Birds and coyotes

Posted by | Filed under California, Nevada | Apr 1, 2011 | Comments Off

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 […]

Finally and too much of a good thing

Posted by | Filed under Nevada | Mar 25, 2011 | Comments Off

Good things happen when you least expect them to. Ever since I arrived here a couple of months ago, I have been asked if I had seen any bighorn sheep yet. No, despite having hiked in areas the sheep hang out; we had come across their droppings and bedding but never seen any sheep. I […]

My backyard

Overton is a small town. There are no fixed population numbers to be found anywhere, but during the winter months the population increases by a couple of hundred. Snowbirds from the northern states, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and even Canada, come down here to escape the deep freeze and all that snow in their states. The […]

A year in review

Posted by | Filed under Alabama, California, Nevada, Utah | Mar 13, 2011 | 4 Comments

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 […]

Things are not always what they appear to be

The following are random thoughts that came to me just before I went to sleep. I grabbed some paper and a pencil and jotted them down. When I looked at them in the morning it seemed like there was a disconnect between the two strings of thought. However, I have been mulling this over for […]

Still in Nevada

Posted by | Filed under Nevada | Feb 15, 2011 | Comments Off

In the beginning it was the cold weather further east that kept me from moving on. Then, I had to get things done, taxes, websites, before I moved on. But then I had and still have this apprehension of moving east, because with every step east I would move closer to New York and to […]

Finally, I put some great photos on the Photo tab, take a look. I have also been working on a new website for the last couple of days. I hope to reveal it later this week. This will make it easy for everyone to view and hopefully, buy my photos. When I am not slaving […]

Things you find in the desert and more

As promised in my last post this one is about my travels, mostly. I had to go back to Las Vegas to get my camper re-fixed. The first repair job had a couple of flaws that needed to be fixed. From Tonopah I headed south on highway 95 to Beatty. Once again, it’s a big […]

Simple things are simply the best

I am back in Overton, Nevada where the weather has been wonderful. I have defrosted and I am sitting in the sun, in the back of my truck atop the Mormon Mesa as I am writing this. I have been on the road now for a little over ten months and I am suppose to […]

Quick trip to Manhattan

Posted by | Filed under Nevada | Jan 20, 2011 | 4 Comments

Yup, it’s been too long. It was a relatively quick ride. I did, however, get stuck in the snow on my way to Manhattan, but don’t blame Mayor Bloomberg. OK, let’s clarify. I did drive to Manhattan, but the Manhattan in Nevada, population 28. Yes, there was a Manhattan Storage, just a bit smaller. Before […]
