Rod Emory is working on a hard core off-road Porsche Macan Baja

Screenshot: @rodemory on Instagram It seems like off-road Porsches are all the rage these days. We’ve seen totally rad Cayennes from E-Motion Engineering, awesome off-roading in Moab, and even Porsche themselves are getting in on the Cayenne craze. And that’s to say nothing of the safari 911 trend that has been blowing up in this community for the last decade. The next logical progression for Porsche fanatics looking to get deep into the dirt is to start fiddling with Macans. The compact crosso...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: My daughter has moved out. How dare she?

So my 22-year-old daughter, Curly Girl, moved out of our house recently, and I’m trying not to care. This is hard, because I was accustomed to our late-night chats when she got home from her job at the Evil Empire, also known as that place that sells coffee drinks at overinflated prices. She would come into my room after her swing shift, and enliven me as to every moment of her evening at work, including which customers were pleasant, which were complimentary toward her, and which were flat-out ...

17 of the best California Airbnbs including homes near wine country, national parks, beaches, and the desert

Watch This Overlanding Porsche Cayenne Dominate Moab

Hell's Gate is one of the most difficult obstacles in Moab, a steep slick rock face fit for only the most powerful off-road rigs with excellent tires and competent 4WD systems. Porsche wasn't messing around when it built the Cayenne, as it was actually fairly off-road capable from the factory, but it certainly didn't have the talents needed to take on Hell's Gate, or even some of the less strenuous Moab trails. However, the Porsche-engineered clutched differentials are certainly up to the task ...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: I wish my kids would learn these driving tips

This is a message to my adult children, to whom the state in its infinite wisdom has decided to give drivers licenses, even though they should be 30 years old and have to pass a professional race car drivers’ test to get one, in my humble opinion. I realize over the years the state allowed other questionable activities, such as logging old growth redwood forests, and banned others, such as riding a bicycle through a swimming pool. But by far the most questionable decision by the state of Califor...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: So here’s what happened in Baja

So I’m here today to talk to you about travel. Some of you may not remember this concept, because you’ve been hiding in your house for a year like Boo Radley in “To Kill A Mockingbird.” (Yes, I know, I mentioned him last week, but get over it. It’s my favorite new analogy.) Anyway, it’s time to emerge and get some color. You’re starting to look like Casper the Friendly Ghost. I recently went to Baja and came back with a tan. Some of you may recall that I was supposed to go to Guatemala,  but the...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Oops, I’m not going to Guatemala after all

So, apparently I lied to you. I didn’t mean to, not this time anyway. But I told you I was leaving for Guatemala this week, and I’m not. For that, I would like to thank Volaris Airlines, which canceled our flights not once, but twice. The first time they canceled and put us on new flights, they forgot to tell us. Oops. So we only found out almost by accident that we were now supposed to travel on different dates than we were expecting. This of course meant hours of fun, rebooking hotels, contact...

Tips on how to see the elusive bioluminescent neon waves

The biggest question about the mysterious bioluminescence that makes the surf glow a neon blue is where will it show up next? It’s not an easy question to answer, with strong ocean currents, whipping winds and swinging tides pushing around the elusive bloom of bioluminescent phytoplankton that put on a light show when they are disturbed. But something to put on your bucket list is watching as the white crest of the waves explode with an electric blue as they crash on shore, lighting up dark stre...

Why this Southern California botanical garden is unlike most others

If you walk briskly, you could traverse the winding path that runs through the Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden in a very short time. Yet the fact that the garden is small makes each plant that much more precious to behold. Unlike most botanical gardens, where one day is never enough to appreciate everything there is to see, it’s different here. You can take long looks at each specimen on display and not feel you might be missing out on something if you linger more than a few moments over any pa...

2022 Ford Super Duty to Receive New Tech & Styling Updates

Work smarter, not harder. That’s the idea behind the latest tech updates for the 2022 Ford Super Duty. To complement the new range of interior technology, Ford is also offering different styling packages and exterior colors for the 2022 Super Duty. Owners of Super Duty trucks count on their vehicles to handle some of the roughest and dirtiest jobs, but there is no reason you can’t look good and enjoy cool tech while doing it. At least, according to Ford. “Super Duty customers aren’t just work...

