About Us...
This is our travel blog... our electronic travel journal you could call it... documenting our journeys to new & different places. I called our blog, 'Tree Top Flyin'... a Jimmy Buffett reference that reminds me of traveling, & the adventures to be had with our newly acclaimed 'IFR' Pilot & his plane. We're a non-traditional family - living in non-traditional ways... and I love it that way. For the four of us life is quick & distinct... it's unique and adventuresome - but it's also very normal. We have angst, & we have laughter. We have pain and we have greatness. We're happy, and we're whole...this family, that is mine.

Hiking in Jackson - July 2010

Ha! This is my newest, most favorite picture.
Jim took me hiking in the Teton mountains where he hunts in the winter.
I think we only covered 1/3 of what he does on a hunt - and I wanted to die.
It's below zero when he does it (I would never),
but this day it was a gorgeous 75/blue-skies.
We stopped at the top to have a pic-nic.

Hey Em. I didn't realize the hunting trips were so vigorous. I know I would want Jim around in a wilderness emergency. (You are still playing 'wilderness' after all these years). I have to ask: who is the guy in the background of your family pic? I noticed him while we were staying at your place and he cracks me up every time.

Melis, That - clearly is a guy who wishes to be in my family. Why else would you do push-ups on a dock in Jamaica, in the shadows of a family photo shoot. Poor guy, I hope to adopt him some day.
