    Happy Husband Berger

    My wife and I are not resort-vacation types. We like trips where you visit cultural landmarks, go to museums, and learn the history of a place. We don't do cruises. Too many days at the beach can feel claustrophobic

    Karen Johnson

    Remember third grade...when homework included using your spelling words in a sentence? Well, Karen created stories from her spelling words in third grade and she hasn't stopped since. As the years passed, she became enamored with a host of Southern writers, identifying with their stories and writing her own as she grew up in North Carolina. Life happened and she's now a grandmother who travels and does step aerobics with the best of them. She contemplates getting back on the ski slopes or flying small planes again....both of which would make good story material. In the meantime, she's just completed the Heart of NC Wine Trail so look for a wine story in the near future.

    Dave Shultz

    Growing up on the road, the eldest son of a second generation professional rodeo clown makes travel second nature. My photography experience started in high school and while the photography never stopped, the rodeo business did. Photography has always been the central thread in whatever I was doing. Even a brief stint as a Dallas County Deputy Sheriff in the mid 70's found me doing crime scene photography (not as much fun as travel photography). As a guest on the Tattered Passport radio show, I've shared my tales of Motorcycle Madness, headhunters in Borneo and others with international listeners. I also have done Web Quests on the Internet where I travel on a motorcycle, equipped with a digital camera and notebook computer and post daily updates for about 150,000 viewers. I live in Oklahoma and wander the back roads of the southwest exploring the deserts and mountains taking large format black and white photographs.
