Feeding the Soul
"Don't put off until tomorrow the things that you may then be unable to do."
Over the years life has presented me with opportunities to engage in a personal exploration. These explorations have extended far beyond my professional life and have been physical, emotional, familial, and even spiritual. While these personal investigations are usually quite private, there are some that are more public. They have included extensive travel, bluewater sailing, Atlantic Ocean sailing passages upon a small vessel, and now the adventure of retirement. The following are a few of the pursuits which I share with you.
The Grand North American Tour, Seeking Neverland!
Beginning May, 2015, my wife and I embark upon a journey that will cover 49 States, at least 7 Provinces in Canada, and ultimately the Arctic Circle. This exploration of North America will be staged in segments varying in length from 4 to 8 weeks. Our home away from home will be our 17 foot Casita camping trailer, "Rigel" ( http://casitatraveltrailers.com/ ), towed by our Toyota Highlander, "Second Star".
When Peter Pan was asked how to find Neverland, he replied, "Second star to the right, straight on til morning." This is the theme of our journey... to stay young at heart and seek Neverland. Follow our travels by reading the "Thoughts" section of this website. - Pete and Christine
The Camino de Santiago Compostela
In 2013 my wife and I walked the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. This 820 km pilgrimage dates back over 1,000 years and is one of the 3 great pilgrimage walks in Christianity. For me, this started out as a "bucket list" item, but it quickly developed into one of the richest personal experiences of my life. Again, I present here my journal notes and video.

Cycling for Change
In 2010 I was privileged to be one of 12 bicyclists who rode 5,000 miles accross the United States to raise awareness of the increase in poverty in this Country. This was known as Cycling for Change. My notes and video from that experience are presented here.
