Technically, there is a closer brewery — 3 Herons — but they don’t sell beer (yet). Ithaca Beer has been selling beer since the late ’90s. Their most famous brews are Apricot Wheat and Nut Brown. Both are delicious. But there’s more. Just after we moved to Trumansburg, Ithaca Beer opened their newly-constructed taproom, restaurant, and brewing facility. It’s amazing. It’s huge. We’ve been there three times already and I […]

Polygamy, Stress, Dreamliners and more!

First, I can’t believe we missed this: The Polygamous Rockland Ranch in Utah. It’s near Moab. Writer Dave Seminara even stops at Love Muffin Cafe before his visit! Remind me, why is Lisa in love with Utah? Oh, right. This stuff. Meanwhile, Ayngelina over at Bacon is Magic learned what we learned — London is very cool. Lisa and I were talking about London food the other day — we both miss The […]

Finding a good burger in a city is easy. There’s Dick’s in Seattle, Kopp’s in Milwaukee, In-N-Out across the Southwest, and Culver’s everywhere in the Midwest. But there’s something about being in the middle of nowhere and finding a great burger place. A cheeseburger in paradise is wonderful, but a cheeseburger in the boondocks is even better. Here are my six favorites: 6. Sebastian’s Store — Hearst Beef Burgers Sebastian’s […]

Last April, we soaked up the sun and salt water at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park on Florida’s Gulf Coast. This area is called the Forgotten Coast, but…cue corny joke…we won’t be forgetting it anytime soon. We’re looking forward to returning soon to explore more of the Forgotten Coast and to gobble up our share of the area’s seafood. Here’s a look back at our favorite photos from this beautiful part of Florida:

It’s not 2012 anymore. Dammit. That was a good year, wasn’t it? Here are our 5 most popular posts from last year: Travel Laptop Recommendations. Thank you, Google. Some readers even bought one. I’ll have to revisit this again now that CES is happening. Decaying Detroit Photos. I have no idea why I love this town so much. It’s another world. The Third World. About Us.

How to travel … forever.

We want to keep traveling, that’s no secret. We’re not itching to return to commutes and commitments. We want to see more of the world, man. There’s so much more to see! So, how to do it? We don’t really know … yet. But we think we should have a home base, an axis to pivot around, something more than a storage closet. And that makes things complicated. When you […]

The 6 things that are keeping me inspired right now

It’s hard to stay inspired. I’m working on a book about our trip (it’s going to be more of a how-to guide and less of a memoir) but I promised myself I wouldn’t give in to the old cliche and complain about how hard it is to write. So that’s why I’m saying that it’s hard to stay inspired. When working out of your own head, it’s such a challenge […]

Enough moaning, time to start planning. Here are the places in the running for a Q1 Driving Inertia visit: New York (Manhattan and Brooklyn). We’ve never been to Brooklyn minus passing through it on the way to Manhattan. 2013 is our year. This one has to happen in January before our Chicago buddies head back to Chicago.  Florida. We want to get back to the St. Joseph peninsula, get some self-serve […]
