Where was your photo taken: Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. I took my Florida-born daughter hiking here to see snow for the first time.
Where do you live now: Orlando(-ish)
Scariest airline flown: Air South, a limping, discount carrier that offered $19.99 fares on an aging 727 between St. Petersburg, Fla., and Fort Lauderdale in the mid-90s. I boarded an Air South flight one morning after encountering the same woman checking my bag at the counter and taking my boarding pass at the gate. As I was fastening my seatbelt, she boarded the plane and took her seat - in the cockpit.
Most remote corner of the globe visited: Does that Illinois corn field I accidentally drove the driver's ed car through in high school count?
Favorite guidebook series: I'm much more likely to surf travel blogs and ask locals for destination advice, but I am an admirer of the Rough Guides. Overall, I think they better acquaint you with the culture of a place than some of the other series.
Favorite tourist trap? Walt Disney World. Say what you want, I remain unapologetic.
Where do you hide your emergency cash? If I told you, I would have to. . . change where I hide my emergency cash.
When I'm not writing for Gadling, I'm. . . donning a hard hat to oversee the operations for some coal recovery and reclamation projects at abandoned coal mines in the Midwest. Seriously.
Favorite city/country/place: My favorite place is anywhere I'm able to shut off my brain for a few minutes and breathe. Travel does that for me in a way home never will. I can find my heaven perched on a stool in the aforementioned Bajan rum shack, people-watching in Washington Square Park on a warm spring day in New York City, or surrounded by soybeans driving the country roads of Western Kentucky.
