It's hard to imagine, but many years ago when I was not-so-outdoorsy, I created this blog to be about my travels. It was 2008 and I was inspired by a recent trip to Patagonia. Having previously spent 9-weeks in Europe, plus a trip to Japan, I figured I'd have plenty of backlog to write about while planning my next trip. Well, those European blogs are still waiting to be written....
The blog, as you know my 3 dear readers, has become about my ridiculous outdoor escapades, generally while wearing a tutu and most definitely while carrying my constant travel companion and Action Figure Mascot Grandpa Max, and less so about travel. Nowadays whenever I travel it seems to be for ridiculous outdoor escapades!

However, very occasionally I do travel for something other than adventures outside. And last month I found myself in windy Chicago (full disclosure: it wasn't that windy) to visit my amazing friends there while taking in a Husky Football game! Me and seven of my friends and fellow Husky faithful descended on Chi-town where we handily beat the Illinois Illini at beautiful Soldier Field. Not only that, but the weather was spectacular and my hosts were even better. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the weekend!
