Podcast episode 79 is available by clicking below.  It is also available on iTunes, Pocket Cast, and Spotify under the travel architect.

After another joke that pays homage to our upcoming travel, I eschew a national day in favor of a few clashing national month celebrations that, if engaged in, will make your bathroom scale go haywire. The Travel Quiz was short, sweet, and fun, but don’t be misled—I still got a low score.  Bucket list destinations from Montana to New Jersey are dissected, evaluated, and judged.  We then look at some of the obstacles one faces when one tries to cycle up high mountain roads in June, reflect on what happens when one doesn’t properly train for high altitude athletic pursuits, and debate whether the husband really will stop in Omaha for some museum-hopping on his way home.  Finally, we look at a handful of winery recommendations given by oenophilic neighbors before learning that the husband is looking to revive his ELC podcast over summer break.

  1. I’d totally stop in Omaha! I drove through it once, 10 years ago, and wished I’d have more time to spend there. Luckily, that’s an easy less-than-one-day’s drive from where we live now.

  2. I was glad to hear that you are looking into the reservation system for Mt Evans, instituted a this year to drive up, if needed for cycling. Don’t wait until you get to Colorado to make arrangements; these things fill up fast! There is usually a family of mountain goats up top. 🙂 No snow these days.
