Back in my chosen home town...crazy lil' TorC

Nice to be home for a while and I have been busy doing a redux of my Chinook camper van. It now has a permanent bed, the old cabinets are gone and a small kitchen set up on the top of an old military footlocker. I'll post pix soon. It is now much more comfortable with more usable room. I have eliminated a lot of things I don't use regularly and limited things like food and clothes to the same amount we carry in our truck camper. I now can use the original table and I have a nice couch/bed to sit on or nap on.

Now I have Verizon MiFi as an internet device and can let others use my internet access when camped with them if they don't have an internet wireless device of their own.

I also had been using my expensive  Kermit touring chair and have changed to a cheaper and even more comfortable director type chair that I bought in Quartzsite at the large RV show there. I can leave it out at night once in a while now and not worry about losing a $160 motorcycle touring chair.

I just got the sidecar outfit out and took a ride and it felt so good...the weather is just right during the middle of the day. I had thought I had a starter problem that needed to be addressed, but was pleasantly surprised to find it was not so.

Anyway, I will take some photos soon and publish them to the blog....

Happy Trails,

San Felipe, Baja California....

So my friend Paul the adventurer, and I have trekked down to San Felipe to meet up with our friend Mar for a couple of weeks on the beach and camping.

It was great and the food, fabulous but the horrible weather up north has brought winds and cold for the last couple of days and I am inside an awful lot....

Thank goodness for a nice internet cafe across the street where I can hunker down with my lappie and do what I am doing now....

Here are a few shots of our camp and my amigos at Fat Boy's Pizza and Bar downtown.

Mar is industrially teaching her online college courses during the day and Paul an I am wandering around working on our Spanish....we gather for a dinner each evening and go to a different restaurant for something, usually seafood.

I am ready to head back to home but it is just too damn cold there...minus degrees and snow in TorC...yikes...I might as well be in Montana....I could at least see my wifey if I was.....

Soon as it warms a bit I will head north and start a complete redux of my van interior so I can lighten it up and put stuff away a bit better....getting it planned out now and will be ready to slide into the job when I get to TorC.


Some photos ....

Here are some shots from the First Annual Rubbertramp Rondyvous on BLM land near Quartzsite, AZ....The final count was 42 attendees I believe....
