On the Road Again

Whether you're an on-the-ground looking-up-at-the-stars kind of guy or gal, a car camper, or a glamper -

look at this little pup and smile! CLICK HERE

Some of us like that rugged and rocky boots on the ground approach - moi? I say take your time slot, divide it by two, and however many nights you spend under the stars, that's how many stars the hotel you stay in for the balance of the trip should have (at least! be flexible...).

Don't think you'll use a Happier Camper all that much? FORM A SYNDICATE! Really, we turned a cross-country - around the world combo into a 21-month Tour America Love Fest with KATE, an RV purchased on the East Coast - "Kate" for Kate Smith, because she was wide of girth and Loved America!

You have no idea......but it takes awhile to become a Happier Camper - word is there's a 2-yr wait list. Times a'wastin!

What I Spend....

  VS  

Okay - Albuquerque is 2,466.9 miles from where I like to eat my lobster rolls:

But I still don't think my Sunday supper at Slapfish is a trip worth repeating, even with the gas savings.

The Meal: 2 minuscule cups of New England Clam Chowder, barely potable white wine, a lemonade and a split Lobster Roll.

Check for Two:  $40.

The Alternative: Go to Two Fools, order Fish and Chips (the best in town) and watch The Lobster on Netflix

Or stay at Two Fools and knock back a few Single Malts.

From the Author's website: The Overstory, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.

This one's for you, Maj:

I’m a big fan of whiteboards. I find them quite re-markable.
