We rolled into Santa Fe around 2pm and got settled at a KOA park. Searching for something to do, we discovered the Santa Fe Institute was hosting the annual Interplanetary Festival - focused on the challenges we face to become an interplanetary species. And yes, it was as strange as it sounds. A fantastic mix up of science, science fiction, and art.

We always have a million “last minute” reasons why we can’t leave but we always seem to sort things out and get on our way. This Spring was no different, with both planned and unexpected obstacles but we can report that as of 10:30 CST, June 3rd we are on our way!
Our travel plans this summer will focus on the Rockies. Charles, Tucker, and I will start with a week in Santa Fe and then slowly move north in search of an elevation that keeps us at a comfy 75 degrees. Of course we’ll dip down occassionally to catch some ‘not to be missed’ state and national parks. Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and maybe Montana are on our list but if we find a spot we love we might just stay there all summer.
This week we’ll do a few one night stops from here to Santa Fe with the first stop being Biloxi. Not only is it an easy 4 hour ride from Destin, there’s a craps table at Hard Rock casino that owes me some money!
Share with us your favorite spots along the way - we love finding fun new places to visit!

Today we headed to Bridgeport Newfoundland to see a rare sight - the first iceberg to migrate into their harbor in 35 years. It was not there.
We met a nice guy carrying a lobster down the street and he said "It's still out there, sure enough. Around the corner. I'll call my son and he'll take you to see it." We said OK (of course) and headed for the harbor. We met Dwayne Canning there and he took us straight away on his 14 ft dory.
When we got just outside the main harbor, the iceberg was sitting there doing what icebergs do - melting slowly and making a lot of cracking noises. The weather has been hot the last few days so this berg is getting small fast. We're so happy we met Dwayne (and his Dad) and got the chance to see this berg up close!
