Anza Borrego wants me dead

The desert wants me dead. The wind blows in , and my synapses go crazy. Last year had me fainting and falling into walls til I was sure I was having a stroke. Doctor took one look in my ears and told me I had water in there. “Spring super bloom causes this!” he said. […]

Taos, NM – Old Town and Rancho de Taos, NM

My overall impression of Taos is that it’s a more hippie-ish version of Santa Fe. It’s a little rougher, a little wilder, and there are a lot of older RVs that move around from one parking lot to another. I’m not being negative – for me, these are all pluses. Add in creativity, amazing food, culture […]

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 Official Life Profit Wednesday

Today is Official Life Profit Day – “Today’s the day to do something you’ve never done before. Then get in the habit of breaking routine  the rest of the year. Cheers to a memorable life!” I’m totally on board with this! The thing that kills my life is when I get into too much of […]

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 […]

Burning Man 2015 – Where do we start?

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) on a […]

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 […]

Burning Man 2015 – Carnival of Mirrors

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 I got access […]

If the Trailer’s rocking don’t come knocking!

“Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.” ~ Jack Kerouac We’ve been sitting here in the Cottonwood Springs BLM lands just south of Joshua Tree National Park for the last three days. It’s not a place whose beauty can easily be seen in a photo. It’s dusty, beige, sandy and scrub brush, on a […]

Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea

The first time I ever heard of the Salton Sea, was in the movie of the same name, starring Val Kilmer. He plays a speed freak addicted to meth, who is also an informant for two corrupt cops. The story seems all over the place and it’s hard to fit it together until finally you […]