Going meatless for Lent? Here’s what fast food restaurants are offering in 2021

The Lenten season is here, and with it, the annual restaurant rollout of seafood and other meatless items to accommodate those who will eschew meat in their diets on various days through Easter. While many restaurants now offer meatless items year-round, these are some of the limited-time menu offerings at fast food chains this year. A&W Restaurants are serving a trio of pub-style baskets, which include fries, coleslaw, and a seafood entrée. Options include three pieces of fried cod, 16 pieces o...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: I looked in my son’s closet

So I did something the other day that I try hard to never do: I entered my son’s bedroom. The doctor has ordered me to avoid stress, so in my world that means staying as far away as possible from the interior of my adult children’s rooms. They could have entire families living in there. I’d never know. It’s been many years, but at one time my daughter Curly Girl had a box full of tiny kittens she’d found in front of the grocery store hidden in her room, and it took me an embarrassingly long time...

Baja 1000 winner challenges Elon Musk to take Cybertruck off-road racing, says it 'wouldn't have a chance'

Tesla Cybertruck. Tesla Jim Glickenhaus, founder of boutique car and race company Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, challenged Elon Musk on Twitter to enter the Cybertruck in 2023's Baja 1000 off-road race.

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: New Year’s resolutions, COVID version

This is the time of year when I always make my New Year resolutions, and I always try to be practical. There isn’t much point in resolving to change when you know there’s really not a chance in hell you’re actually going to do it. Or stop doing it. If you resolve to stop gambling, but you live next door to a casino, or you have that newfangled thing called the internet where you can gamble in far-flung hot and humid countries where the Feds can’t get you, good luck. Here are my top 7 resolutions...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Spending turkey day without turkey

We didn’t have any turkey for Thanksgiving dinner this year.  In fact, we didn’t really have any official Thanksgiving dinner, at least not on the appropriate Thursday, which is the legally required day when women work from dawn to sunset, and men replenish the beer and adjust the color on the TV. I have always loved this holiday, because it’s an excuse to eat a lot of stuffing, but it’s had a special meaning since I adopted my kids 18 years ago. That meaning is: Get out of town. I blessed our s...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Remembering my Baja past

I know lots of you have been to Baja, so you’ll understand how my Thanksgiving trip there this week made me nostalgic about my many visits over the years. Who knows if I ever would have gone, if a colleague at my job in Beverly Hills hadn’t insisted that I drive down with her to Ensenada. She was British, reserved, wore dresses with tiny flowers and those little Peter Pan collars and always seemed to have a stick up her, um, you know. I didn’t have a deep yearning to go anywhere with her. But, f...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: It’s almost Thanksgiving. But we’ll be in Baja

By the time you read this, you’ve already made your plans for this coming Thursday, which — as you know — is all-day happy hour at the Blue Parrot. Just kidding, we all know that it’s Thanksgiving, the day designed to allow women to work from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. cleaning, cooking, serving and then cleaning up again, while the men do the important tasks of watching football and drinking beer. I realize this is a gross, sexist mischaracterization of the day’s events, so all I can say is: Prove me wr...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Drinking wine with the girl child

I’ve been thinking about taking my daughter, Curly Girl, on an overnight mother-daughter trip, during which we will have special bonding time and stuff like that. Well, it wouldn’t be accurate to say I’d be taking her, since I’m not currently driving a car due to one leg that insists it doesn’t have a license. She would be doing the driving, but that’s OK, because she only has one accident a week, so the odds are with us. I can say that here with great authority because she never reads my column...

The 2021 Ford Bronco gets an official debut date

More than three years ago, Ford announced it was bringing back the Bronco after years of customer requests and speculation. The mid-size SUV that ended its 30-year production run in 1996 was supposed to debut in March. Then COVID-19 happened and well everything got cancelled, including numerous vehicle reveals. The reborn Ford Bronco will finally emerge to the media and public — beyond what we’ve already seen thanks to lots of leaked photos — on July 9. Ford announced the date in a post Saturday...
