Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who only dream at night. - Edgar Allan Poe

Wendover, NV – I’m Bill Murray and this is Groundhog Day

Monday morning: We heard back from BJ at State Trailer Supply this morning. They don’t have any of our axles in stock, so we need to special order it and it won’t be here until September 24th. That means we’re stuck here for 10 days, if we go with them. We got the info for […]

Salt Lake City – a different kind of pilgrimage

The town of Wendover is split right down the center. The casino side is in Nevada, the seedier side is in Utah. We’re about a block from Nevada here. Harold just pointed out to me that we’re now in mountain time, but a block up the road it’s Pacific time. So which 10am did the […]

Wendover, NV – Triple A We have a problem

We’re halfway between Elko, NV and Salt Lake City, UT. It’s a gorgeous afternoon, we’re sailing along, still gliding on the high of the previous week. Harold looks into his rear view mirror and says, very casually, “We may have a problem back there.” “What kinda problem? What’s going on?” I question him. He’s so […]

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 […]

In trouble with the Susanville, CA cops

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 has really […]

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

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. Nutrias, otters, […]

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

“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 you were […]

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 […]
