Won’t be doing much blogging. Back in early March. Invading the Grand Canyon and surrounding vicinity.

Try not to miss me. };-)>

        It’s always great to live vicariously through someone else ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have a wonderful trip! I am envious–that is a place I want to see some day.

  9. Dave February 21, 2014 at 7:27 pm #

    Have fun. I have wanted for so long to explore that area. I hope you have a good camera.

    Oh, The Grand Canyon. I’ll be going hiking there in late April. Enjoy and marvel at its splendor!

  12. Lee-Anne February 22, 2014 at 8:00 pm #

    Oh I really like that satchel!

    Enjoy the trip, that’s awesome!

  16. Sherri February 24, 2014 at 7:38 am #

    Have a super time Nav! Took the kids to the Grand Canyon a few years ago and loved it. Looking forward to catching up when you return and remember, don’t get too close to the edge… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Inion N. Mathair February 24, 2014 at 3:57 pm #

    Happy vacationing! You will be missed. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • navigator1965 February 24, 2014 at 8:40 pm #

      Thank you, ladies. Did the Sedona pink jeep tour today. Magnificent.

  18. idiotwriter February 25, 2014 at 6:01 pm #

    Your probably nearly back!! – Hope you having a stunning time Sir ๐Ÿ˜€

  19. navigator1965 February 26, 2014 at 1:51 am #

    I am, iw.

  20. jonapluswords February 27, 2014 at 12:54 pm #

    I try not to come across as shallow, superficial or a general fashion victim, but…. need…. bag…
    That is a nice bag ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh and the canyon should be equally fascinating ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • navigator1965 February 27, 2014 at 6:12 pm #

      Thanks, Jonah. It’s an awesome bag. Saddleback leather. You can Google them.

      Grand Canyon was an inspiring experience.

      • jonapluswords March 3, 2014 at 4:14 pm #

        Oh and I did. Slightly too long to be comfortable with it ๐Ÿ™‚
        Did you go alone or did you have company?

        • navigator1965 March 3, 2014 at 5:24 pm #

          Went with the gf – a.k.a. The Nameless One – and stayed with my parents, who are wintering in Arizona.

          I think it was around -30 deg C this morning when I went out to shovel. A rude change from AZ. The only plus to -30C is that it is too cold for rattlesnakes.

          The Saddleback bag was excellent as a carry-on weekend bag. Used it exclusively on a three day sojourn to Sedona, AZ.

  21. LC Aggie Sith February 27, 2014 at 7:04 pm #

    Enjoy! And I thought I was the only Saddleback Leather afficionado ๐Ÿ˜€

    • navigator1965 February 27, 2014 at 7:05 pm #

      Thank you, Lady Sith. Yes, I am a Saddleback fellow. };-)>

  22. simplyilka March 1, 2014 at 10:20 am #

    Enjoy! The Grand Canyon is amazing!

  23. The Hook March 1, 2014 at 3:28 pm #

    I hope you’ve been having the time of your life.
    Minus the crappy song, of course.

    • navigator1965 March 3, 2014 at 5:21 pm #

      Why didn’t my reply below indent? Did you get notification that I replied, Hook?

  24. navigator1965 March 1, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

    Pink jeep tour in Sedona, saw the Grand Canyon, hiked Camelback Mountain, $39 for Ultimat vodka 750 ml, toured Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West, grapefruit off the tree. Even got to see it rain in AZ today.

    No crappy songs here. Red eye flight Phoenix to Calgary, with an eight hour layover before the flight to Ottawa won’t be fun, though.

  25. Inion N. Mathair March 1, 2014 at 6:42 pm #

    How could you leave the amazing blogosphere and all us for that tiny, little crack in the earth. What’s Grand (Capital G no less) about a crevice in the earth? See let me paint a picture for you Nav. The Grand Canyon…..blogging, The Grand Canyon a group of over sensitive writers, The Grand Canyon….nagging comments….The Grand Canyon…Blurred vision…The Gran…okay so it’s a better choice! Don’t wander to close to the edge our friend. From what I hear that Canyon is pretty big!! lmao. Have a great time our dear friend & think of us when your standing there taking all that beauty in and just once, give a great, big, loud holler for your Southern, Irish Duo! BTW I think Inion had already wished you well…oh well!!

    • navigator1965 March 1, 2014 at 7:06 pm #

      Could there be a more fair and desirable mother-daughter combination than such a lovely Irish-Southern US duo? You two are lucky that I am (relatively) sober, this being an event which can be equated in frequency with the blue moon. (Not to be confused with the delightful Blue Moon wheat beer, which I have been known to do on occasion.)

      Yes, I do believe you are correct that Inion had already wished me well, but in some matters once is never enough.

      The Grand Canyon was indeed a grand affair, and I shall regale you both as to my epic battle with the Grand Canyon grizzly as soon as I can get home and craft the post.

      At the risk of giving it all away, I survived the ordeal. }8-0>

  26. Miss Lou March 3, 2014 at 4:10 pm #

    This was some time ago and I have been absent pretty much for the last 3 weeks.. Did you take lots of pictures? and if so, will they be shared?

    Hope you had a wonderful restful time!


    • navigator1965 March 3, 2014 at 5:20 pm #

      Hi, ML. I got back this weekend with a little red eye flight from Phoenix to Calgary, and then an eight hour wait at the airport for the flight back to Ottawa.

      Had a great time, will post with pictures in a day or two once I get my body back on schedule.

      • Miss Lou March 3, 2014 at 5:21 pm #

        Look forward to it! ๐Ÿ™‚


  27. Jenna Rambles March 4, 2014 at 12:27 am #

    Ahhh! Come back! Your missed! :((

    • navigator1965 March 4, 2014 at 8:22 am #

      Good news. Just got back over the weekend. 2nd 10 hour sleep in a row to catch up.

  29. jennifer Windram March 10, 2014 at 4:36 pm #

    Can’t wait to see your pics. I never been, even though it’s just a state over. I need to do something about that.

    • navigator1965 March 10, 2014 at 5:13 pm #

      I’ll try to get a post up in the next few days. You really should go. Some of the scenery is spectacular.

      The locals, for some strange reason, are afraid of their little garter snakes. The ones with the rattles on their tails. Go figure.

      • jennifer Windram March 11, 2014 at 10:51 am #

        Weird. I always thought the ones with the rattles were the cutest ones.

  30. Mich-in-French March 11, 2014 at 11:59 am #

    Hope you are having an amazing time!

    • navigator1965 March 11, 2014 at 2:17 pm #

      I’m back. It was a great trip, Mich. The scenery was amazing at Sedona and incredible at the Grand Canyon.

      • Mich-in-French March 12, 2014 at 12:14 pm #

        Yay! Now write dammit! only kidding – I have been very quiet with not enough time to read all these amazing posts I see calling for me everyday – but soon, very soon…there will be more time!
