Sequim, WA – Pokemon makes friends and enemies

Facebook Twitter Sequim, pronounced Skwim, is a little town along the the upper coast of the Olympic Peninsula. Known as the “Lavender Capital of North America”, it’s a sleepy little town full of Chinese restaurants and little craft galleries. We were in town to see what it offered, but more so, to walk around and catch some […]

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. […]

Yuma – the official sunniest place on Earth

Facebook Twitter All the way down from Quartzsite, the view is desert scrub, rocks, and cacti. Then you hit Yuma, and it’s field after field of green produce, citrus and date trees. The biggest cauliflower, and the biggest cabbage, I’ve ever seen, about as big as an adult head. Lemons, oranges, tangelos, grapefruit grow on […]

Beach, ND – It’s freaking cold at the beach here!

Facebook Twitter We took two days to drive across Montana. The west side was more to our liking, with trees and streams and mountains. Once we got to the centre and east side, it was one golden rolling hill after another, without many humans in sight. Even the gas station we stopped at no longer […]

Talk about making your dreams a reality!

Facebook Twitter I’ve had these recurring nightmares throughout my life: Showing up to school on a holiday and having the teacher make me stay – sometimes I show up without clothes, but that’s always on a regular school day, when I can feel the utter horror. Sailing off the end of a bridge or cliff. […]

On the fringe, and off the grid — Slab City, CA

Facebook Twitter Slab City or The Slabs started off in 1942 as a Marine Corp base named Camp Dunlap, but was dismantled in 1956. Some years later a chemical company in Oakland, California hired 20 men to harvest creosote leaves near Niland. Some of the workers moved closer to their work by living in small trailers […]

We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert …

Facebook Twitter We drove south to Bakersfield where we stayed at the local Costco for the night. On the pro side for staying at Costco, it closes early, and then we were the only ones in a private lot. It was very quiet and felt very safe. On the con side, we had to wait […]

Does honesty always pay or is it painting me inside the lines?

Facebook Twitter We did a final check of our fridge just moments before handing it over to Camping World, and wouldn’t you know it … it worked! So we saved our cash, and headed on down the road, hoping it continues to work. We figured it must have been Harold cleaning up the connections and […]

Stalking the band

Facebook Twitter Driving from Yreka, CA to the Seven Feathers Casino, in Canyonville, OR, we were passed by an interesting looking bus. By the time I realized that I wanted to know what it was and get a picture of it, it was quite far ahead of us. Due to the traffic, it became a […]
