Road Trip Day 4–Badlands Petrified Gardens

Have you ever gone to one of those places that looks like it hasn’t changed since the early 70’s? And is wasn’t that great back then either? Well, Badlands Petrified Gardens in Kadoka, South Dakota is one of those places. From the handwritten signs to the uninspiring organization of items throughout the yard, this place just didn’t do it for us. Yes there is stuff to be learned here but it is such a snooze-fest that even our rock-hound, Peg, was bored. When the best part about the place is your glowing sneakers in the fluorescent mineral display you know you have issues. I would say skip this place.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
