West Coast Summer 2017 – Kamp Angst

August 13-16 It was a festive night at Kamp Angst that evening as we celebrated yet another gathering at this place that means so much to us.  Coming here was the first trip Joanna and I took as a couple not long after we moved in together in 1981 and we’ve returned almost every year […]

West Coast Summer 2017 – Cisco Fest 2017-Part Two

August 10-12 We would have another full day on Saturday, some shopping in the morning for the BBQ we planned to have later at Jessica and Kris’ apartment and then an afternoon with them hitting a couple of places in Oakland.  Doug, Evan and I made the supermarket run to a Safeway not far away, […]

West Coast Tour 2016 – Kamp Angst/Rogue River – Part Two

  Timeline: September 19-24 We arose the next morning ready for another big breakfast and weren’t disappointed.  This is not fancy food, but it is good quality and there is plenty of it, something like eating at home if your Mom was a good cook.  We made our own sandwiches this time, packed up our […]

West Coast Spring Swing, Part Four

May 5-17 Wednesday was our day to spend some time in Grants Pass, stopping at a brew pub we’d visited our last time through in 2015 and checking in with our longtime friend from Los Angeles, Mark.  We spent the morning reading and writing and in the early afternoon drove the forty minutes it takes […]

West Coast Spring Swing, Part Three

  May 5-17 We left Monday morning after seeing Jessica and Kris (J&K) off to work, heading north on I-80 towards Sacramento, stopping briefly at a Starbucks to redeem a reward, in this case a gigantic latte, before turning north on the I-505 (a nice short-cut eliminating the need to go into Sacramento) and hooking […]

Holiday 2014 – The Last House on the Dirt Road off the County Road – Part 2

January 8-12, 2015 On Saturday, with a visit to Grants Pass for dinner scheduled for the evening, Joanna and I took our bikes out for a ride down to Selma and back. It was cold, but not uncomfortably so, and the work of cycling warmed us up after a time. We’d originally thought about taking […]
