Well, it had to happen sooner than later, I am driving east. I left Palm Springs on Sunday (4/3) after spending Saturday at a pool party which was not anywhere as much fun as I had hoped. Hobbling around a pool party is never fun. Even the dinner at a nice restaurant was only half ...Read more.
I had two choices how to drive through the Mojave; either, via the Kelso Depot, the straight line south or a slight detour to the east to the Hole-in-the-Wall. I had the feeling I would regret not going to the Hole-in-the-Wall since I was already so close. Off I went down the dirt road and ...Read more.
When one doors closes another one opens. After almost three months in the same place I am finally back on the road. It was a bitter sweet good bye. I got a nice send off from my friends, including a very sweet care package from Sandy consisting of bananas, apples, some tuna and bread and ...Read more.
The past twelve months have flown by faster than any other that I can remember. It is hard to believe, but it has been a year since I left New York City that cool rainy day in March. And now I am here in Nevada basking in the sun. I once again drove out onto ...Read more.
Wow, let’s go down memory lane. I started writing this post way back in September and never got around to finishing it. Now I have to take a break from photo editing and what better to do than to catch up on my writing. OK, I don’t want to bore you with my coastal explorations. ...Read more.
No it pours. It has rained since Friday afternoon non-stop. I know that some areas need the rain, but three and a half days non-stop is just too much. I spent the weekend in Santa Barbara with Wayne and his wife Jeanine. It would have been nice if we could have walked around town without ...Read more.
From the Anza-Borrego desert to the beach. When I had my camper accident I asked myself why. Things always happen for a reason. I now know why. Without the accident I would have left Southern California a long time ago and I would have missed out on the great beaches and small towns between Oceanside ...Read more.
OK, I dropped off my camper for repair on Monday. The folks at Giant RV are doing their best to get me back on the road by this weekend. In the meantime, I am staying at a little inn in Julian – Julian Country Inn. I spent the afternoon exploring the town. It reminded me ...Read more.
I have spent the last two days in La Quinta at Lake Cahuilla and the surrounding area (Indian Wells, Palm Springs). I can’t remember the last time I have seen so many brick walls surrounding homes. All these gated communities with cookie cutter homes, golf and polo clubs. Driving through these towns was not particularly ...Read more.
Thank you to all my generous donors who supported me this year. I managed to raise $1,695. Unfortunately, I fell short of my goal to raise $4,000. However, it is not too late if you still want to make a donation (click here). I ran the 4 miles with my friend Faith in Dana Point ...Read more.
