A few weeks ago I wrote about the woes of owning a roof top tent. While I didn’t just up and ditch mine, I did purchase what I considered to be a high-quality ground tent: the Gazelle T4 Plus Hub Tent. If you’ve spent any time researching ground tents, you’re familiar with that sinking feeling…… Continue reading Gazelle T4 Plus Hub Tent Review
When I consider things that have physical, objective value, I can’t really come up with much. I mean, people will always maintain that Gold is the standard of objective value, or some precious metal. Look, I’ve read Ayn Rand and she never considered Bitcoin. I don’t know much about precious metals or digital currency. What…… Continue reading We Bought Land
We got snow. This happens occasionally. When it does, it’s really awesome. Over the past few days, we’ve had a lot of (much needed) rain in the desert. The temperature dropped enough to create a tiny bit of snow where I live, which is very unusual. My kids went nuts. I’m currently living in my…… Continue reading Snow in the Desert
I’m not a YouTuber, but I did make this little video a few weeks ago. My son and I went on a day trip with the Arizona Land Rover Owners Group to Montana Mountain. I had never been on this trail before and really enjoyed it. The entire trail is very scenic and challenging enough…… Continue reading Off Road Trip to Montana Mountain
I’m writing about this topic at a very particular moment in time. I’m still delirious from lack of sleep, sore from hanging on my truck’s roof rails like a monkey and downright grumpy from a horrible camping experience. But, I wanted to at least start this blog post now, while all of the benefits and…… Continue reading Roof Top Tents – Are They Worth It?
I have a penchant for unreliable British automobiles. Not really. I just gravitate to the style of Jaguar and Land Rover, which happen to have a (well-earned) bad reputation. It all started with a screaming deal on a 2004 Jaguar XJR. I drove that super charged luxury land yacht for 4 years. I enjoyed it…… Continue reading The Story of my Land Rover Discovery 2
The kids where exposed to the virus at school on Monday. This really sucks because it screwed up a lot of plans. But, what are you going to do? I’ll tell ya what, stay away from them and send them outside, that’s what. They kept busy and nobody is sick so far. Hoping it stays…… Continue reading Rona Exposure
At the beginning of a new year, on that shiny new first day, I make it a point to shoot some meaningful photos. In part because they’ll say 1/1/theyear in the time stamp and that’s fun. Also because my whole photo workflow revolves around being organized in year, month, day folders. The new year marks…… Continue reading First Photos of 2021
As I predicted in my first blog post, I would loose interest in writing here and would not post often. Yup. I know me pretty well. But, I think I know why I failed to post more often. My interests wain. I have had a consistent interest in photography for the past 10 years. But,…… Continue reading A Change
Yep. It’s just a bucket. For whatever reason, I really like this photo and I keep looking at it again. I’m not sure what’s appealing about it. I mean, it is bathed in delicious golden hour light. The tones are really nice. But, it’s just a bucket.
