Michelin First Car Moment

This post is about cars but it’s also about photos; those we have, those we don’t, and those we’ll see in our mind’s eye until the end of days. A photogenic memory isn’t something I could legitimately claim to have. I’d be found out the minute someone asked me to […]

Live From Camp Invention 2015!

Summer Road Trip Prep with Ristorante Pizza

There are approximately a zillion and a half things to be done before I successfully get my wife and two daughters out the door to start our summer vacation: Did I remember sunscreen? The tangle of charging cables for all the different devices? Bathing suits? Pillows? Our National Parks pass? […]
