Navigating the All-Women Off-Road Rebelle Rally

1-Nav Training (100)
“If you do not know where you come from, then you don't know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you're going. And if you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.” Terry Terry Pratchett, Author of Discworld.


Saying goodbye to my GPS, turn-by-turn directions, and thoughts of self driving cars for a weekend, I accepted an invitation join the Rebelle Rally for a two-day Basic Navigation Class. Yes, the old-fashioned kind with a compass and map, a skill-set I found to be quite humbling -- yet empowering to learn.

What is the Rebelle Rally?
The Rebelle Rally is the first women’s off-road navigation rally raid in the United States, coming together in large part by the efforts of off-road pro Emily Miller, visionary and leader. Teams of two women, (driver/navigator), will spend seven days driving mostly off-road from Lake Tahoe to the sand dunes of Southern California. Best of all, you get to leave your cell phone, computer, GPS, & headaches behind. It’s all about YOU. And your endless abilities.

AskPatty's Guide To Great Winter Family Escapes 10: Take a Winter Cruise

AskPatty_Guide_To_Great_Winter_Family_Escapes-Jan2016-10-winter_cruise
Whether you want to travel to warm or cold weather, you can find a cruise line to take you there.

Once the temperature starts dropping, some people want to escape to sun and sand in popular destinations such as the Caribbean and Bahamas. Others sail on exotic adventures to the Southern Hemisphere (including Australia, New Zealand, southern parts of Africa, and most of South America), where our winter is their summer. Find your warm weather cruise destination here at USAToday.

On the other hand, if you want to trade sand for snow, these cold-weather cruises suggested by Conde Nast Traveler can take you to places like Antarctica and Alaska, and will have you seeking out penguins, fjords, and even the Northern Lights.

AskPatty's Guide To Great Winter Family Escapes 5: Go Ice Sculpture Viewing

AskPatty_Guide_To_Great_Winter_Family_Escapes-Jan2016-05-ice_sculpture_viewing


Pay a visit to an ice and snow festival to experience the frozen magic of ice carving.

Originally a skill taught in culinary schools, the art of ice carving has moved out of the kitchen to the great outdoors where teams of ice and snow sculpture artists from around the world come together to compete in sculpting events with the resulting artworks put on display for the rest of us to enjoy.

These frozen displays are carved from solid blocks of ice and snow by a variety of tools including chisels, handsaws, and even chainsaws. Whether you want to visit gorgeous sculpture displays, walk through entire castles built of ice, visit a music festival where all the instruments are made from ice just hours before each concert, or play on a playground constructed entirely from ice with slides, rides, and mazes, these ice and snow festivals elevate ice carving into magnificent works of art.

Learn about some of the top 10 ice and snow festivals around the world, gathered by CheapFlights.com.
