Baby boomer; empty nester; travel junkie. Now that I've launched the youngest, I have more time for me and what I love. Two things at the top of that list are traveling and writing. My goal here is to write about things I see, learn, and experience while traveling with my hubby and dog in our camper van. Sometimes, I will also opine on an array of social issues, because I feel the topic is important. Often, the two will overlap. Enjoy (or not).

The brutalities against blacks during Jim Crow were not limited to the South as evident by the “necktie party” that occurred in Duluth 100 years ago.

Last summer, my husband and I traveled along the River Valley National Scenic Byway where we saw several monuments dedicated to the US-Dakota War of 1862, a six week battle commonly referred to as The Other Civil War. A very important event in US history that I knew nothing about.
