Tuesday Travelogue November 4th

By
Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our eighteenth  week! Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:

 

" to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

 and hopefully much more!

(Be sure and click on the links in blue.)

Today I decided to work my way through some of the United States that start with the letter "A".

Look how inviting the Apache Trail is! Located in Arizona, Brian England takes us on a quick trip. Bring your lunch! I've just discovered him in "Local Info"...so make sure you post in your localism category for pictorial posts!

Brian England Apache Trail in Arizona

For those of you who don't want to "walk" a trail, try taking your motorcyle on one! Nick Pappas took a much needed day off and went along the "Sunset Trail". Located in Alabama. 

A good reminder that we need to "clear the cobwebs" by getting outdoors and away from work!

 

Lake Guntersville, Alabama

This is a bit of a departure, reaching into Local Info archives (December 2008), and I'll guarantee you that you haven't read this before. Alabaster Alabama has a really cool place and I love the story that Valerie Springer tells...Lonesome Dove, Alabaster and Uncle Bill. I wanna go there!

I tried to find cool localism posts with photos from Arkansas (James Dray are you listening?), but couldn't. Too bad, because there are some Springs and National Parks that would have been great to spotlight. 

Oh, well, so I moved onto Alaska! Ketchickan AK to be specific.  I've actually been there and it's filled with Alaskan history. Elizabeth Weintraub took this trip back in August of 2013.

Dick Greenberg I am thrilled that these are all new to you! Just like your Grab Bag, a little of this, a little of that...a little something for everyone.

Karen Fiddler, Broker/Realtor I would be feeling just like you if I hadn't taken the plunge last year and said, I'm GOING TO MY 40TH HIGH SCHOOL REUNION, come hell or high water and I did! Ended up combining it with a much needed visit with my mom and sister up at our beloved cottage at the Thousand Islands...a monumentally fantastic lovefest of family! And I reignited my friendship with my high school best friend to boot! Book'em, Dano!

Wow what fun starting with the letter A Gayle, this process may take some time if you can find something for all 26 letters...

Gayle- another benefit of ActiveRain... being able to travel via our fellow members here.  I like your idea of traveling through our states and beginning with "A"

Hi Gayle, the one thing I like about Active Rain is I get to see places I've never been. I love reading about the members and where they live.

Well, now, Gary Woltal and Kathy Streib I'm not trying to start a trend here...that would put too much pressure on me! It was just a "theme" which changes on a whim! 

Rebecca Gaujot, the GO TO REALTOR this has opened up a whole new world for me to discover fellow Rainers past and present. It's been an absolute DELIGHT!

I'm listening and I heard you loud and clear.  Give me a day or two I know I have some photos I can post.  The issue is finding them and then figuring out how to post them...

Bob Crane, since I focus on your wonderful travels so often and I needed to pick something from Alaska, I had to go find someone else besides you who went there AND talked about it!

Joe Petrowsky wasn't sure what I was going to come up with to be honest. There are times when I have plenty to choose from...I had to get creative!

James Dray how exciting! I look forward to it and if you want some help, I can talk you through it (gee, I've only done it a FEW times....)!

Sharon Paxson even the really old posts are fun! I often wonder what's happened to those who don't blog anymore....

Gayle, thanks for the shout out! I do know Elizabeth Weintraub, but will check out the others. That ride I went on was what I needed and hated to see it end...the guy I rode with was also a client making it more meaningful.
