Welcome to my blog! I’m Peter and I am so glad you have landed here. Follow the links above or continue reading below to learn more about the Adventures of the Cajunlimeys!
I started this site in August 2021 to describe our adventures. Colorado’s Collegiate Loop was published first using photos and a journal from the trail. Since then, I have posted “in real-time” with post-trip reflection posts. I have also described some older adventures that were particularly fun using photos and notes from the time.
With my lovely wife Janet and our children Bailey and Samuel, we are the Cajunlimeys. Read more about us here.

- Reflections on the Coast to CoastAfter any significant adventure, I like to gather and publish my thoughts a few days after it is finished. Such a reflective post can help others plan something similar while also helping with my pondering of “what next?” In this reflection, Dean and Tracy also make insightful contributions! What?
