We are two engineers who call (Greater) Chicago, IL, US their home. Our part time pursuit includes trying new food and exploring new places. Our escapades include cruising with whales in Atlantic (Cape Cod, MA), watching killer whales in wild in Bellingham Bay (San Juan Islands, WA), driving on highest continuous paved road in the States (Trail Ridge Road, CO), visiting the first National Park in the world (Yellowstone, WY,MT,ID), jet skiing through confluence of Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico (Key West, FL), hiking 14000 feet Longs Peak in Rockies (CO) and living on water villas in middle of Indian Ocean (Lankanfinolhu, Maldives).
Needless to say, we want to add more to this. Our bucket list includes 50 states of US, 29 states of India, 6 continents, 4 Oceans, 7 wonders, a desert on each continent, straddle the Equator at La Mitad del Mundo and it goes on and on.
"There can be nothing in the world more beautiful than the Yosemite, the groves of the giant sequoias and redwoods, the Canyon of the Colorado, the Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Three Tetons; and our people should see to it that they are preserved for their children and their children's children forever, with their majestic beauty all unmarred." - Theodore Roosevelt
We love road trips especially the ones where I don't have to drive. Living in Chicago area, I have always wanted to drive next to the Mississippi. We did something close last weekend. Gladly the weather didnt play much of a spoil sport as you'd expect Midwest weather to. We didn't want to do the whole trip so we decided to do the Prarie Du Chen, WI to Winona, MN and back to Dubuque IA. This of course, like many of our plans, was left open to explore good views.
