Potts Family Travels
...to favorite pages from the online travel journals of Rochelle Elkan and Michael Potts of our sabbatical 2001 European and 2002 North American travels.
In June, 2001, I wrote on this page "As we travel along, so will this site (as long as the technology holds out...)" I should have thought to say "and global politics stay stable." We were then heading out for our second sabbatical, intended to be a twelve month long european trip including a wintertime West African sidetrip, but on 9/11 the world changed, and we came home for Christmas.
In May, 2002 we headed out again for a tour around the Western States driving our brand new hybrid Prius. We got 52.4 miles per gallon on that trip -- reducing our fossil fuel guilt somewhat. We also visited family in Western Mexico, and took a quick, unpleasant trip to New England, where the only part we liked was Cape Anne.
We hit the road again in 2003 for an undocumented trip to Oregon. Then, in September 2003 we took a family canoe trip through Canyonlands National Park on Stillwater Canyon.
Most of the pages and pictures from these trips have been removed from public access simply because they were taking up too much space. We hacked away as carefully as we could, but there are doubtless many broken links leading to pages that used to be but aren't anymore. We're sorry. If you beg very prettily on behalf of a certain page, and we agree with you, we usually restore it.
