Cinco de Cairo is a great day to be in San Antonio!

Facebook Twitter In my family, we call the 5th of May Cinco de Cairo. It’s the day my daughter, Cairo was born, so it’s a natural match for us. Today we were not with her, but instead we’re in San Antonio, and there was a lot going on. We wandered around the downtown river walk […]

Sleeping with the band in San Antonio!

Facebook Twitter Our neighbours tonight at Casa Walmart are the Relampaguitos, a travelling band, from Mexico. From their site: With the aim of keeping northern music alive, Relampaguitos was born, a group from Monterrey, Nuevo León. Rescuing the original sound and style made famous by Los Relámpagos del Norte in the sixties and making it […]

Onwards into New Mexico

Facebook Twitter When I think of New Mexico, it’s all about Breaking Bad. I’m sure New Mexicans roll their eyes at people like me, just like the Lodi people do about Sons of Anarchy fans. I’ve been here before and I definitely know it’s more than one tv show – no matter how amazing that […]

Burning Man – It’s hang out at home Friday

Facebook Twitter After the most amazing, perfect day that was yesterday, it was appropriate that today should be a quieter, relax, and recover day. The PantyDome across the way had an unadvertised Panty give-away party. They had hundreds of new-in-the-package panties and they were giving them away to passers-by along with a vodka punch. We ended […]

Burning Man – It’s tutu Tuesday!

Facebook Twitter On Tuesday, we’re a little sluggish and slow to get going. I go through the book, write a bunch of events down, ready our backpacks with water and supplies and eventually, we’re off. This is my lunchtime list. It’s just a small portion of the events available at that time. Just the one’s that […]

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 […]

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. […]

Graze Restaurant & the Twilight Drive-in – Vancouver

Facebook Twitter For our second vegan restaurant foray, Harold and I met my parents at the Graze Restaurant on Fraser street, in Vancouver. I had high expectations for this place, after seeing the photos of the food online. Downstairs, they have a more formal dining area where they serve three course meals, and upstairs is an indoor […]

Jazz, murder and the Brady Bunch?

Facebook Twitter One of the more atypical things we did was to accompany my brother up to the Vitello’s Restaurant in Studio City. Vitello’s is a great looking old style Italian Jazz and Supper Club. Since the 60’s they’ve been hosting jazz, cabaret, and world music shows for both local acts and musicians traveling through […]
