In September 2016 we embarked on a week-long driving tour of northern Arizona and southern Utah, joined by our friends Mark & Joanne Guralnick from Brooklyn, NY. While Liza and Joanne worked out all the accommodations, Robert was the daily trip planner (with the help of Arizona Highways and Highroads magazines), with a focus on national parks and monuments.

In August, Liza needed to be in Dallas to see family, so we took the opportunity to visit, at long last, Big Bend National Park in Texas. It’s not exactly a quick stop off the interstate, you have to want to go there, but it is certainly worth the effort. It was a bit silly to have only one full day there, but this was more or less a scouting trip, and we’re definitely going back!
Liza had Mount Rushmore on her bucket list for a long time, so when friends Mark and Joanne Guralnick asked if we wanted to join them on a Bicycle Adventures tour in South Dakota, we said sure! And the main thing to tell everyone…if you haven’t been there, what are you waiting for?
Liza was happy to spend a weekend in Virginia for the wedding of Nick Deichmeister and Linh Hoang. (Nick is the youngest son of her cousin Bob Deichmeister and his wife Pam Ginsbach.) Continue reading More Wedding Bells! June 2015
We have wanted to visit Cleveland for awhile, ever since we heard they had the largest Slovenian population outside of Slovenia. In mid-May we had our chance, and were very happy to visit for the graduation of Richard Wanerman from Case Western Reserve University School of Law. (Richard’s father Rob and Robert are second cousins; their grandfathers Julius Farber and Mark [Farber] Markoff (he changed his name) were brothers.) Continue reading Cleveland Weekend, May 2015
After not having been to a wedding for literally years, we went to
our second wedding in a few months – this one in Salem, OR, with the happy couple being Robert Mosher (son of our long-time friends Tom and Diane Mosher) and Kaila Studebaker. We went up a few days in advance to do the sightseeing in Portland that we’ve never managed to get around to.
In April Liza had a work trip to Aberdeen MD, so took the opportunity at week’s end to dash up to NY to see friends Mark and Joanne Guralnick in Brooklyn. Robert joined Liza in Baltimore and together we took the train up to NY Penn Station. Continue reading NYC Weekend – Apr 2014
