Huntington Beach, CA

March 2020 Worked in Huntington Beach for a week and stayed at the Huntington Beach Inn on Pacific Coast Highway, two blocks from the pier and Main Street. Here’s a short video I made of a walk I took on and around the pier.

Surf City USA

Northern Nevada, Off-roading Adventure

About a month ago I sold my Ural side car motorcycle and bought a used Polaris Rzr that I’m keeping at a friend’s house in Nevada to use when I visit my place and my good friends there. This past Memorial Day weekend I was invited to attend “Weekend on the Walker” (WoW), an event…

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…

Flying from Atlanta to NOLO

My favorite airline seat that I almost always request is the aisle seat. Getting a middle seat is my worst nightmare, I’m a tall guy, the middle seat is not good for me. However, getting a window seat is to me like being a kid on a ride at Disneyland. Staring out the window, seeing…

Landing in Atlanta

August 2017 I’ve been flying on airplanes since I was around 6 years old when my parents would put me on a plane and send me to Chicago Illinois to spend summers with my grandparents. I don’t know why but flying still completely fascinates me every time I get on a plane (which is usually…

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…

Teotihuacan Pyramids, Mexico City Mexico

August 2016 While working in Mexico City Mexico I had an extra day in town and since it was my first time ever to Mexico I was compelled to do some exploring and had heard from a friend about some nearby ancient pyramids from a civilization that pre-dated the Aztecs by over 500 years.
