Posting 43 Days of "Blog Love": Day 9 ~ "Family Trek" ~

"Travel is a state of mind" ...  So says our friends Clark and Monica, aka "Family Trek."  They not only share, but live this simple, yet very powerful message  --  A message that we find especially valuable at this time of year when so many people are traveling near and far, spending time with family and friends.  Such simple words that serve as a reminder that no matter where you are, no matter what you're doing, it's a matter of taking time to be present in each day and "get out of your routine..."

Over the past week and a day we've shared blogs by friends from around the world who 'travel' by various means.  At this point we thought it appropriate to share some words and stories from another family who has traveled both in the US and abroad.  We have been following Clark and Monica for a couple of years now.  They too are on the list of whom we've become friends with via Facebook, and look forward to meeting up with, 'live and in person,' very soon ... (hopefully next year!)   Until then we take time often to enjoy some of their great posts on their Family Trek blog ... We could suggest a few great ones but there are SO MANY!

Matter of fact... earlier this year "Family Trek" did a series called "California Extravaganza" that shared not only posts from Clark and Monica but many friends contributed articles as well.  We were ecstatic when Clark asked if we would contribute something about Humboldt.  We were quick to accept (or rather I was quick to volunteer my hubby...)   You can read his contribution to the Extravaganza here:  "1001 Words About Humboldt County, California"!  Oh so fun!  We hope that you'll enjoy reading it as much as he enjoyed writing it!

I have to say, for me, I love the fact that Clark and Monica always seem to share topics that we can relate to... from day to day experiences to reflections on holidays -- such as this one (from a couple of years ago) about Thanksgiving and their "Thankful List" --  most appropriate for this month, don't you think? [Do take time to read their Thanksgiving post... and share it... I think it's something that we can all benefit from.]

I'd be willing to bet that I know one thing that will be on Clark's "Thankful List" this year... Living in Lake Tahoe and being so close to snow skiing!  Anyone who knows Clark, KNOWS that he LOVES snow skiing!!  Matter of fact he has involved a great team of contributing writers to create "Tahoe Ski Bum" a multi-faceted resource for those who love to ski the greater Tahoe area of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

When you visit Tahoe Ski Bum you'll find a forum and many other valued resources along with a great blog with helpful tips and perspectives from several area skiers.  Be sure to "Like" Tahoe Ski Bum on Facebook to keep up with the latest posts and happenings on the local mountains!  When you see Clark on the mountain (I'm just sure you will eventually...) be sure to wave "Hi" from us! as he flies by!!

In closing today, one thing that we are thankful for is friends... like those who we have shared with you thus far.  I could continue... (those of you who know me know that I seldom lack for words...) but I'll keep this brief so you can spend some time reading Family Trek blog. Oh and perhaps you can visit them on Facebook too!  Please do share some "Blog Love" and tell them that the Nomadic Jesters sent ya!

Until tomorrow... Enjoy the journey...
