Welcome To My Amazon Adventure
happy you have visited my new web site. I have designed this without
too many bells and whistles which will enable you to navigate it easily
and read the story of how we began our journey in both words and pictures.
You will find this site full of valuable information on this trip
and how to book one yourself ...if you are ready for your own Amazon
I survived the "Trip" to the Amazon,
but not a "Trip" in my home.
Oct. 20th the day we returned from the trip and I had an accident
in my home and ruptured my Achilles Tendon in my right foot.
On Saturday October 26 2002, I entered the
hospital for an operation that would repair the tendon. Under the
skilled hands of a brilliant young doctor (anyone under 60 is young
to me now), Dr. Lance Markbreiter of Shore Orthopedic Group in Tinton
Falls, New Jersey the repair was made successfully. I am now in my
second cast, no pain now, light weight, cool looking black fiberglass.
This will be on for two more weeks and then
the final cast for another two weeks. If it weren't for this accident
which has given me hours of in home time to work, I am sure this site
would not have been put up as fast as it has been. So I suppose...
"Every cloud has a silver lining" After all I can't go out
and play basketball now, right!...Oh, I forgot, I could never play
basketball. For that matter I can't play football, baseball, soccer,
hang glide, play a piano, mountain climb, milk a cow...the list goes
on and on :-)
What You Will See On This Site.
I have finished
uploading just about 400 fabulous images and have completed my story
of this great trip. You will find two convenient "Menu Buttons"
on the bottom of each page. Mouse over the "Photo" button
to see the full pop-up menu showing all the photo collections or mouse
over the "Story" button to go to the chapters in my story.
I have each photo collection set up as separate
slide show. It will be easy to sit back and view the photo collections
you would like to see. Each slide show is set to change every 6 seconds
and you can stop at any time and view any picture you like by simply
clicking on the Thumbnail image of the picture you want to see. You
can also manually change the slides using the Thumbnail menu to do
The story will take you from the beginning preparation for the trip
and will include lots of photos and exciting links that will enable
you to visit many web sites of places we visited or stayed. I think
you will find it interesting and informative, especially if you are
planning a trip to the Amazon Rain Forest.
