It's a BLOG as well as a VLOG  


Originally, I intended to only produce video entries and have this be a Video blog or VLOG... but I think I need to write as straight blogging it is.

I do have some more footage up through burning man and a couple clips from San Francisco. However, I did leave my digi cam charger in SF. I had my cousin send it to me and I should get it in a day or two. I have been without it for a week and unable to compile footage of my travels thru Nevada to the western slope of Colorado.

tonight, I am sitting in my truck in downtown Paonia, Colorado. This little town is in the heart of the north fork valley. that's the north fork of the Gunnison river. This place has such an amazing energy to it... very fertile, alive, giving, comforting... hard to describe.

I've been here about a week. The local people I have met have taken me in to their community so quickly... it really feels great! In fact, it looks like I might actually get some work at the local pizza shop in trade for some food and drink while I am here. How cool is that !?!

This weekend is their Harvest Festival. It was HIGHLY suggested that I stick around for the festivities. Four bands in four venues, all night saturday... full moon tonight leading into the weekend... beer, music, food...OK...twist my arm.

Within a week I should be over the rockies and catching up with the Uncovering America by Horseback crew. They are heading south from cheyenne down east of denver.

I am surfing off the wireless of the Paonia library and just about ready to call it a night and drive out to a little section of public land to call it a night.

More later...

Episode 6? Dog bites Man  


First of all, I need to re-edit this video. Somehow, it has a bunch of double audio glitches. But I wanted to get it up here anyway for now. Also, I am getting tired of calling these episodes and keeping track what number is next. From now on, just little clip edits and that's it.... whatever, right?

Here, I stop in Cokeville, WY at the home of the John and Celeste Jackman. They were gracious and generous hosts. Yummy chocolate chip cookies too!

John, a local deputy, let his K9 dog eat my arm.

Episode 5 - Building Burritos  


Eating on the road can be cheap, fairly quick and rewardingly delicious. Black bean burritos with kiwi habanero guacamole is one of my favorites.

Episode 4 - Searching for a Hot Spring  


One of my favorite things to do is find a pristine, steaming hot spring to soak my cares away. Here I am in eastern Idaho doing a little search for some GPS coordinates from to find a supposed hot spring in the area.

This one was not so great.

Back in civilization  


Hi.....I've been behind on updates because I haven't had internet access for a week. I wanted this to be as close to real time as possible, but now I will need to play catch up.

I'm just got off the playa at burning man Friday. Crashed in Reno for a night, then to South Lake Tahoe to clean out the back of my truck. Wow... the dust! I just got into Berkeley last night and crashed with some new friends. Now I am in San Francisco at my cousin Paul's. Check out his film, Bus Trip. Within a couple weeks I will meet back up with the Uncovering America team.

Meanwhile, I still need to spit out some old clips from Idaho and Wyoming. Nothing as exciting as burning man, but still... if you want to see me make a burrito and my favorite guacamole, then stay tuned!
