Meet Tom
The "Normal Photographer!"

   Hi! I am Tom and I am also Dad. I am the guy tasked with providing destinations and entertainment on our adventures. A high priority is placed on planning activities with Aubrey's life challenges in mind. Her ability to walk long distances or be on her feet for extended periods of time is limited. Wheelchair accessibility also plays into these decisions.
    Aubrey’s mom and I met in the control tower at the Bloomington-Normal Airport (Central Illinois Regional Airport) in January 1986. We married in October 1986. Aubrey is the middle of three children. She has an older brother and a big little sister. As everyone was growing up, we all pitched in for Aubrey’s care.
   Retiring from service as an air traffic controller and later as a school bus driver, I became Aubrey’s primary caregiver. Not a bad deal. We spend a great deal of time together (anywhere from 8 to 18 hours a day) and I am tasked with finding different ways to spend a day. We both like spending time in a motor vehicle traveling to an event.
   Locally, Bloomington (City of Bloomington Illinois Calendar - Music Under the Stars) and Normal’s (Loungeabout the Roundabout & Sounds of the Connie Link Ampitheatre) Parks and Recreation Departments host concerts featuring local bands. We attend these concerts when we can. We enjoy the music and the evening out.
    Since I worked in aviation for 32 ½ years, we attend as many air shows or air show related events that we can get to. We maintain our connection to aviation this way. Aubrey doesn’t seem to mind, since an airshow or related event is usually a minimum two hour drive to get there, we spend all day in the sun and the drive home. We both enjoy the air show events we attend.
   Recently I have noticed Aubrey is reaching the same happy spot as I do when we travel to an event requiring road time on an interstate highway. She prefers travel during daylight hours and our trip home from Omaha on Interstate 80 eastbound in the late afternoon found us to be at peace and thoroughly enjoyable!
    Aubrey and I travel frequently and we hope you have some insight into our world and maybe a little bit of why we do what we do. Questions? Please comment below and I will respond when I can. Please keep in mind we move about, so I may not respond immediately, but I will respond….. Happy and Safe Travels!
Aubrey and Tom
