Walking in Memphis thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m covering my road trip in the American South in May of 2022. It was the end of the road — trip. We’d been surprised by Alabama’s charming coastal city Mobile, soaked up peak small town southern charm in Mississippi’s Tupelo, and finally had some time, after the whirlwind that was TravelCon’s closeout…

Travelcon 2022: Saying Goodbye to a Great Thing thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m covering my road trip in the American South in April and May of 2022, including speaking at Travelcon in Memphis. The rumors are true.

And why…

On my recent trip back to Tennessee, I was lucky enough to experience the history and the magic of country music in three very special ways, and left with a deeper…

Bringing My Mom to Bonnaroo thumbnail

Years ago, I watched the documentary Taking My Parents to Burning Man, and I thought, um… hell no. Burning Man is a lot of things, but an experience I wanted to share with my mom or my dad was not one of them. However, years later, things changed — sort of. My friend Kristin was visiting me…
