Today marks one month that I have been without an immovable domicile. I’m a bit behind in my story-telling. I think soon I’ll return to chronicling my return from Pawley’s to Columbia to Knoxville, where I resumed moving stuff in … Continue reading
These are actual quotes from children in Pawley’s Island, as recounted by parents. Seeing that Thor did not try to barge into the house, my hostess commented on Thor’s good manners. Daughter: “Mom, did you know that Thor broke into … Continue reading
First, I gave you the wrong name for my recommended map – it is the “AAA Indian Country Guide Map,” available at AAA or Amazon.com. Before starting I might mention that I have to rely mainly on memory as I … Continue reading
Since you are going to be on the road in the Great NW (you mentioned Portland, Or,) you might be interested in the WetWesties <wetwesties.org> a VW Camping Society with activities primarily in the Washington/Oregon/Idaho/BC area.
On the way out of Quito, after my family and I had arrived at the airport, secured boarding passes, passed through security, and had our bags searched by hand at the gate, we were ready to board. There was an … Continue reading
somewhere where they teach you what the lines are all about in a parking lot as to not block other parkers in their spot and make them walk around their car and wiggle out of thee space you didn’t leavebecause … Continue reading
I’ve had trouble getting back into the swing of posting anything since I got back from Ecuador. I’ve got some pretty good stuff from Ecuador that I hope to get posted Real Soon Now, but last week I had to … Continue reading
With help from Google Maps, I’d planned a seven day trek to Ft Collins, CO (Nashville, Memphis, St. Louis were the notable stopping points). There’s a beer festival in Ft. Collins next Friday, so that seemed like a good target. … Continue reading
Though the counter says that my trip began 51 days ago, which is when I moved out of The Rental, the part where I don’t have anywhere to be for months started last Friday. This post describes a most auspicious … Continue reading
I’ve been to Pike’s Peak twice, and it is awesome! I would not recommend driving your van up the mountain though! Don’t buy into the real men don’t need guard rails sentiment. Take the train.
While you’re in Memphis, check out this museum. It is mostly underground, and one of the best collections of Chinese art in the country. Even if you’re not into Chinese art, it is worth going to see and contemplate the … Continue reading
I thought that staying at the Aaron Presley Boulevard RV Park might make a good story, but I hadn’t anticipated this one. I called the Aaron Presley Blvd RV Park Sunday morning. There was no answer. I didn’t leave a … Continue reading
After spending a day on the couch avoiding the Memphis heat, I headed over to my friend Apolloswabbie’s house. Apolloswabbie is the owner and coach of CrossFit Fire of the Gods and a career Naval officer. Apolloswabbie and I worked … Continue reading
OK. I can’t really figure out how to do justice to all the other stuff that I did in Memphis, but it was now long ago, and I’m about to leave St. Louis, so I’ll have to just mention a … Continue reading
Sure, people will tell you visit Sedona or the Grand Canyon. However, the Haunted Hamburger is a fine site to visit if you have time to wander off to Jerome, Arizona. You can also find a mighty cool junkyard museum … Continue reading
Today, I bid farewell to my long misplaced friend from high school band, the only one, to my knowledge, who actually has made a living playing music. My plan was to hit Kansas City today. Just as I got out … Continue reading
I got up this morning and made coffee, eggs over easy and half a smoked trout. I spent way too long posting about the previous days travels, having to crank the engine twice to produce enough electrons to finish the … Continue reading
House of Balls is my bro-in-law’s gallery/studio/hangout. His name is Allen Christian and he’s a sculptor/creator/marches-to-his-own-drumbeat kind of guy who started out carving bowling balls but now does all sorts of sculpture/creations. People often drop by just to say hi … Continue reading
