Our Epic Family Road Trip to GenCon

Helping build Cardhalla
We've been to GenCon for the last five years, but it has always just been me and my husband. We've flown out and driven out and decided that driving is more fun. Flying can be a hassle and I love road trips, so we always stop at fun places along the way. World's largest ball of twine? I'm in!

The 2015 VW Golf GTI: The Hot Little Car That's Big Fun

When I got behind the wheel of the new 2015 VW Golf GTI I was reminded of why everyone should learn how to drive a stick. The answer is one word and that word is fun.

Ewoks, Cheese, Paul Bunyan, and The Ford Transit Connect


The Ford Transit Connect in what I think of as Kryptonite Green.
It's been a busy summer for this fangirl as I traveled hither and yon, but I'm back at the helm with tales of all my adventures! One such adventure was an incredible road trip in the new Ford Transit Connect where I did the most ridiculous, very nerdtastic stuff.
