Feb 13, 2014 - The Weather
Due to the weather, I had to move my flight to LA up a day. My flight was bumpy but I lived. The girl that sat next to me actually lives in Marlton and stayed at the same place in Aruba as I did. I landed at 920 LA time, 1220 home time and got to the hotel that was only 2 miles away over an hour later. I checked into my room took, a shower and at 230 am went next door to Subway and got a hoagie and cookies! I left a cookie for housekeeping. Today I woke up, talked to ATT for an hour trying to fix my phone, and ate a breakfast fit for a...Jump to full entry
Feb 9, 2014 - LA Fieldtrip
Nathan, Christina, & Liala went to visit Christina's family over the weekend and left us with their second car. So yesterday we three took a field trip to Los Angeles. Our first stop was a guided tour through Warner Bros Studio. The tour included a ride through many of the streets that represented several towns from various shows; and then walks through the town center, a house, the car museum, clothing museum, prop warehouse, and Studio 25 where an audience can watch the taping of Warner Bros current TV show, "The Big Bang Theory."

Feb 3, 2014 - "dear dairy"......
report from days 2 and 3: i got out of urban LA pretty quickly and into the more upscale suburban areas and then rural, as you can see from the photos. it’s also quite hilly as i move along the foothills of the san bernardino mountains, so the degree of difficulty of the 20-mile walks has gone up. the weather has been about 50-60 degrees and cloudy, with a few sprinkles. (the mountains got a nice dusting of snow which we took a picture of this morning.) i’m learning a few things – mainly, PAY ATTENTION to the route. this morning i was just...Jump to full entry
Feb 1, 2014 - one down, 249 to go......
so i just finished day 1 of my trek and it went pretty well. (if you ask my body, though, it’s saying “are we really going to do this again for the next 249 days in a row?”) and thanks to the several people who sent me well-wishes beforehand. the weather was sunny and 65 degrees, just what i was hoping for. i did 21.5 miles between venice beach and pico rivera, most of it along the, shall we say, “less attractive” sections of the greater los angeles area. my wife’s with me during this first week, and the joke is, she visited the getty while...Jump to full entry
Feb 1, 2014 - Mexico: Day One
We were up early this morning, packed and ready to get on the ship. :-) We unloaded all of our luggage before parking the car in the parking lot for $12 per day. We checked in and went through customs around 10:00 A.M. We finally got on the ship around noon. We are very pleased with our mini suite. It has a large bath tub, a real luxury after only having a shower in the RV. The sitting room has a sofa and chair as well as a table for room service dining. The balcony is AWESOME! The room also features two brand new smart TV’s. You can watch...Jump to full entry
Jan 31, 2014 - Los Angles
Worked for day then met Wil at the airport. Uneventful flight to LA but we had to wait quite awhile for the wheelchair so we are eating at the hotel. A pretty good group is playing but loud. I am tired. We have to get up early to catch our flight to Mexico City.Jump to full entry
Jan 23, 2014 - intro - what am i doing and why?
thanks for reading my account – and photos i hope to post - of what i think will be a pretty cool adventure. in this first post, i’m going to talk about what i’m doing and why. (and i apologize in advance for my general lack of capitalization; it’s just the way i write. must have missed that day in school!) beginning february 1st, 2014, i’m walking a more-or-less “straight-line” route between los angeles (specifically venice beach) and new york city (specifically coney island). basically i’ve taken the latitude/longitude of each place,...Jump to full entry
Jan 7, 2014 - Happy new year
Firstly a very happy new year to all. May it be happy healthy and safe for all of you. Well it's been about a month since I made an entry. A very busy time for us with Xmas prep and family. We were able to get into our condo early in the morning of the 19 thso we had our truck loaded ( and I mean loaded) all ready to go. We didn't need an esky and was strange being able to pack the food-- even frozen food the night before. A strange concept isn't it. We got up to the mountain and unloaded and put food away and headed back down ( it takes...Jump to full entry
Dec 29, 2013 - Heading Home
28-29 DEC 13 – Los Angeles, California, USA. Days 37-38. Well, yesterday began a slow-motion wrap up of our very enjoyable and exciting journey around North and Central America. As our flight was not until late afternoon and the patients were still only making slow progress, we took our time getting ready. The morning was taken up with packing as carefully as possible, to minimise suitcase disruption during our stay in LA, then we checked out and headed off to Vancouver Airport. Again, we just walked the few hundred metres to the SkyTrain...Jump to full entry
Dec 1, 2013 - Los Angeles Conquered
Hi all Well after a few initial problems with acccommodation and communication, we're now organised and becoming regular tourists. We've covered a few things in our four days in Los Angeles including Universal Studios, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, shopping and more shopping. In hindsight it was possibly not a good idea to fly in on Thanksgiving Day - the positive was lack of traffic which was good for Mick to get his driving skills under control (THE ENEMY ON THE LEFT is the group call whenever we get in the car and at each corner...Jump to full entry

Nov 25, 2013 - Just Cruisin' Along!
25 NOV 13 – At Sea, off the coast of Baja California, Mexico. Day 4. Our first full day afloat was all about exploring and getting into the cruising lifestyle. The Star is not the biggest cruise ship afloat by any means, but at around 91,000 tonnes, she is plenty big enough! There are fourteen decks to explore and most of them have at least a couple of public areas – some are totally public; i.e., no cabins. I won’t go into a detailed description of what is where as that would be very boring, but if you are interested go to ncl.com to see...Jump to full entry
