Dear Bob and Sue
More than a laugh out loud travel memoir, Dear Bob and Sue: Season 2 will bring to life the joy of discovery, the pure satisfaction of accomplishment, and the humor that comes with experiencing new places and activities. Season 2 is the follow-up to Dear Bob and Sue, a charming and sometimes irreverent chronicle of a middle-aged couple as they visit each of the country's fifty-nine national parks, testing their mettle and stretching their endurance. In their second book of the series, follow Matt and Karen as they work their way around the western United States discovering some of our most beautiful public lands, hidden gems, and revisiting a few of their favorite national parks. This book is not a hiker's guide, though you will feel as if you are right there with them on some of the most amazing trails the country has to offer. Through a series of emails written to their friends, Bob and Sue, the couple brings the reader along on their adventures, sharing their experiences as they hike the lesser known parks and national monuments.

We don't get to the east coast much, but since we were in NYC for a wedding, Karen decided to take some extra time and visit Acadia NP with her mom. And here's another reason they shouldn't dam the Little Colorado. You wouldn't be able to do this anymore. On our first trip through the Grand Canyon, the water was full of runoff silt and the color of hot chocolate. Fortunately, we had perfect conditions this time. All I remember is swallowing a lot of blue water. So fun!
More than 40, listeners have enjoyed this story on cassette. Now anyone who's ever dreamed of getting away from it all can enjoy the charms and challenges of A Year in Provence on CD! Peter Mayle and his wife had been to Provence as tourists. They had dreamed of one day trading the long, gray winters and damp summers of England for the blue skies and sunshine of the coast of southern France. And then they made it happen. They moved into an old farmhouse at the foot of the Luberon mountains and embarked on a wonderful, if at times bewildering, new life. Among their experiences that first year: being inundated with builders and visitors, grappling with the native accent, taking part in goat races and supervising the planting of a new vineyard.
They write about their impressions of each park, letting their personalities come through. They only seemed to write about what they learned when they were at a park. Still a fun read. This is a funny book, no doubt about it. Matt and Karen, the authors, quit their jobs for a year when they or at least, when he were fifty.
