A Homer's Travel's Look Back At 2008

This year has been a year of change.  The last time I had this much change was back in 1987 when I graduated from college, got a job, and moved to California.  Thinking back, that year of change seemed to have gone a lot smoother than 2008.

Let's look back, shall we:
The coming year is going to be one of preparation for me.  I want to prepare myself for the 2010 Pilgrimage of Saint James.  There are a couple trails including the Steamboat and Cowboy trails that should provide good training.  I also intend to do more Omaha walkabouts to add miles to my legs in between bike rides.

I want to continue taking pictures.  It is something that I enjoy doing.  While my first photo safari was a bust, I intend to do more.  Who knows, maybe I can find a money making opportunity in there somewhere.

Most importantly, I'm wishing for a less stressful 2009, especially for the Wife.

Here's to a Happy and Prosperous New Year for all.
May all your dreams come true in 2009.


  1. To quote a little Keanu: "whoa". That's been a heck of a year!

    Happy New Years to you and The Wife! :D

  2. I just got around to reading some back posts. I think I started reading your blog about the time of your wife's health scare. Now it feels like your an old friend. Thanks for re-capping the year for all of us.

    Reflecting back is something I need to do - but more importantly - making plans for a wonderful 2009 is something I need to do. Your post has inspired me to make the coming year a more memorable one than the last.

    Take care, my friend.

  3. T_B: Your welcome. This is my second year end recap I've put together and I always enjoy reading my old posts - typos and all. Everyone needs to look back every now and then. It makes the future look clearer sometimes.

    I have some plans myself. More geocaching is one of them. Your blog often makes me want to get out and continue hunting. Thank you for you comments and your blogging.
