Chipper On The Move

I got tired of just sitting around.  I am, after all, a Gnomad.  That’s just a club I belong too.  We are traveling Gnomes.  That dude that was kidnapped by those College Students and then became popular for his post cards kind of made what we do lame but it hasn’t stopped us from traveling.  I’m not expecting a product endorsement from my travels like that “Travelocity” Gnome.  I do it for fun…just like Bjorn!

Bjorn talked to the Roomie about giving me my own page.  I’m thrilled to be one of those folks that shows others the world.  Even if that world seems bland.  It’s not bland its beautiful. You just have to find the beauty.

I’m a sports fan.  I love nature and reading.  It’s amazing to discover…well anything.

I love being a friend to all!  Please feel free to check out my page to see what I’m up too 🙂  I will be stopping by Bjorn’s main page too.  Enjoy every moment.  Look around…your adventure is right in front of you 🙂


2018 Winter Olympics – Norway Edition

Everyone knows that I’m Norwegian.  If you have read this blog before you will know that in the last Winter Olympics I was Partying Hard!  My homeland is owing the Gold this year!

I was cheering on the boys on to Gold Glory in the Men’s Cross Country Skiing!

I just wished I could be in Korea for this amazing event!

Over all we are doing well.  Norway has the most medals!  Hurrah!

I’m so proud to be Norwegian!!

Gratulerer Norge!


Thanks to the Hoax (not) that is climate change our winter weather patterns aren’t exactly average.

So first it was 59 degrees.  We had a little rain.

Then it clear up.  It was 40 degrees and sunny.  We all got outside because the weather folks said it was going to snow.

The sky was blue and the sun shining high in the sky, gorgeous!

It started snowing just a few hours later.  It was a beautiful snow.  It clung to the trees and grass to paint such a wonderful winter landscape!

Bjorn was loving the snow.  We’ve had a lot of rain but not so heavy on the snow.  Being Norwegian and loving the Winter Olympics he is loving this little taste of the season 🙂

Let It Snow…But Just a Little

Winter Storm Inga made its way through our part of town today.

She was a nice Swedish girl and didn’t over stay her welcome.  We got about 1″ of snow and it’s fairly warm (34 degrees) so it wasn’t a mess out there.  I’m pretty sure we won’t even get to sled in what Inga left behind.  Oh well…maybe the next one, lol.  Bjorn out!

Bjorn’s Flash Back

I’ve been looking at old pictures of some of my adventures.  I thought I’d share some of my favorites.

The trip to South Carolina was part of our pilgrimage to Orlando, Florida.  We stopped in every state on the way.

Savannah, Georgia was also part of that pilgrimage.   I loved this very old city.  It had southern charm and so much history.  There is a raw beauty about Savannah.  Sometimes it’s hard to describe. If you can, I recommend a visit to the port community.  It’s known for its Art School, Spanish Moss and incredible historic homes with exquisite iron work.

Baltimore, Maryland has a beautiful Inner Harbor.  So many activities to keep you busy all day.  They also have many delicious venues to get food.  The National Aquarium was a lot of fun too.  It’s on the way to Washington, D.C. so if you are going that way check it out on the way.

This picture was taken at Fort Mifflin, Philadelphia, PA.  This site was a particular favorite of The Roomie.  She loves anything 1700’s which Philadelphia has in spades.  She even loved that it rained that day.  Lack of crowds offers more adventure time and one gets to really experience the site.  I was digging the cannons…loud but very cool.

Cleveland, Ohio is the home to Rock ‘N’ Roll.  They Museum offers many things.  From Michael Jackson’s glove to Elvis’ motorcycle.  Cleveland is also known for it’s Art Museums and our favorite…The Christmas Story House.  The Roomie enjoyed Lakeside Cemetery.  She’s all about Cemeteries too.  She was digging the Cemeteries in Savannah too 😉

I’m not sure where my next adventure will be but I know it will be a good one.
