Seattle, Washington to the San Juan Islands

Thu, 05 May 2011 12:22:00 PST

(image) From Seattle to the San Juan Islands, take the long way - the uncommon corridors. You won't regret it. From Seattle, head north on I-5 for Woodinville Wine Country. Don't miss the amazing Boeing Future of Flight Museum & Plant Tour before driving onto a Washington State Ferry bound for Whidbey Island at Mukilteo. Meander the length of the scenic island to Anacortes and catch the next ferry to the San Juan Islands...

Audio Book Review: The Reversal, by Michael Connelly

Thu, 05 May 2011 12:22:00 PST

(image) Mickey Haller is used to sitting on the left side of the courtroom, beside whatever defendant is currently paying for his expert legal counsel, but when the prosecutor's office asks him to be independent special prosecutor in the retrial of child molester and murderer, Jason Jessup, he can't refuse. Aside from the fact that he'll be assisted by his ex-wife Maggie McPherson, for whom he still has feelings, and his newly discovered half brother, Detective Harry Bosch, Mickey Haller accepts the assignment because after 24 years in prison, the evil Jessup is about to be released on bail...

Silver City, New Mexico to Gila Cliff Dwellings on the Trail of the Mountain Spirits

Thu, 05 May 2011 12:22:00 PST

(image) This picturesque and extraordinarily varied circular – or, more correctly, triangular route – makes its way north from historic Silver City through the dense woodland of Gila National Forest to the 13th-century dwellings of the Mogollon people. For the return journey, the Trail of the Mountain Spirits takes you through beautiful green rural countryside before turning west back to Silver City past the US's oldest copper mine...

Audio Book Review: Safe Haven, by Nicholas Sparks

Mon, 02 May 2011 15:21:00 PST

(image) How can you disappear in plain sight? Apparently Katie Feldman has figured it out, escaping an abusive marriage in Boston and reinventing herself as a waitress in a small coastal North Carolina town. She tries to keep to herself and avoid personal contact outside of work, but with her physical beauty and inherent kind and loving nature, that is impossible. She soon develops friendships with her neighbor, Jo, and with the children of the man who runs the general store where she buys her food...

Audio Book Review: Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand

Mon, 02 May 2011 15:21:00 PST

(image) At the close of the 1936 Olympics Louie Zamperini, an 18 year old track star from Los Angeles was considered to be the favorite for the 1940 Olympics. Many believed he would be the first to break the elusive 4 minute mile. When war broke out in Europe, the 1940 Olympics were cancelled and Louie's dreams were put on hold, but the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 permanently changed all that Louie had planned. He joined the Army Air Force and became a bombardier flying missions over Japan...

The Historic Columbia River Highway: Troutdale, Oregon to the Dalles

Sun, 03 Apr 2011 21:07:00 PST

(image) 'Majestic' is the adjective that springs most readily to mind when describing this most scenic of byways (which is actually split into two separate sections). Steep hills and cliffs rise up from the broad waters of the Columbia and you'll find your drive being constantly interrupted by the temptation to follow a trail to a waterfall or stop off at a viewing point...

Big Sur: Road Trip on the Edge

Tue, 15 Mar 2011 14:05:00 PST

(image) The 90 miles or so of coastal highway south of Carmel, California are, arguably, the most iconic of all American drives. Familiar from book and film, Highway 1 clings to the edge of the country, carrying the driver from dune to forest, past Pacific breakers, towering cliff top views and more than one man-made wonder. This is Big Sur, up there with the world's greatest coastal drives...

Audio Book Review: This Time Together, by Carol Burnett

Tue, 15 Mar 2011 14:05:00 PST

(image) For years Carol Burnett filled people's homes with hours of pure down to earth comedy, closing her shows with her signature song, 'I'm So Glad We Had This Time Together.' Now in this book she relives not only many of the humorous moments the public saw on television, but she exposes intimate details about her personal life and her friendships with some top figures in the entertainment world...

Audio Book Review -- The Jaguar Stones, Book Two: The End of the World Club

Tue, 15 Mar 2011 14:05:00 PST

(image) When his Boston home mysteriously takes on the atmosphere of a tropical rain forest, complete with poisonous insects, moss-bedecked walls and oppressive heat and humidity, Max is forced to acknowledge his deepest fear - the lords of death of the Mayan underworld are going to hold him to his promise to help them. To appease them, he must find the last Jaguar Stone, the yellow one, and deliver it to Xibalba. It's not bad enough that he must solve a riddle in order to know where to begin looking, but he has only seven days in which to find the yellow prize and get it to the underworld...

Fifteen Years Behind the Wheel

Mon, 14 Feb 2011 22:11:00 PST

(image) Fifteen years ago, on the afternoon of February 14th, 1996, sprang to life on the World Wide Web. We had registered the domain name a couple of months earlier, after which we immersed ourselves in the strange new language of HTML. We had also shelled out a thousand bucks for a Kodak DC 50 digital camera, a funny-looking black plastic box that could take pictures – wonder of wonders – without film. Set on "highest resolution," the thing could store a whopping seven tiny images in its internal memory...

Romancing the Road: Tips for Couples on a Roll

Thu, 10 Feb 2011 12:11:00 PST

(image) Headed down the road, wind in your hair, your honey by your side - what could be more romantic? Not much. At least not until a tire blows and the bickering starts over who left the jack behind. And nothing squelches romance quite like a string of "No Vacancy" signs. Road trips take work, especially if you want romance en route. Here's some advice before you ride into the sunset...

Audio Book Review -- At Home: A Short History of Private Life

Thu, 27 Jan 2011 10:30:00 PST

(image) Most of us take our homes for granted, finding comfort in a familiar ambiance created by months, years or even generations of living in a house or apartment without examining how or why that comfort evolved. Bill Bryson opens our eyes to the rich cultural history of the past that resides in a typical home. Granted the typical home for Bill Bryson is a 19th century English parsonage, but the facts he reveals and discusses could be applied universally. As he takes the listener from room to room in his home, he chronicles a history of private life by discussing the architecture of the rooms, their various uses and the items found in them. The result is a fascinating account of everything from salt to sex...

Marathon to Mark via Big Bend National Park, Texas

Mon, 03 Jan 2011 20:10:00 PST

(image) This memorable drive begins by heading south through dramatic desert country, then enters Big Bend National Park, with its spectacular mountains, massive canyons and the Rio Grande itself. From here the Texas River Road passes by Terlingua Ghost Town - try to break your journey here - then traces the Rio Grande's route through extraordinarily scenic border country. The final leg of this route heads north to Marfa, renowned for its gastro culture...
