  1. Disney Road Trip! Part 3 - Cabin Prep

    By now, we've got the vehicle physically ready and we prepared ourselves for the journey. There are some things that you still need to do in order to help with the journey itself. Some of these things may seem like common sense while others I'm sharing from experience. Regardless, before you pack item one it would be a good idea to get the inside of the car all ready.

  2. Disney Road Trip! Part 2 - Emergency Supplies

    Chance favors the prepared mind. Louis Pasteur

    As a second part of the Road Trip series, I thought I would share with you a list of things that I carry in my car to help take care of things that might come about during our road trip. I need to tell you up front, I do take quite a few things with me but I am going to split up this list into different categories of importance. Well, at least from my point of view.

Heck, considering many visitors to Walt Disney World can walk over 10 miles in a day on a regular basis, it should not be that big of a deal, right?

  5. Off Topic: The Olympics and Social Media

    Being a techno-geek myself, I am not going to slam anyone for tweeting or posting things on Facebook regarding what was going on with the Olympics from the past two weeks. Friends, media outlets, and even other people I follow within different communities were passing along a lot of the great news about how the USA was doing. It really shows how fast news can travel today.

    However, at the same time, I will say that the near-real-time nature of posting of Olympics news made it ...
