In a few short weeks, my fiance and I will be gearing up, and heading to Fairbanks, Alaska, to kick off a five- or six-month tour down to Mexico. If you're interested in our route, you can check out the outline we've got in mind here. So far, we've never managed to stay on route, always wandering around to nearby sights, so we'll see what happens in the end. If you want to follow our progress, we'll be updating our Tumblr page. Anyway, the point of all this is that today marks my final blog post for this column. With that in mind, I had a hard time deciding on what to focus on, so I'm just going to throw out a potpourri of things I'm into for various reasons. Here we go!
