    While taking a break from a day of filming in New York City, we encountered Sting walking his dalmatian in Central Park.  Without being too conspicuous, we were able to capture some footage with a cell phone.We believe that Sting’s dog has a very small bladder – just sayin’.

  • The Liberace Museum

    The Liberace Museum

    Heading out of Las Vegas early on a Sunday morning we accidentally drove up on a piece of Americana, the Liberace Museum. Another serendipitous MidLife Moment. We were early, but it didn’t matter because we knew we  would be first in line to see all the glitz, glamor and opulence that was Liberace! Sadly, this was the very last day it would be open. Due to the economic downturn and decline in visitors the Liberace […]

  • Alaska ~ Mount McKinley

    Alaska ~ Mount McKinley

    Shortly after we settled into the Denali Princess Lodge, we took a short ride to the airfield where  we met our escorts from Princess Cruises and hopped on a 1966 Beaver Plane and headed towards the summit! Sure, Mt. Everest is the highest point on earth, but Mount McKinley’s vertical rise is nearly 6000 feet higher than Mount Everest from base to summit (Everest sits on the Tibetan Plateau which is17,000 feet above sea level […]

  • Alaska ~ Denali by Rail

    Alaska ~ Denali by Rail

    Our day began on rail with a train ride from Fairbanks to Denali. After a wonderful breakfast (Reindeer sausage and salmon burrito) aboard the train, we went upstairs to the glass covered rail car where we took in the breathtaking scenery. Our tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable of Alaskan history and geography. They always seemed to know exactly where we were as they give us notice of various photo opportunities in advance. We saw a HUGE […]

    We began our two week extraordinary Princess Cruise adventure by flying to Fairbanks, where we stayed the night a the The Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge. The first leg of this magnificent adventure was a riverboat tour of the Chena and Tanana Rivers, where the captain let me pilot the riverboat for about a mile!! Sooo Much fun! Along the way we saw an Athabascan fish camp and a kennel that trains future Iditarod champions that […]

  • Ritz Carlton Phoenix

    Ritz Carlton Phoenix

    Just because you’re on the road, you don’t have to “rough it.” The first thing you notice about a stay at the Ritz Carlton is the attention to detail and service. Every staff member is truly happy to see you and genuinely eager to please you. While customer service is a dying art, I can assure you it’s alive and thriving at the Ritz Carlton. A recent MidLife Road Trip to Phoenix found the Ritz Carlton Camelback […]
