California camping [4]

This will be the last installment of this mini series from October 2002. We left Death Valley and headed even further south, through the Mojave Desert and on to Salton City and Borrego Springs. We had a campsite reserved in the Anza-Borrego State Park. Again, there were very few campers around and we had a great choice of site. The rustic shade shelter and stone picnic table at our site, with the Jeep and Collette, of course. Some of the sites available included beautiful stone shelters with l...

California camping [3]

After our chilly night in the tent, we spent the next night in a motel. That next day we visited the ghost town of Bodie, then saw Mono Lake, but not for the first time. I can't remember if we spent a second night in the motel, but we must have. The good ol' Jeep at our Furnace Creek campsite in Death Valley, California, 2002.

California camping [2]

Just a few more shots of our first day out on this trip back in 2002. The car is my 1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport. It was a great vehicle. I was commuting in it at first, but after I got the job in the city I used the subway to go back and forth to work. The car became our weekend errand and recreational vehicle. The '92 Jeep with its roof rack and "basket case." I fitted the Jeep with a roof rack for bikes, then I got an attachment for the rack called "the basket case," or something funny like tha...

California camping [1]

Set the WABAC machine to October 2002. Ken and I took a camping trip through eastern California. We left San Francisco and headed up and over the Sierra Nevada mountains to our first destination on the eastern side, a campground near Twin Lakes. At some point, we stopped for lunch. Then, as we climbed up over the Sonora Pass, it started to snow. Not a great beginning, but it wasn't a big storm and we made it through. It started snowing as we drove over the mountains. This is a car on the road ...

Throwback Thursday

Ken found some old photos on one of his disk drives the other day. I had forgotten about them. Some were photos that I took while Ken was away from home, using one of his digital cameras. These two were taken in September of 2002. We were still living in California. I drove up to Auburn from San Francisco to see our friend Sue, and our dog Collette came with me, of course. We visited a couple of wineries near Sue's house there. Me and Collette, happy in the grass. She was a great dog! She was ...

From a Year on the Road | By Larry Mogelonsky

As 2018 draws to a close, I'm taking stock: a month in Japan, a wedding in Australia, three work trips to Europe, eight sojourns to the USA and half a dozen domestic journeys (within Canada). I don't think of myself as a road warrior but rather an enthusiastic traveler, with the former classification reserved for those who 'have to' and the latter for those that 'want to' travel.

Stay in the Middle of the Magic at the Disneyland Hotel, Anaheim

My head hit the pillow and I snuggled down into a soft cloud. Oh My goodness this bed is comfortable. I felt the exhaustion drain out of my body and my last thoughts before slipping into dreams of magic carpet rides was, “Oh this is exactly what the body needs after a long day at Disneyland.” And then at 5:05 I woke up. No alarms needed. I felt refreshed, alert and in awe of how I had slept like a log (not a baby as they don’t sleep). The girls had succumbed to the comfort that evening as well....

This post 2018: 6 Countries, 32k Miles, And Some BIG Changes appeared first on The Professional Hobo. While spending December 2018 at a friend’s place in Florida, I was trying to remember when I did “that crazy detox retreat” in Thailand. Looking back, it felt like it was at least a year prior. When I realized it was actually only earlier the same year, I was floored. For some reason I thought 2018 had been more sedentary than it was; I couldn’t possibly have visited six countries – including si...

How to save on New Orleans Attractions with the New Orleans Sightseeing Pass

I totally geek out on discounted attraction passes. Why? Because I love tours. They offer you insight into the local history and culture that you may not necessarily pick up on your own. Sometimes you can. You can spend hours wandering and reading plaques, but that can be an exhausting experience. Depending on your mood for the day (and distractions) you may only take some of it in. And you don’t get the local lore and myths woven in – those stories that leave you wondering if you’ve just been h...
