Really Big Road Trip

My wife and I are about to embark on our really big road trip. I’ve written a post at our shared blog, TheOgrens.com, that details the extense of our trip. This trip will be very long (6800 miles, 16 days), but Alyson and I are excited to drive through countless places we’ve never been, and see what we can see. We plan to take copious amounts photographs, and document the trip with posts on our blog, TheOgrens.com, every day or so. We invite you to follow us from our blog, our Twitter feeds (@JordanOgren & @AlysonOgren), or Facebook. I’ll probably post a few things here as well.

Wurlitzer EP 200a

This is a glimpse at the inner workings of my Wurlitzer 200a Electromechanical Piano.

I decided that it was time for my yearly shave. Since I only do this once a year (for the last several years anyway…), I resolved to be shaved in the luxury of a barber’s chair. Hoping for hot towels, lather, and a straight razor, I googled “Winona Barber Shop” and the first result was Tom’s. I gave Tom a call, and he confirmed that old fashion shaves were available and said that he had an opening at 4:30. Tom was an accommodating fellow, and very handy with his clippers. I’m pleased with the result.
