A quick pic with my Dad on Father’s Day and stepmom, Judy, at their Iowa home before hitting the road again. The day before, we drove the 15 hours straight and arrived in the evening to a feast of homemade pizza!
We arrived in Nebraska, at my Mom’s and stepdad, Tim, house several hours later and had another barbecue feast there with my sister and her kids too!

Western Wonderland Roadtrip
On the way back to Virginia, we stopped to see all of my immediate family members, each in a different town. My sister and her family were in Ogallala, Nebraska. My Mom and my stepdad, Tim, in Grand Island, Nebraska. And my Dad and Judy in Ionia, Iowa.
Here is my childhood home in Dunkerton, Iowa. I lived in the house, with my parents from age 5 to 8.
Taking a trip out west to visit friends and family for Xams and also visit the outdoor wonders I miss.
The first stop — to see my only friend from high school, Tim. He’s more like family to me. He makes breakfast at his home outside of Lincoln.
