Apr 17, 2017 - Final days 'on the dunes'

4/17 Soon after the Jette departure we began the camp 'take down'... We were able to meet up with Moonstone for a dinner 'party' at her wonderful home. Plus, a lunch with Terry and Maxine ... Lots of chatting about 'The Situation' and what's to become of it, us, US, etc...No answers, only questions and anger and trepidation...

Apr 12, 2017 - Jettes in Baja

4/12 We have been tripping around ... beaches, mountains, Baja Beans, La Paz, La Ventana, etc. Rustic camping does not seem to be too hard for the family although, I know they miss their showers and other comforts of home. I must say this will definitely be my last trip down camping. Been fighting a cold, cough, and general tiredness. With the hot days and very cold nights the Jettes have been trying to acclimate...not enough warm stuff for a good night sleep. Plus, their first day on the beach they were not aware of how fast the sun...

Apr 4, 2017 - Carter's Appeal

This Isn't the Real America By Jimmy Carter The Los Angeles Times Monday 14 November 2005 In recent years, I have become increasingly concerned by a host of radical government policies that now threaten many basic principles espoused by all previous administrations, Democratic and Republican. These include the rudimentary American commitment to peace, economic and social justice, civil liberties, our environment and human rights. Also endangered are our historic commitments to providing citizens with truthful information,...

Mar 29, 2017 - Onward to Todos with short stop in La Paz

3/29 Since we had to stay in a luxury suite in Constitucion, we had wifi of course and got caught up, ha! TV had tons of stations but of course all Spanish. I'm needing to catch up my Spanish, and you know how fast the English goes now days on TV (I miss half of it now unless I'm totally focused on it)! Well , forget the Spanish language stations! We were amazed at the progress made on the highway from Constitucion to La Paz, only a couple stretches remain before it is totally new and WIDE! Amazing... It took only a bit over 3 hours to...

Dec 3, 2015 - Dunes from Dec. 3 to 24

Bon and I spent considerable time at Esquina, Cafe Todos Santos, and several other local establishments in and about town as well as 2 Sunday trips to Baja Beans for our favorite carrot cake. We both have come to the conclusion thst we're done camping here in the future - 15 years is long enough and with privacy a much bigger issue we're not in the mood to bare ourselves before the world anymore. Not that we're shy but more that the public has changed here ( higher end and less tolerant). On the bright side, of the 42 plants I've put in...

Nov 27, 2015 - Dunes 11/27-29

11/27,8,&9 The day after Thanksgiving reports indicate that the storm may bring high winds...the kind our tents cannot withstand. So we opt for caution and hunker down. Plus everyone is tired and an off day is required...we dry and organize our gear for assembly tomorrow. Today skies are still cloudy and it's very humid.  We opt for seeing La Paz first then go swim and set up camp -again.   Once in La Paz, a real Mexican city, we walk the malecon and settle on a nice little MX restaurant with good MX food. Over an hour later (@ 3) we leave...

Nov 26, 2015 - THANKSGIVING

11/26 THANKSGIVING The entire adult family is in an uproar...kids handling well.  Issues re: tents, sleeping, promises,  miscommunications...all the regular stuff but 2 very stubborn people at loggerheads causing much confusion among the remaining folk. I get up early because we need the big tent erected to get out of the sun. Takes me by myself 1+ hours securing corners with deadmen so winds do not blow it away.  Next I need to erect an outhouse but require a shovel.  I just happen to run into David our neighbor from run into David our...

After landing, collecting our bags, shuttle to Cactus car rental, taking care of $$, loading up the 3 cars...we go to Costco for our first 'Mexican' meal, ha! We arrive after dark and amid some confusion we decide it best to wait setting up camp for tomorrow. Up since before 5 all are tired and actually I'd say exhausted!

Mar 24, 2015 - Mexico - Todos Santos

From Cabo San Lucas, I took the bus north to La Paz, with a 4 hour stop in Todos Santos, home of the Hotel California. It turns out it isn't the real one because the Eagles song doesn't refer to a real hotel, it is a metaphor for the excess of the life of a rock star. But it was still a neat hotel, has been nicely renovated, in a little town with a Mission and nice craft shops, and a place across the street from the Hotel that makes "the best margaritas”.
