Our Year in Cities 2013

During 2013, Lindsey and I spent at least one night in each of the cities listed below.

  • Traverse City, MI (Hometown)
  • Cleveland, OH (Carley’s Wedding – L only)
  • Ishpeming, MI (Meeting Trygg Quayle)
  • Trout Lake, MI (56th Annual Mackinac Bridge Walk)
  • South Bend, IN (Notre Dame EP Seminar – C only)
  • Pinkney, MI (Harvey’s 1st UM football game)

Not mentioned above are the five nights we spent at Munson Hospital for Harvey’s birth, which felt like a different world after a few days.

Jerky Fest 2013

A dear ol’ friend, Ben Piehl, stopped by on Boxing Day and brought his smoker and marinated beef and buffalo strips. We’ve made jerky three years running, and it’s become a fun holiday-time tradition. This year, the result was our best yet, not that I can take much credit! It’s always fun to catch up and play some ping pong. The highlight for Lindsey and me was seeing Ben hold Harvey.
