270 really good places to visit, divided across 16 categories that might brighten your day. 

Did you know there was a World Heritage site within 90 minutes of our communities? How
about a 500-acre outdoor museum, where visitors experience large-scale sculpture and

Dope, Fabric and Guts

Stories about the earliest fliers as they invented the future


This book shares many essential and not-so-essential stories and photographs about early heavier-than-air flying machines and those pilots associated with them. Over time their flying machines would be called aeroplanes and still later, aircraft. The early successes of the Wright brothers and the French, Voisin brothers, quickly fade and their technological trailblazer status falter. Others took their place-making discoveries and advanced technologies to enhance aviation.


This book uses the author's early postcard collection and vintage photograph images to share a perspective of those early flyers before WWI, as they created history. It was a time when the concept of air space was a struggle between the birds and the pioneer fliers. Country boundaries had not yet extended into the sky. These fliers would invent their future, what we now call history. $30 shipping and taxes included
