Back on the road of Adventure


sunny 100 °F

Tomorrow we heading south. Back to Panama for another look around in this beautiful Central American country. We completely enjoyed our stay in Panama back in February so when the opportunity came to go again we decided to do it.

The house sitter is all set, Zoey (our dog) is back at the Aughinbaugh Spa in Lakewood having the time of her life. We're packed, but my camera gear is still spread all over the floor of my office getting cleaned and prepped. Boarding passes have been printed; we've been wait list to first class from Denver to Houston and already upgraded to first class from Houston to Panama City. Free drinks.

We plan of visiting Bocas Del Toros, the Kuna Indian area along the Caribbean side of Panama, the Darien area on the Pacific side of the country, and lots of smaller venues in Panama. If anyone has any suggestions of where else we should go let us know. We up for anything.

Currently it is over 100 degrees here in Fruita, CO and very very dry. The Colorado river is at a hundred year low. The front range of CO is a burning inferno. In Panama it is 85 degrees, raining daily, and humid. Obviously, a very different climate. We'll be praying for our friends on the front range while we visit our other friends in Panama.

Please return to this blog regularly. Pictures and verbage will flow freely for this adventure.

Return to CONUS

Fifty-two great days of adventure

sunny 38 °F

We returned to the continental United States (CONUS) on March 2nd, landing in Houston and immediately clearing customs to make our connection to Denver. It was a long travel day, starting in Panama City, then a four hour layover in San Jose, Costa Rica and finally our connections to the US. Departing Panama it was 85 degrees F, arriving in Denver it was 19 degrees F. This is/was the weekend that United Airlines and Continental Airlines are merging their computer systems and we heard warnings about possible travel problems. Nothing happened that effected our flights. We've spent two nights in Denver and today we pick up our dog and head to Fruita. Home by sunset.

We've taken over 5500 pictures, met an incredible number of wonderful people, seen some beautiful sights, experienced a tremendous variety of foods, enjoyed the noises of the jungle, the beaches, and the cities all of which have helped make this trip exceptional. Over the next few days/weeks we'll post a few more photos, write a few comparsion and final thought articles for the blog. Please check back once and a while.
