2008 - first time meeting TBers in Minnesota, Midwest road trip (Detroit, Chicago, Iowa, Minnesota)

2009 - St. Louis, Colorado, San Francisco

2010 - Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria

2011 - Czech Republic, Poland, Chicago (for sister's wedding), Smokies (reconnect with personal history), Atlanta, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Slovenia

2012 - Disney World, Milwaukee, Chicago, Los Angeles (first TB Meet-up ever), South Korea

2013 - Florida, Texas

Hoping to visit all 30 stadiums in Major League Baseball, and some minor league ones along the way. So far, 18 down, 12 to go.

When not traveling, I just work for the most part, living a pretty boring life.

Thanks for the smiles, Walter! I like your idea of touring the state capitals. I've lived in Virginia for over twenty years and have never been to the state capital in Richmond. I will have to put that on my list.
