Burning Man 2015 – Where do we start?

Facebook Twitter When they took our tickets on the way in, they gave us a book and a map. The book is our guide to Burning Man. It details all the events going on (well, all those that made it into the book. We’ll find many others during the week that never made it in) […]

Reno is Burning Man central

Facebook Twitter I’d read that it was a good idea to buy everything you need well before you hit Reno since 70,000 people descending on the town at once can decimate the stock they have there. That was obviously advice from a few years back. Turns out Reno is more than ready for all the […]

In trouble with the Susanville, CA cops

Facebook Twitter The last couple of times we came through Susanville, I had thought the town looked cute and wished we’d made time to stop and check things out. This time, the place looked seedier. I don’t know if it’s having my Reno friend’s opinion of the place in my head, or if the town […]

Bypassed the Burner’s campground – Eugene, OR to Yreka, CA

Facebook Twitter The Valley Center Mall in Eugene, OR is a great place to stop and boondock. They allow RVs to stay up to 48 hours in the very back lot, which is right beside the walking/bike paths alongside the river and delta. We took the dogs for a hike and saw all sorts of wildlife. […]

The border guard thinks we’re a couple of middle-aged fools

Facebook Twitter “Where ya headed?” barked the border guard. Harold backed his body up, and looked at me, waiting for me to speak. I leaned over as I responded. “We’re going to Nevada.” “What are ya planning to do in  Nevada?” “We’re going to Burning Man!” I’d read it was a bad idea to admit […]

Burning Man 2015 – Carnival of Mirrors

Facebook Twitter It was somewhere in the early to mid 1990’s when I first heard of Burning Man. I think it may have been in the hacker magazine I used to read back then, 2600 or it may have been one of the newsgroups I used to read on BBSes, or even a Usenet group once […]

Craft Beer Sampling: Steamworks Brewery

Facebook Twitter Steamworks is not much to look at from the outside. It’s a plain brown brick building with the brewery and offices taking one end, and the tap room in a scalene triangle shaped room at the other. At the head of the triangle is the entry, containing a very old wood panelled car, and […]
