Supporting our love of history since 2003:

I like that you are always adding material to your sight.  It’s a very good website and it’s been fun to navigate and learn about the history of all the places I have visited.  And thank you for the professional packaging of photos. I will continue to enjoy the artistic and historic nature of your site.  Happy Trails! – Susan

  1. Dear Dave,
    I love your nostalgia story. I, too, am married to a Kathy(with a “K”). We married later in life as well, however we had known one another for twenty plus years, just happened to end up divorced at the same time and met to have lunch to talk about being roommates. The rest is, as they say, history. Kathy and I do a bit writing as well; love stories in the form of books with genres from “romance” to Steampunk. Our birthdays are exactly(yes I checked) half a year apart. Believe it or not, we live just down the highway from you in Merriam, Kansas. Anyhoo, I just want to say thank you for your story, congrats on fifteen years and I sincerely hope you are both feeling better soon, you guys rock!!

  2. Dear Dave & Kathy, I enjoy your site so much and eagerly look for each issue. I really enjoyed your article on “The Medicine Wheel”. I have been to the wheel but it has been more 20 years ago. The picture you posted prompted a question, has there been restoration to this site? It seems to me there are more stones in the spokes than I remember. Thanks for the time, keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks for the kind words Ed, and thanks for being a newsletter subscriber! I believe there has been some restoration to the Big Horn Medicine Wheel, but don’t have the facts in front of us so can’t say for sure.
