Semi retired college professor. Frequent traveler within the USA 50-states, and 2 or 3 international trips per year. Interested in local history, geography, geology and local culture. Like to search out good comfort food restaurants, catch local events and activities. Hobby is photography - love the iPhone as the perfect omni-present camera. I bring the high-end gear occasionally, but like to travel super-light whenever possible. My wife tolerates my idiosyncrasies; and sometimes joins me.
