  1. of, pertaining to, or capable of walking: an ambulatory exploration of the countryside.
  2. moving about or from place to place; not stationary: an ambulatory tribe.


I started this blog to learn how to make a website (spoiler…just use WordPress templates).  It was originally about exploring trails, urban and natural, in the Bay Area. The blog name (sort of) made sense then.

In 2010, we moved from San Francisco to Kentucky and discovered that hiking there, while scenic, can be perilous in the fall and winter due to drunk hunters.  So instead we did some gardening, started canning, cheered for UK basketball, did a few triathlons, got pregnant, had our first kid, and other Kentucky-centric activities.

Four years later, we put our backyard chickens and cat up for adoption, packed up and headed west to Southern California, where we now live with our three children.

I actually hate the name of this blog now. But I don’t want to pay for a new domain.

So here we are. Wandering through life one stage at a time.

This is my ambulatory narration.


“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“–so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
