Well, once again I have turned in the "old" Explorer for a new one. This new Explorer is the redesigned, 2002 Explorer, and once more I'm driving a red one. Woohoo! Becoming all excited at the sight of such a fine machine I decided to embark on a spur of the moment 2 week trip that I’ve labeled, “The Volcano Tour”. So called because the first part at least will be touring and exploring various volcanic sites in and around the Cascades; the only volcanically active mountain system in the continental US. So travel vicariously with me as I get back “On the Road” – again!
