    Carri, thanks for you kind words. I love your ability to capture the off road jeeping experience in words and pictures. I especially liked the photo through the window frame looking down Imogene Basin from the top of Imogene Pass. Please come back in the fall and experience the bright yellow Aspens on our Corkscrew Gulch tour. Hope to see you again. Don Fehd, Switzerland of America Jeep Tours, Ouray, Colorado.

      Thank you for reading my blogs. It means so much to me. I am planning to do the Trans Siberian Railway in 2013, and need a travel buddy. None of my current travel buddies, friends, or distant relatives want to go!!!! Interested? I want to go from Vladivostok to Moscow, what some call the reverse direction. Your adventures sound great to me!

    Hi Carri: I thought the 9/11 stair climb piece was moving. Thank you for all your kind remarks. Look forward to meeting with you sometime in the future!

    Hi Carri,
    You interviewed our family after the Denver Gorilla Run having won the Fundraising award for the event which we ran in honor of our daughter. Just wondered if that story ever came together and if so where we could watch it?

    Thanks for your support, Carri! I really relate to your desire to be the “perpetual tourist” – the more one travels, the more inspired one becomes to keep doing it! I lived in Paris years ago (my son was born here) and now I spend several months a year in the City of Light! (The rest of the time, I’m in Lakeville, Ct.)

    Keep up the good work, and thanks again!

    • #30 by catchcarri on March 28, 2012 - 5:16 am

  26. #43 by Broken Sparkles on March 28, 2012 - 10:20 pm

    Tourist for a living! I’d like to be that too! Isn’t there a great charm in the airplane going to a place you’ve never been before?

    Darlin’…be careful what you wish for…….living full time out of a suitcase is a new reality that takes some adjustment. I’ve been ‘on the road’ forever……I feel at home……somewhere else. upside….the lifestyle is conducive to creativity……..downside……forget about stability and retirement planning 🙂

    • #52 by catchcarri on April 5, 2012 - 5:51 pm

      I agree, some downsides can come with traveling…but overall it’s worth everything! There’s something refreshing in an undefined road!

    Thanks for coming by, catchcarri! I was looking at the photo where you are hailing a cab, and before zooming in on the phone number of the cab, expected it to be shot in Peru or somewhere in Latin America. Which part of Denver is that? Is it by the old Stapleton airport?

    • #104 by catchcarri on May 24, 2012 - 6:21 pm

      Dang! Talk about attention to detail! Love it 🙂 It was shot in the Rhino District at the Taxi building. I wish it was Peru or Latin America! Someday!
