First Post: Danny Gregory's Book & Brompton Folding Bikes

This is the first post for our travelblog. It's February and we're not going anywhere soon, but we have some fun news.

First, we bought a copy of "The Illustrated Journey" by the amazing Danny Gregory at our favorite St. Paul art store Wet Paint. Roberta and I have sketches from our journals in the book (also Roz Stendahl)

There's a lot of great, inspiring artwork in the book. Roberta and I can't wait to begin our sketching excursions from the Union Depot. We are making plans and preparing for our first trips which will likely be on Jefferson Lines which originates here at the Union Depot.

The other news is we just picked up our new Brompton folding bikes from Calhoun Cycle. It's a lot easier traveling by bus and train with folding bikes. Here's my sketch of the bike and a photo of us with the bikes in the waiting room of the Union Depot.

  2. Your Bromptons will eventually get old; but I don't think you ever will!
