We just got back from seeing Charles Phoenix here in St Louis and I am PUMPED. I'm ready to plan a road trip and paint a wall of my house orange!
10 years ago-ish, I left my job intending to focus on my blog - Craves, Caves, & Graves - and one life event after another has intervened since. I got involved in another business, I started a travel agency, I had a kid, we started homeschooling.
On the back end, I wanted to completely redesign CCG but was quickly overwhelmed. I started using WordPress, which, wow, unnecessarily complicated for a hobby blog. Then I tried Wix, which is SO glitchy, way too glitchy for something so expensive. I cannot tell you how many blogs were written but never published because they disappeared into the ether.
If you know me, you know this photo is like a sign. Meramec Caverns is where it all began (my own version of this photo was once on my business cards), I love roadside Americana, and Charles Phoenix is one of my idols. We are ready to hit the road this summer and return to our roots, telling you about all the hidden gems off the beaten path. I cannot wait!
