About jdornoff
The Open Road is the best way to describe me. Considering I was almost born on the open road, it has always been in my blood. I was born in Pasadena, California but my most of our family is in Michigan. By the time I was 5 I had lived in Pasadena, Phoenix, A couple of cities in Texas, Spokane, and Seattle. I spent my school years Pasadena/South Pasadena then moved to Spokane, Washington; Charlotte, North Carolina; Salt Lake City, Utah; Lincoln City and Astoria, Oregon and recently moved to Portland, Oregon returning to school full time.

I spent many days in Santa Monica, California while growing up having fun on the pier and on the beach. I think this caused my love of being by the ocean. I would love to pernamently move to a coastal city (as mentioned I did live in two Oregon Coastal Cities) but not sure where.

However of all the cities I have lived in I have to say that Charlotte, North Carolina was my favorite.

If I could I would be on the road full time as I love seeing this wonderful world. Retail Business Consulting pays the bills but my real loves are Photography and Writing (now if I get those to pay enough maybe I could be on the road full-time..hmmm).

Because of all this you will notice that most of reviews will be travel related whether it will be motel/hotels, car rentals, photography products and automobiles. I try to find places for families on the budget. You will also notice that my reviews will take into consideration families on a budget.

Here is a map of states I have visited, as you can see there is only a few I have not been to.
