  • Shamefully, I haven't read "Deliverance" since high school, which is weird because I like the man's poetry so much- "The Sheep-Child", and "Deer Among Cattle" are among my favorite poems. I'll take [...]read » ncfrommke

Farewell, into the wild. . .

I write my last post for True/Slant a bit worn out from a full day of kayaking yesterday. It was easy river kayaking, mainly, with just one madly technical section of Class 2 stuff, but a full day of paddling and some porting in the sun saps you a bit. The [...]

Exit, laughing

My real 'goodbye' starts and ends here. It's just after 1pm in Budapest, which I suppose means around 7am in New York city, and another 18 hours before... what? I'm not really sure. Does the site just disappear offline with a trace? It seems hard to believe. Curmudgeonly old bastard that I [...]

Moving Mom & Dad -- abroad

Retirement village? Assisted living? Co-housing? Age-restricted or aging-in-place communities? Inter-generational cooperative? This space has explored many of the growing varieties of housing choices for boomers and elders when the time comes to downsize, rightsize, clear out or economize. Here's a new one that's making the news: think global. Even with (and [...]

Out of focus, fading to black?

In November 2008, this so-called Jet-Set Hobo was in Buenos Aires when he filed his first story for True/Slant. It was called 'From Argentina with Love', and was in some way concerned with what was the new James Bond movie, 'A Portion of Condolence'.  If there was any actual film [...]

It's been a fun ride filled with love, hate and whatever's in between. I'm honored to have been here from the start, and I'm glad to end on a high note. Catch me at Caveat Viator and/or find me on Twitter. -Koyen

In response to Travel writer hurts publisher's feelings; publisher bans all travel writers on LinkedIn
  • Like this is the first time an a--hole went out looking for writers? The non-jerks are the ones I am thrilled to find, and hang onto as clients for years. There are way too many of the former.read » T/S CAITLIN KELLY

  • NCfromMKE -- Thanks for the interesting details. I've not ever had a bison steak, but would surely try it. I think I had a bison burger once. Probably not the same.read » T/S SCOTT BOWEN

What do you think will happen when folks scamper after a full-grown bison and someone throws a stick at him to get his attention?

The Pleasure Of Solo Travel

There are couples who boast that they have never spent a night apart.  Cue violins! I think: Shoot me. Just shoot me. I think every long-term couple needs serious time apart. Granted, this is much more difficult if you have kids, especially  very small ones, when time without another person's labor can [...]
