The Neon Museum (Las Vegas, NV)

December 21, 2017 |

First learned about The Neon Museum on Instagram. Vegas is known for their bright lights so why not take homage to it’s historic neon light history?! I only wish we were in Las Vegas in the summer months so we could enjoy a warmer visit in the evening. We opted for a tour after we visited The Mob Museum closeby. Read More

Review: Iron Blosam Lodge (Snowbird, Utah)

December 9, 2017 |

I’ve never been to Utah but follow IG: VisitUtah for quite some time with the lure of all their National Parks. Never would I imagine vacationing during winter. It would be Bill and my first ski trip. Plus, we were able to visit some family, too! Read More

Hidden Peak by Snowbird’s Aerial Tram (Snowbird, UT)

December 8, 2017 |

We were hoping to eat at The Summit (Snowbird’s mountaintop restaurant while enjoying views of snow-capped slopes and the Salt Lake Valley) but we didn’t realize in this early season that they were only open on weekends. Only opened in 1971, Snowbird’s Aerial Tram takes us on a 1.6 mile cable and up 2,900 vertical feet which takes about 10-minutes to reach the top of Hidden Peak – Elevation of 11,000 ft. Here I’ve captured some views of the experience. Read More

REVIEW: Zombie Farm Paintball Hayride

October 27, 2017 |

Our first Halloween in Florida and about 30 miles from home, we found a Zombie Paintball Hayride on the Smith Family Ranch, in Lakeland. The first time I heard about such an activity was on the Travel Channel. I don’t know if the episode was talking about Millers Thrillers (Spring Hill, TN), Night of Terror (New Jersey), or ScareFest (St. Louis, MO). Read More

REVIEW: Tampa Lowry Park Zoo

September 20, 2017 |

If you’re patient enough to stay in one place and observe the animals, you typically can witness some different behaviors on every visit… especially for any newborns (i.e. on our visit – the orangutan newborns) at the zoo. We have an annual pass… only $129 / 2-person and there’s so much to see still after only two(2) visits so far this season. There hasn’t been a crowd yet as we’ve visited on weekdays. Read More

Review: Croc Encounters – Reptile Park and Wildlife Center (Tampa, Florida)

June 3, 2017 |

Croc Encounters is a non-profit conservation and educational facility that provides a sanctuary to unwanted reptiles. On a Saturday morning, we drove 25-minutes from home to enjoy some time with the reptile world. It was a self-guided tour where we were given some turtle food and the opportunity to take a picture with a 3-ft to 4-ft baby gator. Read More

Solution: Get your Photos off your iPad without iTunes or Image Capture

April 13, 2017 |

I still have my iPad 2 (Model: A1396) and have had such headaches with iTunes and Image Capture not recognizing that I do indeed have GBs worth of photos and videos on my iPad. Yes – All my software is up-to-date: Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6, iTunes 12.6.0.100, and Image Capture 6.7… yet, these applications don’t recognize the photos or videos on the iPad. So what’s the solution? Read More

Explore Hawaii: DJI Mavic Drone Footage – Surfing Our Home Break

February 17, 2017 |

Only my 5th time playing around with my new DJI Mavic mustering up the courage to fly it over water. The Mavic isn’t waterproof. Before this day, I’ve been immersing myself watching drone video how-to’s on YouTube. Read More
