2009 is off to a flying start. We just wrapped a trip to Napa that had Loni sending tweets on the fly from Artesa, Turbull, Cakebread, Sequoia Grove and other scenic spots along the way. More on that trip to come.

We’ve updated the StarkSilverCreek Loreto Bay and Loreto Guides with more information.

During our Christmas trip to Canada, we blogged about “All things Canadian” as we took a week off our west coast focus for some snow, family and Tim Horton’s.

Thanks again to so many of you for writing in with comments, tips and feedback! You can use the contact page to get in touch.
