If you go looking for adventure, you can usually find it… sometimes you don’t even need to look, you just have to be in the right place at the right time and viola!… you’re in an adventure before you even realize you’re in an adventure. We have three stories today about times when adventure comes calling… First we have a story from my friend and storyteller extraordinaire, Jeanine Moss, who shares a story about a ride on the Marrakesh Express. Then I share a story with my cousin Heather about our Aunt Katie and my good friend, Eric, two people who are no longer with us, but definitely understood the value of a good adventure, even if you have to create it yourself! Lastly, Jeanine is back with a story about ape-sitting… She and her friend end up in charge of a baby Gibbon ape and well, you can imagine how well that goes.

Tammy is determined to find Bigfoot and she may have discovered a BIG gift from Bigfoot on her camping trip in search of him or her. Plus we have an interesting chat about our favorite Hormel foods... Dinty Moore Stew and Spam, the magic meat that comes in a can!
NOTE: Today's Episode is in honor of this badass, sassy, take no prisoners, party until she’s says stop, tough as nails and fun as hell grandma, who I’m sure is having a cold one, raising hell, and telling all her best dirty jokes right now.
RIP Grandma Pat: 1926-2019
Life truly is an an adventure and it’s probably no surprise that myself and my four sisters seem to have more adventures than normal! After all, the show’s not called How in the Hell did I get here for nothing!
Today’s episode is in honor of our maternal grandmother, Grandma Pat, who is featured in our first story. She was truly remarkable… a mother of 8, a grandmother of many including three great, great, great grandchildren. Sadly we lost her in early February of 2019, less than 48 hours after this podcast went live and I like to think she hung around to see it happen. They broke the mold after Grandma was born, you’ll understand what I mean when you hear our first story which happened at a family party a long time ago.
In our second story, I find myself divorced and ready to go on a vacation! So, I do the logical thing… find a women’s travel adventure company and book myself on an adventure to Cozumel (side note, have you noticed when I go to Mexico crazy things happen to me? Um yeah!) It turns out to be a great trip, but little did I know the adventure would start before I even got on the plane!
Everyone loves a good garage sale, right? In our third story today, Erin decides to throw the Mother of all garage sales and the prep takes weeks! I’m there to help out and it’s going great... until the day she tells me that we have to set up seven teepees…. Let me repeat that: seven teepees…. On the lawn…. In 98 degree heat….
