Videos from the road. West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. The early days

TThis is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville North Carolina. It is the nations largest home and was built by George Vanderbilt one hundred and seventeen years ago. It has forty three bathrooms, thirty four bedrooms, and sixty five fireplaces. I paid nearly fifty dollars to do the walk through tour the day that I visited … Continue reading

Day 119 Walking under giants

Today was the day I had patiently waited for. The day where I would do nothing other than bask in one of our planets greatest treasures. The redwoods. I had a full foggy, damp day to take it all in. A dark, seclusive morning greeted me at Humbolt Redwoods State Park. Again I barely got … Continue reading

Day 111 La Jolla

Sleeping overnight was a pain in the rear with the pain in my thumb. I couldn’t get the throbbing to stop, even if my thumb wasn’t touching anything. It’s hard to find a position to lay in where your hand remains elevated and your thumb isn’t resting on something. Eventually pure fatigue set in and … Continue reading

Day 103 Worlds come together

The rain finally stopped in Corona and it was time to get packing and head west, back to the ocean, this time to Santa Monica to meet some fellow travelers and friends. Before I get on with that craziness, I have to describe the long way round, detour, that I took to get back to … Continue reading

Day 95 Family

Day 95, a BIG day, and it all started at 4am. I woke up in my lavish tent at the Lake Mead campground with the wheels turning in my head. Night time is the greatest time for solid thinking. Being a really light sleeper, I get more than my share of this quite time and … Continue reading

Day 93 A timeout from Las Vegas

Three hours after falling asleep around 7 am, I was back up and seriously thinking about just renting the room again so that I could get a few more hours of shut eye. Checkout time was at 11 am and I was sooooo tired. Getting the room again would require a short groggy walk to … Continue reading

Day 89 All fired up

Although seeing downtown Las Vegas from my room at the Americas Best Value Inn was no problem, I didn’t realize until morning that I was actually within the Henderson Nevada city limits and not actually in Las Vegas. I wasn’t bothered by that fact though. One look at sin city in the morning from afar … Continue reading

Day 88 Havasu to Hoover

I got started at sunrise in Lake Havasu State Park. I packed up camp and headed to Dennys for breakfast and wi-fi. Dennys had no wi-fi, so I swung by ┬áBurger King, which also had no wi-fi. Then I just had to suck it up and head to the one place that I knew would … Continue reading

Day 86 Outstanding others, Oatman, and Offroading

A morning that was warm enough for a tee shirt! YES! My little desert hideout behind Mike’s Outpost and Saloon proved to be a good start to an amazing day. It didn’t take long to pack up and hit the road. The plan was to make it to Lake Havasu by nightfall and stop by … Continue reading

Day 81 lame to wild

A few things about the Grand Canyon National Park first. The part of the Grand Canyon that the park service maintains is the eastern portion. The western portion is owned by Native Americans. (that is where the sky walk is) This eastern portion is covered in thick forest. That threw me off when I first … Continue reading
