No Home for Me
Thursday, Sep 21, 2017

Next time I’m in California, I think I’m going to decide which laws I want to follow. Since so few seem to adhere to the speed limit anyway, I think I will follow those laws – but I don’t think I will follow laws concerning private property. I could take the shortcuts overland with my truck....

DAPL: Attacking the Indians Again
Saturday, Oct 8, 2016

I’ve been reading a lot about the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) of late. I have a huge interest in that project. You see, my father once lived on or near the Rosebud Reservation when my grandmother taught school there. Because of that, I know that many of the attitudes he had came from that time. His...

Potty Talk
Thursday, Oct 6, 2016

For those of you who don’t know, I’m once again an expatriate. I’m living in the hottest little city in the United States – Bullhead City, Ariz. That means I like hot temps, low gas prices and the Laughlin casinos just on the other side of the river. It also means I’m no longer one of “Jerry’s...

Bullet Trains and Cow Farts
Thursday, Aug 11, 2016

Just when I was thinking California’s High Speed Rail Authority couldn’t sink to a lower level of deception and lies, it does just that. It looks like it has been taking lessons from the Chiquita Canyon Landfill folks. You know those folks – the company that donates all kinds of money to all kinds...

Chloride Gunfights
Friday, Jul 1, 2016

We have been able to visit a couple of very old mining towns not far from Bullhead City, Ariz. I don’t feel so bad about Mentryville after seeing them. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love both of those little towns and enjoyed visiting, but one thing I kept thinking about was how the buildings in Mentryville...

Chillin’ by the River
Thursday, Jun 30, 2016

It was a little cooler today at the camp by the river … being only 115 degrees with some winds that felt like a hair dryer blowing in my face, and arms, and legs, all at once. Just another summer day in Bullhead City, Ariz., as I am told by the locals. Very few tourists here at this time of year....

Gas Price Manipulation?
Monday, Mar 28, 2016

If the California High Speed Rail Authority folks want us to ride that train, they first have to get us out of our cars. I think they might be working with oil companies to get it accomplished. There is a little matter of increasing taxes on every gallon of gasoline and extra environmental regs that...

Planned Obsolescence
Thursday, Mar 17, 2016

In 10 to 15 years we could have a high-speed railroad come through our little valley. By that time, the trains they are planning to use will be of technology developed as early as the first streamliner trains in the 1930s. Designs that will be approaching 100 years old and still on steel wheels making...

Journey’s End
Friday, Mar 11, 2016

It is a dark and stormy night as I write this. Raining so hard, the satellite TV signal can’t get through, and my cell is having a bit of the same problem. Just like at the start of this journey, the weather is controlling my movements. It isn’t fun driving a 40-foot-long RV pulling a Jeep in a torrential...

Batteries Not Included
Friday, Mar 4, 2016

If you drive around the city of Gilroy, you get the idea the folks here are very proud of their town. It is the garlic capital of the world, and I’m sure if I looked for it, I could find some of that famous garlic ice cream. Today there seems to be an undercurrent of dissatisfaction. Like many other...
