This straw business is H.A.R.D!

At the start of the year, I vowed to give up straws, for the ocean. It’s easy at home – we don’t go out for meals much, and when we do, I rarely order soft drinks, and if I do, I quickly say “no straw!” They never give you a straw for water. In California, […]

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

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 during the […]

Athens, Greece – Double decker day 2 couldn’t be more different

When I purchased my ticket for the double decker bus tour, I was wondering if I’d even use the second day. What was I gonna do -the very same circuit all over again? But as it all turned out, the second day, while following the very same route, was the exact opposite of the day before. […]

Burning Man – It’s hang out at home Friday

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 up making […]

Burning Man – It’s Can’t Say No Thursday

Today is Socially Appropriate Menstruation Day – “Wear white pants with no underwear. Let the blood make it’s artistic mark!” Okay, yeah, there is no way I will ever be this free. Today is also Can’t Say No Thursday – “Say Yes to everything asked of you today and be amazed where it takes you!” I said an […]

Burning Man – It’s tutu Tuesday!

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 most appeal […]

Reno is Burning Man central

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 heathens and […]

Los Algodones, MX – the place for cheap dental work and pharmaceuticals

Los Algodones is the place to go if you want cheap dental work or pharmaceuticals. Like all the other border towns, nobody even talks to you when crossing the border. We parked on one side, walked through a short pathway and then we were across the border and right into town. As soon as we […]

Quartzsite at the right time of the year

Quartzsite is a tiny little town in western Arizona 20 miles east of the Colorado river, the stateline to California. The first time we came through, last April, the place was deserted. It was out of season and unseasonably scorching hot. The time to come here is January when the RV show is on and […]

Peachland and Kelowna, BC

We relocated up the valley to a small camp-ground in Peachland, overlooking the lake, with a road that winds down into an suburban area of condos, homes, restaurants, pubs, and a great coffee place. It reminds us both of Birch Bay, with the waterfront road and small town-suburban feel. Our site was right at the front, but it […]
