We are in Kansas Dorothy!

September 3, 2007 We are in Kansas Dorothy! And boy is it flat. OK, here are the subject lines if I had written an e-mail every day. Friday: I am so stupid, stupid, stupid Saturday: This is absolutely mind blowing Sunday: I just want to get home Monday: This is a small world/what does it […]

Lake Tahoe to Ely

Posted by | Filed under 2007 Road trip, Nevada | Jun 12, 2015 | Comments Off on Lake Tahoe to Ely

 August 30, 2007 What a day, rain, gray skies, creepiest place on earth, awesome sunlight, moonlight dinner. What else can anyone ask for? I could have done without the creepy place, more about that in a bit. For now, I am going to skip my journey from Bellingham to San Francisco. It will follow, but […]

On the road again – going home

Posted by | Filed under 2007 Road trip, Archive, Nevada | Jun 11, 2015 | Comments Off on On the road again – going home

August 30, 2007 What a difference a day or two make.  After two beautiful days of rest at Lake Tahoe with my friends Lynn and Doug, I am off going east on highway 50.  My battery is recharged, my eyes are rested and I am ready for the home stretch.  I got tons of sleep […]

Birds and coyotes

Posted by | Filed under California, Nevada | Apr 1, 2011 | Comments Off on Birds and coyotes

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 on Finally and too much of a good thing

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

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 on Still in Nevada

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 […]
