Scenes from Cambria California

Cambria is a very beautiful place on the coast of California just south of San Simeon where the famous Hearst’s Castle is located.  The castle is about 2-3 miles north of town.

I’ve been going here for years and have traveled by cars, trucks, RVs, and motorcycles.

It’s a magical place of sorts with a really nice small town that has some good restaurants and shops and they even have a poor man’s version of a castle called Nitt Witt Ridge. More information about this eclectic “house” can be found here https://visitcambriaca.com/itinerary-element/nitt-witt-ridge/

The best hotels in town can be found right on the water on Moonstone Beach Drive, highly recommend staying at one of the many hotels located there.  https://visitcambriaca.com/lodging/

Here’s short movie I made showcasing the beauty of the tiny coastal town of Cambria:

Road Trip to Tennessee

March 2018

This month marks one year that I’ve been living in Georgia since moving from California, and it’s been great, I still really enjoy living here.

That all said, this week I took my first road trip on the east coast to my next work site.
I drove from my house in Georgia heading up north to Oak Ridge Tennessee.

Beale Street, Memphis TN

January 2018

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
W.C. Handy, won’t you look down over me
Yeah, I got a first class ticket
But I’m as blue as a boy can be
Then I’m walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?
– Marc Cohn
(Read on to see my favorite Beale Street photos)

Off-roading in Nevada

February 2018

Went off-roading with friends last weekend in the local hills of Nevada near Wellington / Lake Topaz / Minden / Carson City.

Started out in Topaz Ranch/Wellington and rode out in two off-road side by side rzrs on back country trails up Minnehaha Canyon and over Bald Mountain to an old house in the middle of nowhere built in the 1800’s and then we rode on and checked out the hot springs along the Carson river.

Murals by Diego Rivera, Palacio Nacional de Mexico

March 2015

One afternoon after finishing up work in Mexico City (a few years back), I dropped off my gear at the hotel, called an Uber car and hopped in and headed to the city center at the main plaza to check out some of the local history in the area.

I had heard and read a lot about all the things to see in and around Mexico City and was fascinated by the history to be found there that dated back hundreds of years.

While walking around the plaza that afternoon, I went inside the Palacio Nacional de Mexico where  I was fortunate to see the famous murals created by Diego Rivera.

These murals are rich in Mexico’s deep history and very fascinating to visit and view.

Lake Champlain, Burlington Vermont

August 2017

Took a recent business trip to Montreal Canada and flew into Burlington Vermont to then drive across the border into Canada to my work site.

This was a very interesting, educational and fun trip. By traveling this route ended up saving a good amount of money. It turns out flying into a city near the border was several hundred dollars less costly in airfare than it would have been flying directly into Montreal – plus it was cool that it provided a nice opportunity to explore and experience the local scenery while driving to and from the work location across the border.
