Victoria Falls

5 Years Ago: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

We departed Chobe National Park via bus on Friday, November 4. A two hour ride that ended at the welcome sign of the Kazungula border post. Possibly the only real hassle of our entire trip, the border post was either understaffed or badly managed, a very long line of people jammed up in the heat. … Continue reading 5 Years Ago: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

5 Years Ago: Ngoma Safari Lodge, Chobe National Park

On November 2, we flew out of the small airstrip at Kadizora Camp to the city of Kasane, and from there drove to our next stop at Chobe National Park. Ngoma Safari Lodge was perched on a hillside overlooking the Chobe River, with virtually every seat in the house getting a premium view. Five years … Continue reading 5 Years Ago: Ngoma Safari Lodge, Chobe National Park

5 Years Ago: Kadizora Camp

Monwana Lodge at Thornybush was a great way to start our safari adventure. They had all of the big five African game animals, and we had closeup experiences with them all. That's the benefit of a game reserve that's relatively compact in size. The Okavango Delta, our next stop, is much more vast and open. … Continue reading 5 Years Ago: Kadizora Camp

Monwana Game Drive

5 Years Ago: Monwana Lodge

For a long time, my favorite fishing hat was a black ball cap with the California Republic bear on it that I bought at the Laguna Seca racetrack sometime in the mid-2000s. I'd forgotten to bring a hat to work, you see, so was forced to pay track-side concession prices to keep my pale bald … Continue reading 5 Years Ago: Monwana Lodge

Five Years Ago: Revisiting an African Adventure

I realized the other day that five years has passed since Mom invited me to go with her on an African adventure. It was just about as amazing as you might imagine, just from those two words, "African adventure". Back then, I posted photos to Instagram at the end of each day's exploration, but Instagram … Continue reading Five Years Ago: Revisiting an African Adventure

Last Days of Summer

The first day of fall is approaching fast, Wednesday the 22nd. I've spent the last days of Summer 2021 around the northern part of Yellowstone National Park. Yesterday the weather took a marked turn and this morning the hills and mountain peaks are all frosted with snow. The overcast skies and and push of fresh … Continue reading Last Days of Summer

2021 Interior Renovation

Home Renovations for 2021

This April marked the beginning of my sixth year living out of this 2006 Funmover. They really don't build these things for full time living, and it actually voids the warranty if you do so. Some of the cheap materials and poor construction techniques are really shockingly bad. Chipboard held together with staples, for the … Continue reading Home Renovations for 2021

Eastbound Again -A Stop at Lamoille Canyon, Nevada

I'm headed to Colorado again to finish up a job I started there back in 2016. In 2015, my first year traveling in my Funmover RV, I stopped at Lamoille Canyon in June and enjoyed a few great days flyfishing up and down the creek. I visited again in 2018 on my way to Montana, … Continue reading Eastbound Again -A Stop at Lamoille Canyon, Nevada

Less Than 24 Hours Remaining to Bid on the 215 V8 Bugeye Sprite

We are inside of 24 hours remaining on the auction at BringaTrailer.com! I'm chewing my fingernails off over here, as there's hardly any chatter going on in the comments. Despite having felt at times like this car was a terrible use of my time (650 hours documented, folks!) I have always felt warm and fuzzy … Continue reading Less Than 24 Hours Remaining to Bid on the 215 V8 Bugeye Sprite
