Celebrating the Defenders

2016 Out West, Kansas, Road Trip

A Yelp! reviewer said that besides the Dalton Gang, that the Dalton Museum was also about Shoeless Joe. That was the hook we needed but it turned out to be about a different baseball legend, Walter Johnson, a Baseball Hall of Famer who grew up in Kansas. Despite the false lure we truly enjoyed our visit to this local museum. Besides lots of photos and artifacts, they show an episode of Investigating History that tells the story of the October 5, 1892 defense of Coffeyville, Kansas, by the citizens that rose up against the The Dalton Gang who attempted the robbery of two banks simultaneously. To make it sweeter, we found a geocache located between the location of the two banks! What fun!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
