oh right, why Dominica?

well, why not?!

That is a valid question, honestly it is not entirely a boring story. Interesting may be a stretch.

So, in 2009 and 2010 Kansas City had blizzards that we haven't experienced for a decade, in 2010, we had plans to drive to a beach on the Gulf of Mexico, any beach would do, because 2009 was such a horribly cold winter. We had to delay our plans by a day because of a two foot snow storm on Christmas Eve. In 2011, around November, we got a dusting of snow and I decided to google Caribbean Islands to escape to during December, not that we could afford it, but just to dream. Every island I came across on the internet was not really appealing to me. We like to camp, hike, explore, we are a family that is not well suited to the resort life style, so I googled "camping in the Caribbean, nature island" and lo and behold Dominica popped up.

I have to be honest here, I had never heard of Dominica before and no one else I know in Kansas City has either, but I would bet they haven't heard of Kansas City either, and that interests me. The problem is it is quite far and expensive to get to, so, like all obsessions begin, for me anyway, tell me I can't do something... and I WILL find a way!
