I'm still on the road, so there won't be any new posts until next week. (One highlight from the trip so far has been a pair of signs we passed in Western New York late at night. The top sign read "CORRECTIONAL FACILITY AREA." Underneath: "DO NOT PICK UP HITCHHIKERS.")

In the meantime, here are a couple favorite travel-related stories from the past.

This Penguin: An Unexpected Journey (January 2013)Lost baby penguins wearing earmuffs.

Monitoring from Space Shows Even This Giant Crab Can Navigate Better than You (November 2012)Who doesn't love land crabs?

Another highlight was a radio station we picked up somewhere in Indiana with the tagline, "It's not just a bunch of random songs. It's a bunch of random songs you really like!" See you later this week, by which time I may have adapted that into a new blog descriptor.
