trip and a really long drive isn’t the hours you put in on the road; it’s the stops you make along the way. …

California road trip from Vancouver: 2017

I’m not sure if anyone noticed, but I had taken a leave of absence from the blog for awhile. We had just moved to the farm, were knee deep in renovations, and something had to give before I cracked up. Now that my reno is almost done, I’ve got a farm yard full of animals, and I’m pretty happy with …

Travel Virtually With The Laguna Beach Web Cam

I’m back after a long hiatus of renovations, remodels, and adjusting to a farmhouse lifestyle. From getting used to pine instead of drywall to an invasion of mice that my lazy cats won’t seem to take care of, it’s been an adventure. But summer is looming, and with that summer vacation. We took a vacation from our regular California summer …

Disneyland food, plug in version

I write a weekly column on Best Buy Canada’s community site, and this week we’re talking Disneyland’s treats and eats. I used to be one of those people who hauled in my own food and left the park to go eat somewhere else after a long day, but I slowly discovered that eating elsewhere made no sense when there was …

Hotel reviews – Cozy up to the Residence Inn Tustin

Residence Inn Tustin

There aren’t very many times I’d use the word ‘cozy’ when it comes to a hotel. Hotels are usually nice, clean, and sterile looking, designed to welcome you in and welcome you back out again. After all, if you’re only staying a night or two, you don’t need cozy. You need functional. But cozy is exactly what I’d call the …

Road Trip Planner – Dodge Grand Caravan is the best vehicle for the drive

Arizona Colleges Are Just Saying No To Binge Drinking And Tailgating

Driving from Vancouver to Disneyland takes stamina, patience, and a seriously reliable vehicle. This isn’t a drive for the faint of heart, because you’ll encounter flats, forests, and mountains, plus possibly some of the worst highway traffic I’ve ever seen on a road that’s supposed to be 120km/70 miles per hour speed limit. I’ve done the drive on the I5 …

Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel Review

disneyland-grand-californian-hotel-review

This Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel Review is a re-post of a review from my old blog, but it’s worth a read if you’re heading to the Anaheim area. The year was 1978 and I was 7 years old. I had just flown (back when you could smoke on airplanes, I remember there was a haze the entire time!) from Saskatchewan …
